Sunday, February 24: Omaha-Atlanta-Zürich

This trip to the Bodensee starts today, but first, a quick note about last night: The Crescent Moon in Omaha hosted their Extreme Beer Fest. There were some 90 strong (minimum 7% abv) beers available, and the 300-strong sold-out crowd had a great time. Check out the Nebraska Beer Blog for Nate's excellent review of the festivities.



Our flight left Omaha about a half-hour late, but we had several hours to kill in Atlanta, so it wasn't a problem. The bar in the food court in Concourse E had a local beer on tap, Sweetwater Pale Ale, and we had a couple. But only a couple; they were six bucks a pint, and with taxes and the already-included gratuity, it came to $7.32 a pop.



This flying corncob is something I would have expected to see in Nebraska, not here in Atlanta.

The flight to Zürich was long and uneventful. I got a few hours' sleep on the plane, after washing down my dinner with a complimentary can of Heineken, and we touched down pretty much on time.



Tomorrow: Hirsch-Brauerei Honer in Wurmlingen.
