Join Us For Weisser Spargel
Once again this spring, we welcome back the shining star of our spring menu, Weisser Spargel – White Asparagus. This extravagantly prepared menu item is served many different ways, from a phenomenal soup to the traditional König Ludwig Schnitzel. We have a plethora of dishes on which to feature our spring star.
And a special thank you to all who participated in the special Stein Club dinner last week to welcome The Queen of Vegetables. We had a great crowd with a lot of smiling faces, and full stomachs!
We hope to see you soon enjoying the Weisser Spargel!

The Story of the White Asparagus
When you live in Germany, you will see people from the cities making pilgrimages into the countryside each spring to buy the Queen of Vegetables from the farmers right off the field. In addition, they go out to eat the fresh white asparagus in the village Gasthäuser. The highlight of the season for many small villages is the annual “Spargelfest,” complete only with a large tent, where guests enjoy various different asparagus dishes, lots of Bier and a big formal evening dance to crown the “Spargel Königin,” the beautiful Queen of Asparagus for the village. People consider Asparagus a delicacy since Roman times.
Traditionally, Spargel is harvested from Easter until St. Johannis Day, June 24. To harvest after this date kills the roots, as the plant cannot leaf out properly to make it through the heat of summer and to gain the strength for the next season. The old farmers say, “When the cherries get red, leave the asparagus in its bed” – a farmer who maintains the field of asparagus can harvest for about ten to twelve years.
The Queen of Vegetables is here!

Greetings Stein Club Members!
Welcome to May!!
I hope you were able to be part of our special dinner last week that kicked off the White Asparagus season. Chef Seth and his team did their usual outstanding job in preparing a delicious feast for us. White asparagus soup, white asparagus spears wrapped in ham, white asparagus with schnitzel and new potatoes and the awesome Erdbeerkuchen for dessert. (If you haven’t tried that before, do yourself a favor and order it the next time you are in!)
Next Wednesday, May 10th, is our Stein Club dinner. We’ll be enjoying the popular Aschaffenburger Schlachtefest, affectionately known as German lasagna!
Layers of delicious smoked cured meats, sausage and pork chops with sauerkraut, mashed potatoes and two biers. We will offer the Schlenkerla Helles or the Hofbrau Original or the Hofbrau Dunkel as your choices. You don’t want to miss this one! As always, the dinner is not just for Stein Club members but is open to all. The cost is $29.95 for non-Stein Club members, $24.95 for members. Please RSVP by Friday, May 5th, so we can be sure we have enough food for everyone.We are going to join Heather and Juergen to their visit to the Weltenburger Kloster on May 24 at 7pm in the Biergarten. Julie arranged a tour that took them to places most visitors will not be able to see and we will have the Weltenburger Bockbier Schnitzel, the Schnitzel with a Pretzelcrust on a Weltenburger Barock Dunkel Caraway sauce and fried onion-rings, same price as above. We will drink the Weltenburger Kloster “Anno 1050” Maerzen followed by their Gold Medal Winner “Barock Dunkel” looking at pictures and listening to the story.
Finally, our next Stein Club meeting is Wednesday, June 14th at 7 pm in the Biergarten. Our guest will be Kyle Collins who represents the Leibinger brewery: Enjoy Seeweisse, Zeppelin Kellerbier and the two Seeradler. Come out and join us for a great time!
