    Most overrated beer

    When were you in Stuttgart? I was in the Navy and attached to USEuCom at Patch Barracks for 6 months in late 1975. (God that was a LONG time ago!) Hated to leave Germany after only 6 months.

    What book is on your nightstand? Readers!

    Looking for grassy-herbal hops

    Schwarzbier - Examples in the Midwest

    My step-son lives I'm Chicago and told me about Dovetail. I had a Dunkel from them tonight. Their Czech Dark is great also. Good stuff. Highly recommend their lagers.

    Trappist breweries in Europe that offer tours? Looking for recommendations

    Wow! I just looked. It was May 2015. It doesn't seem that long ago. I still have fond memories of the monasteries and (of course) the beer.
