We packed fresh baked french bread rolls, Italian prosciutto, salami, baby Swiss cheese, my Bulgarian Shopska salad, pickled cucumber salad, and a home baked angel food cake. We drank ice cold Hoffbrau Sommer Bier in liter steins and I can tell you it went down mighty fine.
Jac enjoyed her initial visit so much that tomorrow, Saturday, May 23rd we are taking her to Kloster Andechs where she will enjoy her second bier garten. Steve, Martin, and Jochim are pedalling their bikes (45 K), but the girls are heading off in cars and we will meet them there.
Kloster Andechs is located on the Ammersee, another lovely lake in Munich. It is secluded and not generally known to foreign visitors. It attracts people because of it's gorgeous rococo monastery at Andechs and brews what many believe to be the best beer in Germany.
Here is a You Tube video showing Kloster Andechs and the monastary where the beer is made.
