Remembering & reminiscing this Memorial Day weekend with some Glen Moray 18 Single Malt Scotch Whisky & my Stetson Shady Oak Farm Amon Carter 3X from Washer Bros. I try & save any 18 yr Old for special occasions.
PS: In watching the documentary I noticed when the Germans pour a bottled beer into a glass they pour down the inside of the glass to minimize the head just like we do. But when they get down to ~1/4th they stop pouring in order to swirl the bottle around. The Brewmaster gave the explanation that after bottling the yeast tends to settle out into the bottom of the bottle taking with it some of the flavor. By swirling the last of the bottle he mixes the yeast into foam that will sit on top of the glass creating the taste & creamy mouthfeel we enjoy.
Enjoyed this lovely Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen when I was in Berlin. Went well with the „Tiroler Brettljause“, described as "Wurst- und Schinkenspezialitäten von unserem Kitzbüheler Hausmetzger Huber, Verhackertes, Grammelschmalz und Obatzda, dazu Radi, Butter und Bauernbrot". Went down a treat.
The restaurant is called Weihenstephaner Berlin am Hackescher Markt.
