A Bayerische bimble (part 3)

Posted 01-01-2015 at 16:15 by DaveinGermany

Saturday morning,

a tad grey but some fresh snow on the ground, another good day for heading out. Tegernsee Bräustüberl, in the village & alongside the lake of the same name was the destination of choice, the intention to get there for dinnertime & enjoy some traditional munchies & of course sample the local brew, well it'd be rude not to wouldn't it?

The M.i.L, was made up, she'd not been down this way for nigh on 20 years, added to the fact she doesn't get out as much nowadays (well not to distant destinations anyway), I'd attained the status of "nice boy" by now & the snorts of flame & billows of smoke had markedly reduced (so I stowed the portable extinguisher ). After scraping the snow & ice from the jallopy & letting the motor run to warm the old girl up (M.i.L & car) everyone piled in & we set forth.

After once again driving through some lovely scenery & villages again, we got to Tegernsee about 11.45, time to have a little amble along the lakeside with the Hound afore going for some dins. Happysnapville, so many subjects to cover, the main thing being the Bayerische Voralpen (that just means big hills ) which were duly snapped, all this fresh air gives a growing lad a right proper thirst & an appetite so we headed for the "Bräustüberl" to remedy that.

As with Andechs the place was proper busy & like Andechs we managed to get comfortable at a table then proceeded to sample the wares on offer, Marion did the Obazda (a ball of mixed cream cheeses, spiced & herbed with dark bread) & Kalbsrahmbraten (a creamed veal gulasch with assorted veggies) the M.i.L had a portion of Bierbratl (Bier sossys with spuds) & yours truly troughed his way through a plate of Münchener tellerfleisch (a mungous big lump of stewed Beef with Tattie salad veggits & grated radish) & all washed down with a pot of "Tegernseer Helles" a marvellous local brew, which, was most definitely required after I wolfed down a gert big forkfull of grated radish after assuming it to be grated cheese! When the face had finished melting & the back of the nose finished stinging & I could breathe quite normally again after chugging half me bevvy, I managed to wheeze a comment along the lines of "Uuhmm, that was quite nice if a little unexpected!" Eeh how they chuckled.

Mirth & merriment subsided, the bill paid, it was back outside for another amble along the lake, through the village & with an eventual stop at the souvenir shop .... as you do. Being still earlyish there was time for some further roving & why not .... to the Williamsmobile! All aboard & lookout Bad Tölz, you're next!

Bad Tölz, another picturesque town laying along the bank of the river Isar. It was also the backdrop for a German detective/police series "Der Bulle von Tolz" there was even a museum to the series in the town but hey, my thirst for knowledge doesn't really go that far so we gave that 'un a miss. Along the main street in the pedestrian zone the remnants of the Christmas market (mainly the food & drink stalls) were still doing a brisk trade from the gullible (yep, us included) we purchased an alcohol free warm winter punch, it was atrocious. I'd of been better off warming & sucking a lemon, even the M.i.L agreed on that one. When asked if they had any sugar we were informed that no they didn't have any & that was the sweet one (no wonder the krautlings are so po faced ) I still shudder now thinking about it, ah well, we live & learn. So, that was bad Tölz for you, churches, shops, crimbo market & sour punch! Time to move out for the next stop on our hiatus.

Aying, Aying, any ol Aying! As you may of guessed we stopped at a little village about 25km South,South,East of Münich called Aying, the heart of the village being the private brewery, the "Bräustüberl", the hotel & the Church. As it was near on teatime ..... you can guess what happened next can't you? Aye, we succumbed to the dainties on offer & as it'd be our last night there, well, why not indeed, for on the morrow we'd be heading back North, home & the daily drudge, so one last splash afore we go. (I know, I know, it's a poor excuse even by my standards ) Perusing the menus it highlighted the fact that at 17.30 every evening they tap a "Holzfaß" of Lager Hell .... Now with a name like that you've got to stay on & give it a taste, so we did, then again & one more to be sure, then of course you need to make doubly sure .... And as we're here let's grab some scoff! Yes. yes, the glass appears quite empty, a refill, er yes please, that'd be nice.

By this point, the keys had long been handed over to the Witchitty one, she had her broomstick licence in her bag so that'd do for getting us home, the M.i.L was happily imbibing a glass or several, little contented clouds of steam puffing out instead of smoke, happy days. Eventually the barrel got emptied, I've no idea how they managed that mind, must've been a leaky barrel And after supping such nectar the other beers paled in comparison so it was time for home.

Once back, it was out of the going out clobber & into your mongin' kit, sat round in the front room & crack open a couple of bottles of this inferior stuff, beggars can't be choosers as they say & the M.i.L even suggested some wee snifters to finish a great day & an even better evening. It appears the spirit of St.George won out in the end sans armour & lance. After the bonhomie of the last few days, the leaving on the morrow would actually be quite melancholy, but with the promise of a return at some point within the coming year the wistfulness was somewhat tempered.

And that folks, is your lot. I hope you've enjoyed the road trip as much as we did, unfortunately you couldn't quaff & scoff along with us but until you can e-mail a pint or a plateful of nosh, well .... you'll sadly have to go without, unless you pay us a visit over here in Germingland!

So until that day, look after yourselves & thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings .....
