Fortunately, the L train was back in service this weekend, so getting there was a snap. The street around the subway stop was super cute and full of tons of hipster shops and restaurants. I wore my hipster hat so I'd fit in...
It was a bit chilly and windy, so instead of eating at the market we went to a restaurant nearby, where I had an absolutely perfect grilled cheese sandwich with bacon and apple. It was on challah bread, so it was just the perfect brunch blend of sweet and savory flavors.
Lyns: Schneider Weisse Original
Fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, and aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced.
Nora: Gaffel Kolsch
This Cologne beer is light yellow in color and has a neutral flavor with a full malty aroma and a dry undertone.
Jen: Radler of Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse
Classic Bavarian wheat ale brewed with 50:50 malted wheat to malted barley. Special yeast provides unique phenolic aromas of banana and cloves with a dry, tart citrus edge.
Thanks to Jen, I now know that a radler is a mix of beer and lemon-lime soda. Oh, the things you learn in Brooklyn!
