Ayinger Bavarian Pils                         $6

Introduced to the US for the first time in 2017, and available year-round.  German brewers produce a beer style famous the world over, pils: a brisk golden lager with snappy hop aroma and pure barley malt flavor, originally inspired by Czech Pilsner beers. German pils beers were the original inspiration for golden lagers in the US: German brewers made this popular style when they set up new US breweries in the latter half of the 19th century.

 Ayinger Bavarian Pils is the flavor of a fruitful barley harvest, seasoned with noble hops: a brisk golden lager with snappy hop aroma and velvety-soft malt flavor, from locally-grown barley. A thick creamy head rests atop this brilliantly clear, golden elixir. Ayinger Pils shows the masterful perfection of four classic ingredients melded by a family’s generations of brewing skill: barley malt; hops; water from an Ice Age aquifer via the brewery’s well; and lager yeast.  Goat cheese or mild cheddar, grilled bratwurst with sauerkraut and pomme frites, croque monsieur, fried oysters with spicy remoulade, jerk or tandoori chicken, sushi, pound cake, or strawberry rhubarb pie. 

 

 Ayinger Brauweisse                             $6

Wheat beer has always been known as an elixir or tonic, especially if the brewer's yeast was left in the bottled beer. A very popular beer style, in Germany and around the world.  Pale color, hazy; with a huge rocky head. Inviting and perhaps a bit tart in palate, this is "brut" beer with a delicious, smooth body from a grist bill of about 60% wheat. Flavor and aroma show the characteristic Ayinger elegance and perfect balance. Finishes with a subtle spicy, fruity note from a traditional Bavarian weissebier yeast strain - some tasters find they are reminded of cloves or ripe banana.  Weiss-wurst (veal sausage), pretzels, Dusseldorf mustard, mettwurst, vegetable pâté, crab Louis, sand dabs, fried smelts, Sunday brunch. Serve in tall vase-shaped weisse glass; a thin slice of lemon as garnish is a personal choice. 

Radio Brewing Barrel Aged Scotch Ale         $15
