Day: Head off solo to Kloster Andechs
Evening: Reinheitsgebot Festival in Freising
Had to run solo as I was getting peopled out and feeling old after 4 days with the 20-somethings. I headed to Andechs on the recommendation of my friends, Katherine & Michael. It was one of the most truly lovely times I have spent. I poked around and even managed to get an impromptu tour of the brewing facility by a charming young man from Oklahoma.
Seems I didn’t miss much. While I was sitting in the beer garden in the sun and enjoying what is probably the most incredible doppelbock known to mankind, the rest of the group had a dry day inside Krones.
We met back around dinner, and headed to the Reinheitsgebot Festival in the square. Much, much beer was drunk, then tequila. The less said about the rest of the night, the better.
