Khan Bräu, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

P1050050Who would have thought that Leibspeise could find German food and beer in such a remote country like Mongolia? In fact, Klaus Bader and his Mongolian business partner were looking for a business idea in Mongolia while studying international marketing in Germany. After doing some research in Mongolia both were really disappointed by the quality and taste of local beers and decided to brew their own. This was the start of Khan Bräu in 1996 which then was the preferred beer of most foreigners, but now is very popular with locals as well.

BrauhausAs quality and taste of their beer was key to the team, they brought in a brewer from Germany who created their brew (pilsner and a dark) and trained the locals how to brew it. Apparently they bought all brewing machinery in Bavaria, put it on a train and send it all the way to Mongolia on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Since then the team has built a Brauhaus in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia’s capital, and distribute their brew to another 10 restaurants and pubs in town.

As German beer goes well with German food, they also make delicious German bread and meat products (see picture). When you are in Ulaanbaatar, make sure to visit the Brauhaus while they do their “Bierboerse” (3 times a week). Like stocks on Wall Street you pay different prices for a Khan beer. It’s always packed, just make sure to order while the beer price is low.

Leibspeise is impressed by this passion for German beer and also enjoyed the “lecker Wurstplatte und Broetchen”.

Here’s also a funny ad for Khan Bräu that uses a typical Mongolian way of singing called throat singing, actually fairly similar to burping…

Bavarian Smallgoods & Butchery, Sydney, Australia

lecker-wurstwaren“Bratwurst” – that’s what springs first to mind when thinking about German food. Indeed Ricky, the founder and butcher of Bavarian Smallgoods & Butchery in Ermington, Sydney, had his own Bratwurst experience when he came to Australia in 1984. Being a butcher by trade, he was keen to test all sorts of meat and sausages at his first Aussie BBQ. Unfortunately, Ricky’s first Aussie BBQ sausage didn’t go down too well and maybe this was the reason why he started his own butcher business shortly after this incident.

Rickys MeisterbriefRicky is very proud of what he does and how he does it. All of the 100 or so meat products in his butchery are made by Ricky based on his own recipes from years of butcher experience back in Germany. He buys all meat in Australia, but spices, sausage casings and also the wood chips for smoking are from Germany. When entering his smallgoods and butchery business in Ermington you are surrounded by all the best smells of a traditional German butcher. You literally smell what you will buy.

Try the Mettwurst, Teewurst, smoked Blackforest Ham and Leibspeise’s favourite: the little Nürnberger sausages. A small range of gourmet condiments and other treats add to the fabulous range of meats. Leibspeise can’t resist telling all Aussies that, yes, you can brew good beer, but the sausages are no way near Ricky’s six varieties of Bratwurst (Nürnberger, German, Gypsy, Herb & Garlic, Kalbsbratwurst, Thüringer).
