day 9

frastanzer s’honig

Origin: Brauerei Frastanzer Genossenschaft (Frastanz Vorarlberg, Austria)

Style: Herbed/Spiced Beer

ABV: 4.9%

Notes: Whoever put together this advent calendar sure likes Austrian beer. Anyway, there’s not much to say about this beer except it’s made with honey, as its name indicates on the label. Can you spot two more clues that would indicate it’s a honey beer? First person to answer correctly will *receive this bottle of beer, and an acknowledgement on the blog.

One interesting tidbit: During WWII, when fuel was lacking, and Brauerei Frastanzer’s delivery trucks were drafted into military service, the brewery still found a way to transport their barrels of beer – with horse drawn carts. That’s some serious dedication!

You can see the actual horses and carts in this short film.  Although I don’t understand a word they are saying, I feel the sudden urge to run my hands through some barley & hops and drink from an alpine stream.
