Weltenburger Kloster

weltenburger_bottle.jpgFantastic news, which I somehow missed last month: Weltenburger Kloster beer now has a distributor in the UK, according the Tom Cannavan over at Beer Pages.

Weltenburger’s beers were some of the most consistently interesting and excellent we tasted on our recent trip to Bavaria. The Asam Bock really is as good as Tom says, although I was even more excited at the typo on the menu which suggested a double bock with tea (“Assam Bock”). A future brewing experiment…?

The Barock Dunkel, too, is very different to many other German dark beers, and really seems to earn the “dark” title.
