Taste craft brews at the Trier Bier Festival
Traditional German beer is known for its high quality and standards. While many breweries follow the Reinheitsgebot, or German Purity Law, more are beginning to branch out into the world of craft brewing. Known for its inventive styles and bold tastes, craft beer has been dominating the beer scene in the U.S. and has been slowly infiltrating the German beer market.
If you’ve been craving your favorite IPA, check out the offerings at the Trier Bier Festival Oct. 14-15. Held in the charming city of Trier, local microbrewers from around the area will offer up more than 100 varieties of hoppy goodness. What would a fest be without food? Try some of the mouthwatering street food culinary creations. Admission is 6 euros and includes your tasting glass. For more information, please visit http://kraftbraeu.de/aktuelles.html.
Tip: If you plan on staying overnight, hotels are quickly filling up. Taking the train from either Kaiserslautern or Landstuhl is a great day trip alternative.
