Optimator on Tap for Starkbierzeit at the Edelweiss!
The time encompassing Lent is traditionally known as “Starkbierzeit”, or “Strong Bier Time”. The term dates back to when monks would sustain themselves with rich, malty, and high alcohol biers during the Lenten fasts—the origin story of the Germany’s famous doppelbocks. To commemorate this and be festive, Spaten Optimator is now on tap in the Edelweiss though the end of Lent. This is a rich malty amber-colored doppelbock, served slightly warmer than most biers, and pairs wonderfully with the rich German food we serve. “Lass Dir raten, trinke Spaten.“ We also have a selection of other imported doppelbocks in bottles if you’d like to diversify.
