Weihenstephaner, iPhone 6, video

Stopped into a Bavaria Restaurant near Palm Beach, Aruba, DWI for a tasty Weihenstephaner. Bavaria is a great place for all sorts of German beer and food. They’re going to be adding some new things to the menu soon. So, if you’re visiting the island, check in to see what’s on offer. He’s the quick look video:

That’s a darn good beer, served by pleasant people. Enjoy every meal… and drink, too. Bon dia from Aruba.

Bavaria German Restaurant, Aruba (2014)

I usually stop in to Bavaria German Restaurant during each visit to Aruba. Bavaria serves up all your German food favorites with plenty of beer choices as well. Owner Peter and his team are happy to explain the different beers, so don’t be afraid to ask. I tried a couple, including this one:

Of course I wanted to have a typical German meal and went with the bratwurst, mashed potatoes, and red cabbage that you see next:

The spicy mustard really makes the taste pop. Indulge liberally in that. The prices here are excellent, giving you good value for your money, within sight of the big hotels on Palm Beach. During the meal, I had a very interesting conversation, learning things about Germany and that part of Europe. Enjoy every meal!

Kloster Andechs Dunkel

I wanted to try another beer from the Andechs Monastery. That last doppelbock dunkel was mighty tasty. So, I went with the weissbeir dunkel (minus the doppelbock part). Here it is:

I poured it a little too fast. Still, the head on this beer was frothy good, kind of a like preview of the show. And the show was smooth, a bit creamy, lots of body, and deeply flavorful. This beer thing might get to be a regular feature here at The Bent Page. Soon I’ll be visiting with some German friends who have native beers at their fingertips. Uh, oh!

Andechs Doppelbock Dunkel

While not much of a beer drinker, I do enjoy those hearty brews of the “dunkel” style. The Andechs Doppelbock Dunkel is my favorite so far. Here’s a look at the bottle:

I should have poured in into a glass, but tell the truth, I was guzzling this! It has a velvety feel and a hint of chocolate aftertaste. In other words, a mighty fine beverage, especially on a chilly fall afternoon. Fortunately, I have a store close to home that sells all manner of exotic beers, with knowledgeable people at the counter to help with making a selection. Bottoms up!
