Dallas has few diversions other than eating, drinking and shopping.....and shopping does not interest us.
So we spend our time hopping from restaurant to restaurant and to every pub that we can find in search of the perfect meal and the perfect beer.

We randomly review restaurants and bars, dishes and beers at whim and give our brutally honest opinions of our findings. And while we concentrate on Dallas, we travel far and wide to sample cuisine from all regions of the country and beyond.

Beer Review - Schneider Aventinus Eisbock

Schneider Aventinus Eisbock - 12% ABV

So the story is that in the 1940's a load of Schneider Aventinus (which in my opinion is the finest wheat beer in the world) was being shipped in a container with no temperature controls during winter.  The beer partially froze which caused a separation between the elements of the beer and the water, concentrating the beer flavors from the water which remained frozen in the bottle.  60 years later Hans Peter Drexler, the head brewer from Schneider, decided to replicate the sensational brew from history.

Typically the Aventinus in recommended as an Autumn brew but this fatty may be more suited for wintertime imbibing.  The smell is of dark fruits, cloves and bananas from the yeasts, sugar and the ethers of the considerable alcolhol content.  Not much in the way of carbonation and the color is a dark brown.  You will taste lots of malts and I was pleasantly surprised to get some hop dryness as well.  Cloves, bananas, fig, caramel and the alcohol burn make for quite a complex flavor.  Dandy brew indeed.

 If you are visiting the Munich area try one of their brauhauses.

The "Weisses Bräuhaus" in Munich, Tal:
The "Weisses Bräuhaus" in Munich, Tal is the founding place of our brewery. It is the place where the founder of the company, Georg Schneider I., brewed his first Schneider Weisse Original in 1872. Now as before, it is regarded as one of the most beautiful and traditional beerhaus in this region.

Weisses Bräuhaus in Munich, Laim:
You are looking for a romantic beer garden in Munich? Then you should drop in at the Weisses Bräuhaus in ‚Berg am Laim'. The refreshing beer specialities and the Bavarian traditional dishes have been the reasons for many a visitor to become a regular guest.

Weisses Bräuhaus Kelheim:
Here you are very close to the "source of Schneider Weisse": The Weisses Bräuhaus Kelheim is located on the premises of our brewery. Many bicycle tourists and lots of locals come to its cosy rooms and the romantic beer garden to relax and enjoy life.
