Woo hoo! It's December 1 again!

I pulled the first beer out of the box this morning to chill. Grantler Hell from a Bavarian brewery that was founded in 1183.

I'm looking forward to a month of German beer.

I saw it and skipped it. It seemed a little pricey for a box of German beer. Hopefully you'll report if that was a bad decision.
It's not a popularity contest, it's beer!

Thus far they have been pretty darn good. Four Helles, a festbier, a Kellerbier, and my favorite this far, Der Schwarze Bock from Kraftbierwerkstatt which is a pretty tasty dark lager.

Some club members have this one or the ALDI one. Kind of seems odd that the costco is mostly German beers and Aldi has a lot of IPA.

I had to look up what an ALDI is. Never heard of it.

I'm glad the Costco German beer calendar is not full of IPA. Yesterday's beer was an IPA, and it was terrible. Worst beer so far.

I don't think the Germans like hops.
