German beer OktoberfestI had the chance to interview Horst Dornbusch, perhaps the premier expert on German beers, for this recent roundup of five must-try rare brews in Rhapsody magazine, just in time for Oktoberfest. He was a very charming guy and managed to give me a gloss of the entire history of beer in about 15 minutes. While I am not going to get too detailed into that here, I did want to include an additional beer he recommended that could not fit into our roundup — an ideal drink for those seeking an organic option to sip at their local beer hall.

At Der Ratskeller in München (a vaulted restaurant in the basement of the old City Hall at Marienplatz in the very center of Munich, try a 100% organic Weizen or Pils from Neumarkter Lammsbräu; or a 100% organic “historic emmer bier” from the Riedenburger brewery.
