The Land of Kolsch and Riesling

Today is a BIG day for me. Due to work I'll be living the next three months in Cologne Germany. I know its rough, but someone has to do it. For those that don't know, Cologne is the land of Kolsch beer, a clean crisp style of beer only brewed in Cologne (although there are a few American Craft breweries taking up the style). Cologne is also just north of the Mosel Wine region, aka the land of Riesling. As you can imagine I will be partaking in both, along with trips to Belgium, Munich, Dusseldorf, Berlin, and other places to check out the local drinks. Somewhere in there I'll also find some time to write about my experiences, so the blog will continue to be updated.

Make sure you find your way to Dusseldorf, only one hour away. The alt bars in the old town are amazing.
