2906 – Christopher Columbus

Asked what was the most important event in 1492, people in Salzburg would smilingly say “The founding of Stiegl Brewery”. And Stiegl is not only one of the few surviving old breweries in Austria, they are also one of the most successful. It may help to be located right across the border from Bavaria 😀

The Song of the Day is “Christopher Columbus” by Benny Goodman. Hear it on YouTube.
