Rome Center Weekend Trips: 1970/71 - James F Palka

February 11-16, 1971 / Diessen trip: Later that day, some of us lunched at Andechs, an ancient monastery that had been converted into a beer hall. Along with such delicacies as gourmet onions, zuppe mit ei (soup with egg), and tatár, (a mound of raw ground beef that was ultimately a “parasite patty”), more tankards of beer were ordered and their contents, summarily disposed of. If there was nothing else to be learned from this trip, I realized that as a beer drinker, I was a rank amateur.
