 ...so, I had many good beers. Beers from Magic Hat, Sherwood Forest, Gritty McDuff's, Long Trail, Gardner and an assortment of others. The weather was great, 92, and all this was happening on a beach by a lake. The lake was closed, for obvious reasons. they had guards on the beach, just to enforce the closure. I did take notes on the beers I tasted, but it would take too much room on this blog, and besides, it's time we move on.

I did manage to make it to The Publick House in Brookline, MA. It is a very rustic looking pub, which reminded me a lot of the European pub. Rooms inside of rooms is the theme. Well worth the stop. The beers were very well cared for. Appropriate glassware, temperatures. the bartender was very knowledgeable and personable. Definitely going back there.

Went back to the hotel and hit the bar. The Hyatt hotels are not the places to go to, to find different styles of beer. I had a Sam Adams Summer and then switched to gin and tonics, double/tall. Came back to Anchorage and am very relieved to have the beers we do have. Believe it or not, there were some beers we have here that they cannot get on the East Coast.

Anyway, on with the show.......

Oktoberfest traditionally starts this coming Saturday. We are kicking it off with a special dinner of braised pork shank with spaetzel. Along with Sauerbraten and ginger snap gravy. I can't keep my fingers out of it. the meat is so tender and flavorful. Don't worry, I'll save some, but you better get here early, it won't last long. 

Until next time....

Re: The End....And Oktoberfest

The Pork shank is excellent, I indulged on a bone marrow too! the gravy gave a good flavor to the spaetzel noodles. I even found a tiny crack of the egg shell- made me happy meaning that noodles are real deal-homemade, ahh! good food and deutschen beer time!
