I'm going to beat Peter to the punch (I went along for the dinner). Peter tried the Weltenberger Dunkel and I tried the Weltenberger Alsa (sp?) Bock. They're pretty similar beers and both are quite nice. Not too bold or too mild - a nice mix in the middle with a mellow, malty flavor. Good stuff.

The food was outstanding as well. I had the pork rib roast with apple and plum compote, pickled red cabbage and mashed potatoes, and I'm absolutely stuffed!

pmbuko -- I saw something similar on TV...Tech TV's Unscrewed with Martin Seargent, I beleive. They used a filter specifically made to filter cheap alcohol and a brita (special one cost like $100) and almost everyone that tried it liked the brita better (no blind tests, though). The assistant that was doing the tests was loaded (or pretended to be) by the end of the show. It was hilarious!

Yes, the food was excellent! They make a fantastic sauerkraut!

My beer was loaded with malty goodness and had just a tinge of hoppy bitterness to balance things out. It went down really smooth. The only problem was the food was so good (I had the schweinebraten with beer sauce) I didn't drink the beer fast enough to order a second. I guess I should have gone with the full liter instead of the half.

Tom, if you're ever in my neck of the woods, we're going there.

I'm feeling a little schizophrenic after the politics thread but wtf... I like German beer, too.

bigjohn, I had Peroni once about 10 years ago. My memory of it is as you described - no need to try it again. Peroni is an oddity. I would really recommend further experimentation with German 1/2 liters (for cost savings), English ales, and affordable pilseners from eastern Europe. You'll likely develop a pallette (sp?) and discover some new tastes without wasting money on beers you won't like.

BTW, the persistence of a dense head of foam in the glass is indicative of a well made beer (assuming it is not simply over carbonated).

yea, the peroni was not too bad, not too good.. just beer. sometimes that is OK, but most of the time, i wanna KNOW i am drinking something.

i am headed to the grocery store either this afternoon or tomorrow, so the next taste test is soon in hand. my selection is starting to run thin at the grocery store, i might have to start going out to liquor city and see what sort of selection they have out there. i still havent found one that was undrinkable, but the extra pale ale from san luis obpispo was pretty horrible. if i stay clear of those types, i should be fine.

BTW- my wife had her first drink in over a year this weekend. she didnt drink during her pregnancy, and she decided to have a few glasses of wine. i got her some that she really likes.. it was 'Texas Red' from the llano estacado wine company. bottled in 2000. there are several small wineries popping up in texas, and this is one of her favorites. i made a nice almond toasted roast, that was drizzled in wine sauce, and tossed veggies in a red wine vinagrete dressing. i had to use the whole bottle somehow... it was good dinner, and she had that warm, fuzzy look, so i think she got a little buzz on!!

Texas wine, eh? Is that like Milwaukee or St. Louis beer?

Actually there are quite a few "very good" Texas wines...

There is the Fall Creek vineyard in Tow, Texas as well as Messina Hof in Bryan...

Happened by a World Market that was holding a wine tasting last night...good stuff, Maynard.
