Mmmm.. Einbecker Beer

I just received my monthly delivery of my favorite beer, Einbecker. This is a really hard beer to find in the USA. I have a distributor in Connecticut obtain it for me and then have my In-Laws deliver it when they come to visit. This beer and I, share a great story that dates back to my college years. When I was away at college my freshmen year, we drank the cheapest stuff we could get our hands on Meister Brau, Tuborg, Blue Ribbon just to name a few. The second semester me and my college buddies said no more, from that point on we made it our point to only drink imported beer. I went to school at NYIT in Central Islip on Long Island. We found a distributor in Smithtown that sold Einbecker Ur-Bock. We fell in love with that beer that semester. That summer I traveled to Germany to see my family on my Mother’s side, which I had not seen since I was a child. My Aunts and Uncles picked me up in Frankfurt and drove me to Heckenbeck where they live. On the way we stopped at a place for lunch along the Autobahn. I believe I had some bratwurst and a beer, which beer eludes me at the moment. But seeing that I was drinking beer they asked what my favorite beer was? My reply was Einbecker Ur-Bock, everyone broke in to laughter as I sat there trying to figure out what was so funny. Once they calmed down they told me that the Brewery was only 15 minutes from the house and that they had several cases in the cellar. I visited the brewery on several occasions that summer while in Germany and was in total bliss being able to go to various pubs and have my favorite beer served at the perfect temperature and from tap. Below are a couple of pictures I took of the beer that just arrived. If you would like more information about Einbecker Beer please follow this link:
