Our recommendation for the Hefe-Weißbier Naturtrüb

A traditional Bavarian beergarden dish, which is also very favoured at the Oktoberfest: a Obatzda cheese. An aromatic delicacy, topped with fresh chives - just add some pretzels and get a classic Bavarian "Brotzeit".

For the Obatzda For the topping
  • 7oz (200g) Brie cheese or Camembert cheese
