West Coast, USA
In an industrial section of Berkeley, just blocks off the roaring 10 lanes of Highway 80, a small brewery is producing a highly unusual beer.
All the remarkable characteristics of this beer — its creamy head, its sweet floral nose, light body, and even its name, Trumer Pils — are the same as those of a beer that residents of Salzburg, Austria, have been enjoying for hundreds of years. The only difference is that this beer happens to be made in Berkeley. Think of it as an imported beer that’s not imported.
