BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Professor Fritz Briem
Germany

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Already in the 1600s the Berliner Weisse Style Beer was mentioned in documents by the French reformers "Huguenots" as they crossed Berlin on their way to Flanders. In 1809, the Emperor Napoleon and his troops celebrated their Prussian victory with it.

This Berliner Weisse Style Beer is brewed with traditional mash hoping [sic] and without wort boiling. This along with a traditional strain of lactic acid bacteria provide a fruity and dry but palateful character. A character that Napoleon and his troops characterized as "lively" and "elegant".

Historic Signature Series:

Forgotten styles brewed according to their historic recipes by Dr. Fritz Briem, of the Doemens Institute.
