Beer for Strong Men (and women too)

Munich Daily 093

Welcome to a special time of year in Munich, a period called the Strong Beer Season – where all the local breweries make a unique brew that is higher in alcohol content, stronger in taste, and often darker in color to get locals through the Lent season. The original Strong Beer, called “Salvator” was actually made by monks as a way to provide more dissolved solids to ease fasting during the season of Lent. Well the Season lasts through March 27th, and you can find Strong Beers from each of the big 6 breweries in Munich at each of their signature beer halls.
