Austria Vacation Log: Day 3, Post 3 of 3 Beer!

After work and sightseeing, we all get together for a trip to the Hirschgarten biergarten. The beer was served in only one size- maß. That’s one liter, or slightly more than 2 pints a piece. Food was standard biergarten fare:

  • World-class pretzels
  • Grilled chicken
  • Spare ribs
  • Giant white radishes

and lots more.

On the outskirts, they had an enclosure filled with red deer (“hirsch” in german)
