Any idea how many german beers there are? First there is already so many different kinds of beer (Alt, Pils, Hefe, Bock etc etc.), then there is the different brands of each kind of beer.

Even in Singapore I am always amazed to see how many different german beers are being sold here.

Is it a white (weissbier) beer or a "clear" normal beer? Lombargo doesnot ring a bell with me...

German Beer Glasses

Post by German Beer Glasses » Sat, 16 Jul 2005 5:20 pm

The tallest German beer glasses are the Weissbier/Hefeweizen (wheat beer) glasses, e.g. Erdinger, Paulaner etc...

Does the glass you are talking about come with a wooden support?
That isn't German... However, I only know, that it isn't German, but I don't know, where it comes from...

The one with a wooden support for the glass (to hold it thru the wooden handle) is the famous Belgian bier "kwak". The glass has a wide circular bottom and lower part and then a slim upper part. When drinking it from the wooden handle, you will get the beer "at once", in a way it will be "thrown in the face" so to speak. Given the fact it is containg 8% alcohol, you will feel a different reality appear quite fast after consuming 1 or 2 Kwak. :wink:

Wish the OP could give a few more details what he is referring to?

Belgian "Hoogarden" good too, but "Erdinger" white much better

Hoegaarden is not so much better or worse then for example Erdinger, it is all a matter of personal taste, isn't it? Erdinger has more carbonic acid, is lighter in taste and less "sour" then a Hoegaarden. Each has its own distinguished taste?


Duvel I know too well, it is a dangerous beer carpe diem.... High alcohol percentage of about 8,5% and ferments in the bottle. It is also Flemish dialect for "Devil", which explains :lol:

I prefer the German "pils" beers for a nice drink when I am "thirsty", whereas most of the heavy Belgian beers are more for a relaxing afternoon drink, accompanied by some good cheeses or other snacks.

My favorite is Trappiste Rochefort, the nr. 10 version, which is almost like wine, alcohol percentage 11.3% and a bit sweet aftertaste, heavy bodied and very tasteful. But I wouldn't like to drink it here in Singapore's tropical climate, much more a beer for a cold winter afternoon in the Belgian ardennes mountains, after a good hiking and then chill out in front of a chimney with a nice warm woodfire burning.

Eric, I can of course only agree with your comments about beer and appropriate environment/climate. Unfortunately it looks like we need to adjust ourselves a bit since cold winter afternoons in Singapore are not on the agenda for the next years...
Indeed I learned enjoying Belgian beers while living in Europe, there are so many available, it's amazing... But I can't remember tasting the Trappiste Rochefort.

FYI I recently discovered that there is a real Belgian brasserie in Singapore, the place is called Oosters (http://www.oosters.com.sg/), they have a good selection of beers (23) and food is good as well. And guess what? They serve Rocheforte 10!!!

Dead Poet, if you read this, please wait for my return from business trips before having a WNDC session there!!!

Well well Carpe Diem, that I call a good advice!

You better have a short trip ahead, or otherwise I will not wait for the WNDC to go to Oosters in that case, I will just go there myself.

And since the winter is not coming to Singapore, I will just close my eyes while sipping the Rochefort 10, should work out fine :lol:

Good tip, thanks again!

Eric

For those erdinger draft seekers out there, go to WNDC this week and you may be in luck ;)

Crossroads at the Marriott serve Erdinger on tap as well.
