Day 156 Drink: Beck's Beer
Beck's is brewed in Bremen, located in northern Germany. The city's coat of arms features a squared key and since 1876 the company has used a key as its trademark. Since Beck's is shipped around the world, the key symbol can translate into any language and be easy to remember.
Brauerei Beck & Co. was locally owned until they were acquired by Interbrew (now Anheuser-Busch InBev) in 2002. The brand is the largest beer export from Germany.
Beck's Beer is a pilsner and pours a golden color with a fluffy white top. The beer has a faint hop nose. The flavor is clean and crisp, with just a slight metalic aftertaste. Pretty typical of continental lagers.
