Andechs and Weltenburger are back!
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.
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.
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.
This dark Weissbier retains its aromatic character thanks to the select choice of Hallertau aroma hops and highest quality Bavarian wheat and dark barley malts.
Its characteristic, distinctive maroon colour is a feast for the eyes. Then there’s the opalescence and fine structure of the yeast turbidity. The perfect complement is provided by the very creamy, fine pored head. This dark Weissbier from the Holy Mountain will delight connoisseurs with a harmonious interplay of fruity odours, above all ripe bananas and pineapple, with undertones of caramel and cocoa.
Its head is firm and fine pored. Its aroma is pure and fresh from the cellar, with soft malty accents imbued with floral hoppiness. Its light and soft body leaves a pleasant, tangy taste in the mouth. The mild sweetness marries well with the velvety bitterness of the hops. It concludes on a rounded, harmonious note.
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.
