Chris Alltmont, the brewmaster, gave us a tour of the facilities and we learned a lot about Gordon Biersch. He was a great ambassador for the company. Give this guy a raise! They focus on German beer styles, so they tend to have more lagers than ales. These beers reminded me of sitting in the beer gardens of Germany's Bavarian region. Big thumbs up to the Schwarzbier and Märzen. The Schwarzbier was my favorite. It was a dark lager with roasted, chocolaty coffee notes and very lively mouthfeel.
Next time I head to the Arena District I will definitely be stopping into Gordon Biersch to see what their seasonal beer is and to taste some of that delicious Schwarzbier. Cheers. Thanks for the invite Chris.
