Jeff Erway continues to find way to expose Burqueños to beer culture from around the world.
Erway, president of La Cumbre Brewing Co., recently purchased several Bavarian fassers, gravity-fed vessels that are found in traditional breweries in Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia, according to Erway.
“What my intention with them is to use them as a launch for our lagers when new ones come out,” he said. “My experience is that they take really good lagers, as well as kolsch and altbier, that taste really great on draft and they take them to the realm of divine. I tasted the same beer on this last trip to Cologne, Maltzmuehle, and on draft the kolsch was wonderful. Really well made.”
