Prost from Maisel’s in Bayreuth, Germany

Prost from Maisel’s in Bayreuth, Germany

Family-owned since 1887, Maisel’s iN Bayreuth, Germany is an iNSIDE EUROPE favorite brewery.

Maisel’s Hefeweizen is likely the best known beer from Bayreuth’s largest brewery of the same name. If you haven’t tried it yet, well, what are you waiting for? While Maisel’s Hefeweizen is distributed overseas, the wide selection of their other beers, many seasonal, are only available locally in Bayreuth, Bavaria, Germany.

While all beers are a must-try, we are also big fans of the brews from their craft beer line ‘Maisel’s + Friends’, which include both traditional German-style, but also collaborations.

What do we love about Maisel’s? The brewery dates back to 1887, and is still family-owned, now in the fourth generation with Jeff Maisel at the helm. The museum adjacent to the brewery and fittingly named ‘Beer-Experience-World’ is fun to explore and gets you a first taste, too. However, the real highlight is spending time at ‘Liebesbier’. The brew pub/restaurant with beer garden is as close to beer and food paradise as it gets. Make sure to come hungry and thirsty. You’ll be loosening that belt by a notch or two by the time the night is over!

We highly recommend staying overnight iN Bayreuth to make the most of your visit. There is so much more to see, do and… drink! No matter where your journey continues to the next day, it shouldn’t be until after Frühschoppen with a Maisel’s or two…

Come hungry to Greece, especially Crete

Typical lunch in Crete with different mezze
This so-called light lunch of local Mezze may make you consider skipping dinner, but please don’t!

The typical and so-called light lunch of local Mezze may make you consider skipping dinner — not that you should!

Served family-style, you will always find freshly baked local breads, cheeses, seasonal vegetables as salads, roasted, stuffed with rice, sometimes roasted meats and much more.

The feast you see above is offered at our favorite family-owned winery just outside the capital city of Heraklion — prepared fresh every day.

On the menu is what the Paterianakis sisters, their parents and team are eating themselves, cooked by mom.

Not pictured are their all-organic wines that pair perfectly well with these dishes.

Here at the Domaine, just as at many typical tavernas, a small dessert is offered complimentary by the hosts.

Make sure to leave a little room (or a lot).
