It sure seems like Nick Greiner and Tobias Hahn were fated to open this Teutonic brewery. Hahn is from a small German village, Greiner is married to a German, both have children attending the same German language school, both put their careers on hold for those kids, both love beer and soccer. And thus, Rosenstadt, which took its name from signs posted to welcome Bayern Munich to the Rose City back in 2014. Rosenstadt has only been in business only a few months and already has 50 live accounts around town, an impressive feat for a two-man operation without prior brewery experience or connections. You'll understand why when you taste the minerally Kölsch, which has become my go-to dinner beer when I see it on tap, or the balanced and very traditional altbier. The long-range goal is a traditional biergarten with pretzels and huge wood tables, on a plot of land shaded by big trees. Here's hoping they realize that dream.

Drink This: Look for that Kölsch on tap at a restaurant. I ordered back-to-back pints at Pizzeria Otto on Northeast Sandy Boulevard, something I very rarely do.
