Franconian beer hits California!

That’s right folks, the Franconians are coming to California. Soon, and maybe even as we speak, BevMo stores across the state will be filling their shelves with some wonderful lagers from what might just be the best beer region on Earth. Look for fresh 5L mini-kegs from Kulmbacher, as well as bottles of Kulmbacher Pils, EKU Pils, Kapuziner Weisse, and Kapuziner Schwarz-Weizen. BUT, wait…it gets better. We are going to dig deeper into Franconia still. You should also look for small amounts of Mahr’s Brau Weiss, their special Der Weisse Bock and Spezial Rauchbier Lager.
It doesn’t stop there, either. Dan slipped some more specialties into those direct shipments from Franconia. Check this out:

Keesmann-Bräu Bamberger Herren Pils
Löwenbräu Buttenheim Ungespundetes Lagerbier
Weissenohe Eucharius Märzen
Kundmüller Weiherer Rauch
Ahornberger Maibock

There isn’t much of these to go around, so find them quickly and drink them while they are nice and fresh. You’ll be glad you did.

Once you find yourself addicted to Franconian beer, you’ll want to check in with Fred, who runs the Online Guide to Franconian Beer. The folks there might be able to help you track down these Franconian treats out in the Golden State. You’ll also find lots of great photos and notes on the region.
