The extremely successfully launched "Culinary Beer Hike" in Enkenbach-Alsenborn will start its second round on Sat, 26 May from 11 am and Sun, 27 May from 10 am.  The hiking route stretches for about 8 km through a beautiful landscape. Renowned breweries will serve you their hops and wheat specialties at the culinary restaurants. The brewing companies Karlsberg, Bischoff, Park & ellheimer, Lausitzer Porter and Eichbaum will be among others.  You will be surprised what other specialties come from the respective breweries.  The culinary food is also based on the theme of "beer". The participating caterers serve roast pork with bread dumpling in beer sauce, Morlautrer Kringel, tasty Burgervariationen and the popular pulled pork from Germany's biggest barbecue smoker. Sweet temptations will complete the tasty offer.  At each station, you get the tasting glass filled with beers from the participating breweries as often as you like for € 2.00 per filling and thus save money. In addition, the beer glass with practical tag makes a great souvenir and you have the opportunity to participate in a raffle in which there are 5 boxes of beer to win.  A beer pass including a beer glass is available at a price of € 8 at the starting point. Visitors who are not interested in the beer pass are asked to purchase a hiking ticket at the price of € 3.  In addition to food and beverages, there will also be a musical program.   Enkenbach Rathaus  Hauptstrasse 18
