It occurred to me I don't drink German beers often.

What else to they have worth drinking besides wheats and lagers?

Don't say Rauchbier. It doesn't count.

That's a good link, but I need short and easy answers in the form of German beer recommendations.

Beer doesn't ship well. It doesn't store well. The stuff you find here is not a good representation of German beer. I can only tell you what I was told, Come on over and visit.

I don't need to fly to Belgium to drink a great Belgian beer. What's the deal with Germany?

There are many wonderful German beers. My favorites are pilsners, oktoberfests, bocks, dopplebocks, etc, but most of them are lagers of course.

I like Kolsch and altbiers, but they are almost impossible to find in the US.

In retrospect, it appears the Germans really screwed themselves with the Bavarian purity law of 1516.
