They say it’s some of the best beer in the world. It’s not expensive, it’s quite sharp and has a deep flavour; it’s 5%. We met the guy in his 50s who spoke excellent German, even to the extent of having a Saxony accent. He said he’d lived in Leipzig for three years. Now either he was being trained by the Stasi for the Pathet Lao, or he brought back some expert brewing knowledge from Das Land mit dem Bier. Who knows?
