Looks like Hamburg soon will be without a premier league soccer team as the HSV is teetering on the edge of the 2. Bundesliga. Unlike some places teams have to perform to stay in the top league which unfortunately the HSV has not been with its 7 wins – 6 ties -18 losses record.
Cranky will take solace in the fact that there is at least a premier local pale ale. Naturally brewed under the German Reinheitsgebot but intriguingly using Cascade hops.
Brewing styles are coming full circle from the Old World to the New World and back again.
