Anstich update: Records shattered during the opening week of Sandkerwa NA.

The results are in, and Anstich is out -- very quickly, each of the past three days, whenever a gravity-feed Franconian keg was tapped.

On Thursday, Ahornberger Landbrauerei Strößner-Bräu's Ahornberger Landbier from Konradsreuth proved to be a Dunkel, and it was delicious and short-lived: 51 minutes from the first half-liter to the last.

Friday's Zehendner Mönchsambacher Unfiltered Lager, a genuine Keller, lasted a couple of minutes longer, and then came the deluge: Zum Grunen Baum Landbier (Brauerei-Gasthof Zum Grunen Baum (Bayer) in Rauhenebrach-Theinheim), which I would describe as Vollbier, made it only 26 minutes, a new record, on Saturday.

All I can say to you is thanks.

Trust me: Next year, we'll order twice as much and be better prepared for the hysteria. Until then, show up at the Public House next week on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 5:00 p.m., or risk going without. I'll announce the lineup in a couple of days.
