Spaten-Frnaziskaner-Brau

Happy Hour: Spaten

This week was off to a good start with an extensive tasting at 2010's Winter Fancy Foods Show. But I must admit, walking around eating everything from chocolate to caviar was exhausting.

Midday, we were sampling some serious chili sauce from Indonesia. With my mouth on fire and my feet exhausted, I complained that all I wanted was a stool to sit on and a beer to cool off my palate. Now, PartySugar is famous for her bar radar, but she set a new record when she spotted barstools and something on tap before I could say the word "beer." For what was decidedly the best five minutes of the day, we kicked up our legs and threw back some fresh, ice-cold Spaten from Munich.

This traditional Bavarian lager, which has been around since 1397, poured like liquid gold, with just the right amount of carbonation. It had a light body and a slightly yeasty, but crisp aroma. What beer have you tried recently that really hit the spot?
