Delicious and hard-to-find beers coming soon: Weltenburger Barrock Hell & Bayern Maibock

Our two kegs of Weltenburger Kloster Barrock Hell just arrived today (along with matching beer glasses). That may not mean much to you now, but it's a big deal to us. Don got a chance to try this German lager in bottled form about 18 months ago, and enjoyed it so much that he has been trying to get it on draft ever since.

And we waited. And waited. And now it's finally here. We think there are two kegs west of the Mississippi and we have them both. Muahahahaha! It's an expensive beer, so it will be at a higher price than our regular German lagers ($6.50/½ liter), but Don says the taste is well worth it. It should be on tap this weekend, so keep your eyes on the "What's on Tap" list here on the blog's sidebar or you can subscribe to our Twitter feed and get our beer change updates via the web or even via SMS on your mobile phone!

In a similar vein, the brewmaster from Bayern Brewing, Missoula's oldest brewer, stopped by last week. He talked with Don and enjoyed sampling much of the Shultzy's menu while talking about his beers. We're lucky to have secured the last two kegs of Bayern's current year's production of Bayern Maibock, and it should also be on tap this weekend.

Hopefully, well get some nice beer drinking weather this weekend to complement these two great beers.
