So we’ve been to a football game in the BayArena in Leverkusen when we decided on our way back to make a stop in this bottle shop. It is only around 4 minutes away from the ground and around three minutes from the speed way. It is a normal German bottle shop which comes very tidy, unspectacular and big. But the selection of beer is -at least when you are from another part of the county- really nice and really local. Found some nice Kölschs, also light and alc-free, some local Landbiere I’ve never seen before, some spectacular local beers (like Gaffels Sonnenhopfen) etc. The best is a little stand where you can get lots of meads, ciders and beers from abroad. This was so surprising and really nice. Of course I’d never would go to this bottle shop again because it is just too far away from my home town, but if you happen to be there it is a hot spot to get some nice beers. Prices are around average (one bottle for 0,80 to 3,50 €).
