Oktoberfest isn’t the only opportunity to get your German beer fix.
Authentic German bierhall, Brauhaus Schmitz (718 South St.) will tap Rothaus Tannenzäpfle, a pilsner brewed from the Black Forest Region in Germany on Friday, Feb. 20 at 7 p.m..
So what’s so special about this brew? It’s the first time the pilsner will be available on draft in the United States. The beer will be available in a .5 liters glass for $7.50.
If Bavarian brew fans can’t get to Brauhaus Schmitz on Feb. 20, there’s another notable, exclusive beer event. On Saturday, March 14 the U.S. launch of Düsseldorf’s Füchschen Alt, a copper-colored Altbier that’s been brewed since 1848 will debut and be poured the correct way, into an Alt glass.
