I was a bit on the old side myself, but it was the coolest thing to someone who had never been to one -- what a ball we had!

If I'm remembering right, only the weizens came in the 0.5L glasses and the Pils were always in the smaller glasses. I was in the southern Germany area last summer, not far from Ramstein in a place called Homborg (sp) and Swiebrueken (sp). It was the Saar region. Awesome beers, my favorite was the hefe-weisse by Franziskaner. The Karlsburg (or Carlsburg, I can't recall) was the local beer made in Homborg. Bitburger was also popular there as a Pils.
Good luck remembering, with some help it'll come to you!
Hefeweizens are exclusively served in a Weissbier glass in Germany like the one below. Veltins pictured in my previous post is a pils. They will be served in a .3 or .4 glass or a .5 mug.




Here's one of my favorite Pilsener's

Yum.. you all are making me want to go to my favorite german restaurant for dinner...

On tap, last I checked, they had Weihenstephan, Spaten Optimator, BBK, Jever, Steigel, HB, Warsteiner, Radeberger, Konig Pils, and DAB. And those are just the ones I remember!!! I think they also have Lowenbrau. They didn't carry it for a long time because it used to be brewed differently for the American market, but apparently it back being brewed exclusively in Munich now and the quality is much improved. I love that place...

Yes indeed! Bring the SWMBO and have a full german dinner, with an appetizer and a liter of beer for under $50.

As I recall, a liter is $10. Entrees are $10-20.

Nice, my last time in IA I heard of such a place, but we never made it there. Something to look forward to next time, I guess.

I live in Missouri, home of many old German settlements. I know of several great places, but I just don't have the time to make daytrips every weekend like I'd like to :-)

I'm going to have to make a visit to my favorite liquor store this week and see if they have any of these classics, or if Joe can order me a case or two in from any of his suppliers that might be a fun little thing!
