Four visits to Kelheim and four visits to Kloster Weltenburg. The boat journey up the Donau Gorge is simply superb, a must. It was as we approached the oldest brewing monastery in Germany on the last trip in 2008 that I let the Chaps know that the Bier isn’t actually that wonderful. The killer yeast taste that too many microbreweries suffer from is everpresent.
One of the Brothers managed to take a boat which did not let him of at the Kloster. He was last heard of sailing on a barge towards Berlin…

This is the Bier that most people drink. Again, not outstanding.
