Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 76: Der Biergarten

To celebrate the upcoming wedding of my colleague, S, a group of us gathered for an "unbridaled shower" this afternoon at Der Biergarten:

This is a relatively new spot in Midtown that's entirely outside and follows the German tradition of a beer garden, according to the web site.  Luckily, there are large umbrellas installed over the recycled wood community tables, or I wouldn't have lasted much more than about 5 minutes in the direct sun with temps in the high 80s today!

The menu is focused on a couple dozen beers (and 1 cider) on tap along with some appropriate snacks, including soft pretzels, french fries, and sausage.  I enjoyed the Two Rivers Pomegranate Cider.  The pretzel was decent, but not as good as the pretzel sticks at The Great Dane in Madison (those are still my favorite and the model against which I measure all others).

When I was looking for images of Der Biergarten online, I found this great shot of dachsaunds on the deck:

We didn't see any puppies during our visit today, but that photo was just begging to be shared as part of this post!
