During the period of Lent, the Paulaner monks create one of my favorite beers: Salvator. This nectar of the gods was originally designed to help the brethren survive the hard fast of Lent, keeping them spry for their prayers. Today’s version is just as strong and dark as it was in the 17th century, and it fits perfectly with an Alpine ski trip. We will stave off the muscle cramps and cold weather with liters of Starkbier while skiing some of the most pristine terrain the Alps have to offer.
For those who love snow and beer, this is the perfect getaway. A twelve-day trip where we visit the famous Nockherberg Abbey and Starkbier Festival, travel to three of my favorite breweries to compare these delicious dark beers, and spend seven days skiing the Alps of Germany and Austria! To cap off the week, we visit the famous Neuschwanstein castle and the villages of Oberammergau and Murnau. This is the perfect Alpine adventure!
