So last night I found an awesome store that stocks a ton of imports from Germany. I’ve never had a German import and I’m looking for some direction. For one, is there any difference in the beer itself such as brewing processes or ingredients? Second, is there any kind of direction I should go in regarding style, or just wing it like I have been with local brews? From what I saw, it doesn’t look like the beers I’ve had so far share a ton in common with the particular offerings I looked at. It might sound silly but is there German import IPA’s, fruit ales, and milk stouts or are those styles not common? And if they are common and I’m just not seeing them at this particular establishment, then are they even worth getting? As in, are they any different from the same styles I get at home? Lots of questions, hoping for some guidance. Cheers.
