Ummm, excited would be an understatement.
what is a fastenbier?
2nd picture (label on the back of the can) in the IG post explains it all. It’s a stunning beer, my favorite they make. Which is saying something.
nice that does sound delightful. I will have to grab some to appease my long passed catholic grandmother. She will be pleased with my devotion im sure
It goes on at the start of Lent IIRC.
For those interested in reading more about Fastenbier I discussed it in a past New Beer Sunday thread (see link below). A snippet from that post:
In my opinion all of the flavors and qualities of this beer work so well together in this beer. In music terms this is a masterful symphony!!
P.S. Hopefully these cans will be just as good as the bottles of the past.
Searching now! Not available yet. Hope it arrives soon or will have to buy Korbinian.
Seems like they've renamed this beer too... at least depending on if you're looking at the front vs the back of the can. I guess B. United feels like it's worth the confusion.
You've seen the cans?
From @guinness77 above:
"2nd picture (label on the back of the can) in the IG post explains it all."
Working my brain hard to decipher IG post... Instagram? But I didn't see the Fastenbier cans on their IG (!) page.*
*D'oh! Found it, hit the little carrot arrow on the right side of the glass image, voila! I is a social media nerd.
Just translated the title.

Okay, got it now, thanks. I initially just looked at their instagram page and didn't see anything.
Jus' like me. As I always say to my wife, "We're old."
BTW -- the scroll-thru arrows even work on the link directly in the post above. Modern miracles.
I'll always be partial to the Helles, but Fastenbier is my favorite of their rauchbiers. There is a store by me that still has bottles on the shelf... from 2016. No thanks. Can't wait for fresh cans!
Fastenbier just started popping up around NYC. Release the hounds....
Damn, I’m almost two weeks behind! Just put in my order, hopefully BU didn’t ship it all out.
And back when it was released in bottles or in past years when it was available in kegs it was in summer, way past Lent and months older than I wished it were. I didn't ever track down the Kraeusen but I sure as hell am gonna track down the Fastenbier while it is fresh.
What a beautiful beer! Haven’t had it since the inaugural bottle release a few years ago. Moderate smoke; toasty, delectable malt. Balanced bitterness and dryness. Tried to savor but two cans went down way too fast. Delicious!
Wow, just got this beer in NE Ohio. It’s no wonder why it’s a beer for fasting. Definitely hearty in flavor but still so drinkable. A bit hoppy, too. What a stellar combination of lovely flavors! I’m definitely coming back for more.
Reviewed this one today on NBS. Yesterday was the first time I have seen this beer in the wild. It's labeled as Lentbeer instead of Fastenbier and the ABV is higher at 5.9%. Very good rauchbier and worth seeking out IMO. Shocked to see it on the shelves here in southern Indiana with a 2/27/19 can date.
This smells so damned good. Smoky, baked beans, charcoal, campfire...everything I love about this brewery and this style of beer.
Holy shit, wow. Bready caramel malt upfront that finishes off with that liquid campfire smoke. What a beer!
Cross post from What Beer Are You Drinking Now. This is just as good as I remembered. This is a top 5 beer, ever, for me. I overpaid for a 4-pack (those Manhattan prices though) and I absolutely do not care.
Would you mind sharing with us what you paid? Is it really a "Manhattan" thing vs. a B. United issue?
And you didn't even have to wait in line!
They were selling $6 a can at a shop in the Chelsea section of Manhattan and a buddy picked me up 4 and asked me for $25. I’m sure if I bought a pre-made 4-pack it would probably be cheaper and there’s no slam dunk this will make it to Long Island. The Krausen didn’t.
Haha, it was actually brought to me. Can’t beat that!
The Krausen 4-packs I can get are $16, but this store might not want to carry both at the same time and still have a few Krausens left in the fridge. I guess I'll see in a week or so.
Good luck my friend. The store is Milk and Hops, but I’m assuming you already guessed that, haha
Where at? I never saw the Kräusen cans anywhere, assuming we wouldn't get this one either. I did find the Urbock though this past weekend and picked up a few bottles. I look forward to picking this up though! Appreciate it ahead of time...
The Wine Spot got a case in. It’s moving pretty slowly from what I’ve seen.
I love the Aecht cans!
I wish I could find these out here (SF) and on the regular.
just saw this on Beermenus. 22 dollars a 4 pack. I will bite.
