Biergarten at the US Space and Rocket Center
« on: June 10, 2016, 01:06:45 AM »
I have to brag. I just came from the Biergarten at the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL. What a great time! German bier, brats, schnitzel, potatoes, and kegged German bier under a Saturn 5 rocket!  So good!

You should brag, how awesome is that. A biergarten under a rocket in Alabama, it makes perfect sense. I love it when we humans think of random things like this to do. It renews my faith in humanity.

It was a bunch of German rocket scientists and engineers who designed that rocket and its predecessors in Huntsville. The  Germans were brought to Huntsville from Germany at the end of world war 2. Because of that German heritage and history German food and beer are big in Huntsville.

I knew Huntsville was a rocket science mecca but didn't know the German connection but it makes sense.
