|Bier Garden....Good Times!!!|
Now for the fun part, the review! First of all my husband, enjoys beer, I'm talkin' beer connoisseur, better yet beer snob. So the fact that Bier Garden offers over 300 different types of beer was definitely a plus. Prior to arrival, I checked out the menu and honestly was not too enthusiastic about the culinary choices but was willing to give German cuisine a try. Boy were we surprised to find a gem of a restaurant nestled in Olde Town Portsmouth!! From curbside the appearance was a little leery. A shabby chic garden alley steered us to the restaurant and bar entrance. I imagine in the spring and summertime this garden would be rather quaint. After putting our name on the waiting list, we were told by a sweet hostess that our wait would be about 30 minutes. So off to the bar my hubby went and returned with two brews. Did I mention I HATE beer, Uuuugh. During our wait we sat outside taking in the view, people watching and sipping our humongo glass of beer. Okay, it was actually not so bad. We decided to try, Aventinus Eisbock. The first thing you smell and taste is banana, rare huh, transitioning to subtle notes of toasted malt, coffee, and cinnamon...and absolutely no after taste. Did I mention, this beer has a 12% alcohol content, uh....one humongo glass was all I was gonna try, trying to be a good sport here!
