It’s crazy to think that we are already into the month of July. Birthday events, full time work schedules and a wedding engagement have thrown Megan and I into a whirlwind of planning. Somehow we managed to prepare at least two upcoming blogs and one from the month of May that was never brought to completion. We prepared a tasting of three different beers from Rothaus.
Rothaus is a brewing company in Grafenhausen, Germany. They have a highly successful line of beers including a Pils that is rated as one of the best. Comparatively, we felt that all three compared to the American standard of beer such as Budweiser, Labatt, Pabst etc. The notable difference however, was Rothaus’ unique bottle graphic and foil seal.
