The Place: Der Biergarten Atlanta, GA
The Peep: The Coupon Queen
The Beer: #100 Konig Ludwig Hefeweizen (ABV 5.50%)
#101 Warsteiner Premium Dunkel (ABV 4.90%)
#100 Konig Ludwig Hefeweizen (ABV 4.90%)
Our waiter was nice enough to let us have a little beer sample party since we were both unsure about what we wanted. All the beers where good, but I decided to go with the Hefe. It has a nice cloudy golden color and has a crisp taste of banana and clove. I could taste other fruity flavors, but the banana was more distinct. Thumbs up for the beer and the sample party!
#101 Warsteiner Premium Dunkel (ABV 5.50%)
It was a scary dark brown color with a white head. This beer has an extremely strong, bitter taste of apple, but in a good way. The menu said there was a hint of caramel. I must have missed that part and went straight to the apple. Thumbs up! I liked the weirdness.
Der Biergarten is the first German restaurant I’ve ever been to and probably the last. I couldn’t find an entrée on the menu that I would pay money for, but the Reuben Roll appetizer was amazing! I will definitely go back for the beer, not so much for the food.
High Fives and Shout Outs
- The Coupon Queen for having a 50% off coupon for De Biergarten. Got an appetizer and two beers for $10! Woot Woot!
- The makers of Chobani greek yogurt. Marry me.
Thumbs Downs and WTFs
- Ace Hood for saying “I’m the Derek Jeter of Hip Hop” or something of that nature in a verse of “Hustle Hard”. I get the point he’s trying to make, but when I hear that verse all I can think about is how Jeter is on the DL (that’s Disabled List for you known baseball lovers). I bet someone has already janked him about that.
