Next two weekend "Anstich" lineups for Sandkerwa are finalized.

Here are the second and third weekend's Anstich lagers, scheduled to be poured for Sandkerwa NA 3, which continues at NABC's Public House & Pizzeria (3312 Plaza Drive).

To learn more about what we're trying to achieve with Sandkerwa, go here.

In celebrating Sandkerwa, we're celebrating small Franconian breweries whenever possible, and this year, this task was made easier by the Shelton Brother importing company's decision to import a special container filled with rare Franconian lagers in 20-liter, "Anstich" kegs.

These are gravity-feed kegs with no CO2 used to push the beer. We'll set them on the counter behind the bar, punch a hole in the top, and use the rubber mallet to insert a tap.

Once tapped, the 40 half-liter glasses of beer therein must be consumed forthwith, or the remainder will go flat. Because of this, we'll be selling these special beers at a special price: $5.00 per half liter. Not a drop was wasted during the first weekend, and the quality so far has been excellent!
