Bavaria's beer diversity: a must for every holiday maker
If you are staying in Bavaria, you must not miss out on the famous Bavarian beer! Treat yourself to a tasty wheat beer (note: in southern Bavaria, order a “Weißbier”), a mild pale ale or a strong bock beer.
Take some beer knowledge home with you from your holiday. The Bavarian Brewers' Association, the umbrella association for the Bavarian brewing industry, reveals everything that you want to know about Bavaria and beer on its website. Did you know, for example, that 9 out of 10 wheat beers brewed in Germany come from Bavaria? This makes Bavaria the number one wheat beer brewing region.
Delicious recipe ideas on the website of the Bavarian Brewers' Association
From the starter to the main course to the dessert – beer can go into anything. On its website, the Brewers' Association offers a series of excellent recipe ideas. The dishes combine Bavarian heartiness with extravagance: what about a fine bock beer parfait with apple and ginger sauce, for example? Vegetables in beer batter or a fresh salad dressing made from thyme, honey and Pils also make your mouth water. And the beer that you use as an ingredient is, of course, also the perfect accompaniment for the food.
Beer not only makes a wonderful ingredient in food dishes, but also in drinks. Take a look at the beer cocktail recipes. They all have one thing in common: they contain beer. The experts from the Brewers' Association know the score – and will show you precisely which beer fits perfectly into which cocktail.
