Drink of the Week: Pinkus Munster Alt

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Bread Garden Market is chock full of organic juices, vegetables, and granola — and, it turns out, organic beer. Pinkus-Muller Brewery in Münster, Germany, is the first organic, USDA-approved brewery in the world, and, as a 199-year-old business, it’s doing something right.

EXPERIENCE: Beneath an unpresuming red label featuring a crude illustration of two German guys tapping a barrel of beer is the pale gold Münster Alt. Boasting a floral scent and the smooth, palatable, and only slightly dry taste of a great white wine, the Alt may be my favorite craft beer I’ve tried all year. What can I say, the Germans know their bier.

ADVICE: It’s worth an extra dollar or two (one pint of Münster Alt costs $3.79 at Bread Garden) to test the difference between organic beer and processed domestic brands — even if, like me, you’re a lifelong lover of Bud Light. I consumed my Pinkus pint with Bread Garden’s cream cheese brownie, a combination I would recommend. And, hey, it’s a one-stop shop.
