Kreuzberg Beer Monastery


Hubs and I heard about an actual Beer Monastery in Germany about an hour away from our city so we made the trek into the country to visit this monastery!  The beer is brewed by real monks for the last couple of centuries and they also have a church there and they continue to hold services. 


They also have a hotel and restaurant attached to the monastery so you can get your party on! hahah
It's such a random place you can get your drink on and go to church..... haha.



P.S.  It was about 40 degrees F the day that we went and as you can see there are tons of people milling around getting their drink on.  The Germans are very serious, orderly and responsible people but they loveeeee to party! hahaha.


Some of the Hub's awesome new co-workers.  Brad the Pharmacist and Beth the Optomatrist :)! 

Heart them! <3


Me and my giant beer.  HAHA. Yeah right.  You guys know I don't drink.. it's apple cider :p


UMMMM. so.. I ordered the wrong thing.  The perils of living in a foreign country hahaha.  Sometimes you'll end up with scary looking uncooked dinosaur meat.  *sigh*



Pork Knuckle, potato dumplings and saurkraut
This however was DELISH!  The skin has been broiled to the point that it's crisp and delicious it tastes like chinese roast pig and the meat inside is essentially falling apart you don't even need a knife to break it apart..




Lucas's souvenir!  A giant jar of beer freshly brewed by the monks!  I think he's in LOVE. 



This thing is a small monster it's 5 liters!  For perspective I placed it next to the pretty giant beer mugs which are 1 liter.


HAH Sorry Waki couldn't resist :)


We're tourists so obviously we needed a picture under the sign!

but the person taking the picture cut out the sign!!! *ARGH*!!! hahahahaha


Germans become very VERY friendly people after a couple of beers hahaha.  This particular "friend" that we made that evening was VERRRRRY friendly hahaha.


YESSSSS. HAHAHA.  I think it was his bachelor party.  PURE AWESOMENESS!


His drunk bachelors friends took a picture of our legs HAHAHA and not us.  *SIGH*



If you guys visit Germany you must visit a Beer Monastery I think there are actually a couple scattered throughout Germany.  There is nothing like it!

You and hubby look like you're having so much fun. I've only ever been to Frankfurt airport so I guess I'm learning more about Germany through you.

  14. Haha! If you notice, Germans don't care that much about food presentation, unless it's desserts. I would order food and they would bring a slab of bratwurst and like.. nothing else. But desserts are pretty (and cake tastes lighter.)

    Also, bachelor parties are everywhere in Cologne! They typically make the bachelor do embarrassing things and they often wear similar outfits. My husband's friends gave him tasks to do, like sing Little Mermaid on the street, read a poem loudly on the tram, and buy embarrassing items. Germans are so used to seeing bachelor parties that it doesn't faze them. :)
