If you read the post Berkley made about all of our flight difficulties then you will realize that this is our one and only German meal. And wow this was spectacular, a bratwurst served to us at Shumacher (a traditional German beer hall) near the Düsseldorf train station that was crisp on the outside and bursting with flavor. The sauerkraut was nice and tart and they balanced that out with buttery mashed potatoes and thin light gravy. We also drank two each of their in house lager. How wonderful it is to be out of the United States where everyone thinks that hops are king and they need to hop the crap out of their beer. This lagger was golden, crisp and perfect for a warm German day.
