New Beers!


Weltenburger is the oldest monastery brewery in the world, established in 1050. Seven beers are produced in Weltenburg in accordance with the traditional art of brewing by an experienced master brewer who keeps most strictly to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516. The special quality of the Weltenburg Monastery beers is guaranteed by the low content of nitrates in the brewery water and the regular - up to three months long - storage in stone cellars forty meters below the ground.

Kloster Asam Bock

A dark strong beer - full bodied in taste. Truly unique flavor following the tradition of Bavarian style strong bock beers. Named after the mischevious designer of the brewery.

Kloster Barock Dunkel

The oldest dark beer in the world - a true taste experience; full-bodied, malty and aromatic, smooth and bitter, creamy and extraordinarily dark. Intense taste and flavor, strong and engaging. This beer is based on the elegance of the Baroque Era. It belongs to the class of very best beers based on its ancient traditional and monasterial art of brewing.

Kloster Andechs

The monastery brewery Kloster Andechs combines the centuries-old Benedictine tradition of brewing (since 1455) with modern brewing technology to produce premium beers using only the highest quality Bavarian ingredients.

Weissbier Helles

This beer boasts distinctive fruit flavors such as banana and honeydew melon followed by cloves. Very tangy and refreshing, the Andechs Weissbier Hell has soft body. The finish reveals a balance of slight honey sweetness and an elegant acidity with a subtle hop bitterness that quickly form a harmonious after-taste.

Doppelbock Dunkel

Soft, toasty and a touch of dried fruit accompany a pronounced caramel flavor in Doppelbock Dunkel. Full bodied and velvety, rich with a malty aroma, this beer enjoys a recognizable sweetness, garnished by roasted cocoa notes and a slight hop bitterness.

Stiegl Radler

Stiegl Radler is half Stiegl Goldbräu and half high quality soda with all-natural flavours. Low in calories and with a low alcohol content they make ideal thirst quenchers. The Grapefruit has only 125 calories per 500ml. A perfect summer and lunchtime beer at 2.5% abv. If you have tried and liked Schöfferhofer Grapefruit you will love this Radler.
