Zwickelbier4.5% ABV 25 IBU
Zwickelbier, a rarely seen German lager style, gets it name from the sampling valve on a fermentation tank (“Zwickel” in German). It is unfiltered, relatively low in alcohol, and served very soon after fermentation is complete. For this reason, Zwickelbiers usually don’t make it very far from the brewery where they are produced. Our version is brewed with 100% German Pils and Vienna malts and Czech Saaz hops. A cold fermentation with a classic Bavarian lager yeast lets the pure flavors of the malt and hops shine through. Get out your biggest beer stein for this one!
