Zingaro – Don Fulano Fuerte


After all this bourbon whiskey, it is time to focus on some interesting agave spirit again! In the case of the Don Fulano Fuerte, we are not only talking about a high quality tequila, but it is also bottled at overproof.

You Can Call Me Beercules: Riedenburger Dolden Sud IPA


As promised with the Riedenburger Sommer Sud, here is my review of its bigger brother the Riedenburger Dolden Sud IPA. Right away I can tell you that this is one of my favourite IPAs.

However, I also admit that sometimes champagne is a little bit pricey. This is why I am always looking for a bottle with a great value for money like the M. Massaux! Read more

However, Felix did not stop at making his own individual rum, but he also wants to share the knowledge he gained on his journey towards his finished spirit. Of course, when he invited me Munich to join his Master Class paired with a seminar on distilling I did not hesitate and quickly booked a train ticket! Read more

You Can Call Me Beercules! – Onkel Albert Saison Rye Beer


We Germans like to be proud of traditions and if there is one tradition on top of all of them it is the “Reinheitsgebot”! A lot of people mistake it for a law and think that beer is only allowed to contain barley, hops and water. Yet, another thing we Germans sometimes are is ignorant. This is why today I want to talk about a beer that is brewed according to the “Freiheitsgebot”. What this strange thing is and how the beer tastes like we will find out further on! Read more
