As we started the Brewer tour with the Burrp team and Head Brewer and Cocktail Designer,Martin Bernard guided us with the brewery tour explaining the intricate process of brewing process and the various steps involved in it.
We never knew,each ingredients and equipment are taken great care to make sure we get freshly brewed beer.
We tasted the “Doppelback” which was very intense and powerful,but my favorite was the Chilli bully which was very flavorful and does have a hint of spice that hits your senses.
Apart from tasting these two new beers, They also had a special Oktoberfest food menu which includes German Sausages, traditional German beer soup,Grilled wrust Kartofflbreim (grilled beef and chicken sausages),Homemade speatzie (Beef/Chicken) which is German pasta cooked with chicken or beef sausages and cheesy sauce served with homemade German bread dumpling.
The next one was weiner schnitzel (Beef/Chicken) which is Beef or Chicken meat loaf dipped with flour egg and bread crumbs,fried until golden brown topped with fried egg served with brown gravy.among other dishes.
