Double Zero Grand Opening Chinook Mall

We have another fabulous location for a Double Zero restaurant here in our fine city of Calgary, Alberta. They are now in one of our biggest malls, Chinook. A wonderfully lively, open and airy feeling bar (downstairs) and restaurant upstairs.

Here is the downstairs bar area.

Fruh Kolsch

PROST!!! FRUH KOLSCH is now in Canada. This light and I mean light tasting, wonderfully refreshing German beer is now available here in Canada and the launch in our town, was at WURST, a German restaurant and beer hall!!

Fruh Kolsch by Noshing With The Nolands

This beer is clear light yellow with a billowy foam head. It tastes slightly sweet and is crisp and glorious. If you close your eyes you are transcended to the hills of Bavaria, Germany and you can hear the Sound of Music echoing through the hills…..scratch the record!! Sorry I got carried away.

What I did hear when we were at Wurst was the wonderfully lively songs of a Oompah band.

Fruh Kolsch by Noshing With The Nolands

I went to this event with the lovely Courtney, my girlfriend’s daughter. This little gal enjoys her beer, she is usually a Guinness drinker, but loved the lightness of this beer for hot summer days!!

Fruh Kolcsh by Noshing With The Nolands

Wurst is a traditional beer hall downstairs and upstairs more of a restaurant. Downstairs you are seated at long benches and find it easy to join into conversations with people seated around you. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with this lovely couple. Nibbling, sipping and gabbing!! Also in the picture is some of the members of the Oompah Band. Fun times!!
