The trees are starting to bud, the ground painted with the vibrant colours of spring bulbs, birds twitter in the trees. It must be spring. And what's the first country that spring brings to mind? That's right, San Marino. Just kidding. You know damn well it's Germany.

Yes, April is officially German Month here at Barclay Perkins. It was either that or shameless self-promotion month. I thought you'd prefer the former. (Not that I'll be holding back on the self-promotion. The kids need shoes and I'm certainly not breaking into my beer budget to pay for them.)

To give you a taste of the fun in store, here's a table of numbers.

It's a fairly random selection of top-fermenting styles. You'll notice quite a few - Einfacher Broyhan is a good example - are barely fermented, let alone alcoholic. Only the Braunbier form Bremen had anu real sort of kick of the beers listed.

Much more random German fun will follow. Unless I forget my tgheme again. That's what happenned last month. I failed to rememebr it was Mild Month for more than 5 seconds. Remins me if forget this month's theme. Please.https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/5445569787371915337-4316745744330388318?l=barclayperkins.blogspot.com
