Beer of the Week: Ettaler Klosterbrauerei Curator

It’s smooth, dark and — careful! — packs a punch.

WTOP’s Brennan Haselton is joined by Neighborhood Restaurant Group Beer Director and James Beard Award nominee Greg Engert to talk about Ettaler Klosterbrauerei Curator Doppelbock for the latest edition of WTOP’s Beer of the Week.

Quick facts:

  • Brewery: Ettaler Klosterbrauerei, Ettal, Bavaria, Germany
  • Description: This smooth, malty Dopplebock (a strong, dark lager) is clean and crisp on the palate with hints of fig, raisin and cherry.
  • ABV: 9%
  • Greg’s pairing suggestions: Panzanella salad; steak; rosemary lamp chops; herb-crusted pork roast.
