Pilgrim Spring Beer Tapping

On the day the spring officially started (at least according to the calendar as the weather was nice and mild on this day), the Pilgrim brewery released their spring beer which is also called their Easter beer. It's a Weizenbock with approx. 8 % of alcohol. It was on tap during the event and I tried and liked it! Another splendid beer! I also took the chance to try the Imperial Stout which has been released a few days before, also a very good and easy drinkable beer. According to Martin Wartmann "it's not a typical Imperial Stout, it could be also called a Baltic Porter". However you name it, it's tasty, but that's just my opinion.

Due to the very good weather with sunshine, a blue sky and very mild temperatures the place in front of the brewery was full with visitors. I met there with some friends, enjoyed the tasty Easter beer and smoked a fantastic Hoyo de Monterrey Double Corona from 1996. A good combo and definitely a nice afternoon.
