It was too hot to try dark, heavy beers on this trip so I stuck with the traditional lagers. This was in Strasbourg.
Castle Eltz along the Mosel river
Looking down. When the castle cisterns ran out of water the servants had to climb down and bring it back up in buckets. The water is another hike down from the lover level.
The Rhine river along St. Goar.
Rheinfel's Castle in St. Goar had it's own brewery!
