Maryland.

fantastic beer?

I *think* I had this many years ago but I haven't seen it "locally".
Another goody is Köstritzer Schwarzbier.

I remember getting this at the Peculiar Pub in NYC "back in the days".

Very tasty, but haven't seen it in years.

Vintage Cellars has it listed on their website:

Wow someone else remembers this one.  I got it all the time in the late 70's
and early 80's in Mass.  Last time I had it was 1992 from some specialty
store in D.C.  Man I am not sure there ever was a better beer.  Puts any
German export to shame. Even Hacker Pshor.  I checked out the Vintage
cellars web site. They list the  Moncschof WURZGARDEN RIESLING .   I for one
dont like the Riesling beers.  There is nothing like a dark lager.

I did some quick searching on the various ways of spelling Monkshof.  Looks
like the large brewery closed in 1999. Beer is now brewed by  Kulmbacher
Brauerei.  www.kulmbacher.de   They dont have an English site and I dont
know German.  I found a list of what types of Monkshof are left but cant for
the life of me find it again.   Hmmm.

No, I meant to search for Kulmbacher on the Vintage Cellars site. Here's an
example:

It's spelled Mönchshof.

Re: Kulbacher Monkshof


The Mnchshof Schwarzbier is very available in Franconia (Germany,
that is -- of which Kulmbach is a part)). Not that this helps you
directly, but it is still being brewed. I'd put it in the same class as
Kstritzer (for me that's daming with faint praise) -- an OK beer.

We get the Monchshof Schwartzbier in KC. It comes in a 500ml swingtop.
I thought it was pretty tasty. You'd think it would be available on
the east coast.
