At the Wall of Flame
John Wayne, a great philosopher and thinker, one of Hollywood’s very great mimes once said, “Beer may not solve your problems, but neither will water or milk.”
So much for the practical benefits, but we prefer to focus on pleasure. During one of these concentration exercises, we encoutered the Riegele Brewery from Augsburg. The assortment is very impressive, and the qualities and taste of the beer will also convince any wine drinker. They do not only focus on traditional beers, but also require exceptional vintage beers and the Riegele Michaeli, one of our “all-time-favorites”, as they say today. Graduate beer sommelier Torsten Spörl will guide us through the evening.
Our host is a Berlin legend: Like the beer, Herbert Beltle is originally from Augsburg. Since 1981 he has lived in Berlin. He is forgiven for the short interruption in Munich. In 1988, he brought the “Altes Zollhaus” on the Landwehr Canal to life, followed by the Aigner in 1999. Since 2007, he has also been running the “Weingrün” in Mitte. In the meantime, Beltle has said goodbye to the gastronomic operations of the Zollhaus and Aigner and has also handed over the Horcher winery. He wants to step back a little, but the exceptional gastronome keeps the “Weingrün”. Here he also operates a flame wall grill on which he prefers to prepare large cuts of meat, which is the theme of the evening.
So, let yourself be surprised by which parts Herbert Beltle carves and serves down from the Wall of Flames. The pints are filled with competence and enthusiasm by the esteemed Torsten Spörl. What could possibly go wrong? Wake up the beer in the beast, enter with us the Wall of Flame and enjoy this evening in the wonderful “wine green” of Herbert Beltle.
