The Beers

Draft…

Perfect balance of a light taste of hops and a strong note of malt 6.0%

A traditional weissbier from one of Germany’s oldest breweries. Hacker-Pschorr Weisse is a velvety banana-tinged weissbier  – 5.5%

An easy drinking, Dark Munich lager with a malty, chocolaty flavour. Original Münchner Dunkel is actually the “original” Munich beer – 5.0%

An unfiltered lager from one of Germany’s oldest breweries, Hacker-Pschorr Anno 1417 has fruity notes but a clean helles finish – 5.5%

The Bottles…

Ayinger Celebrator 

Bottom-fermented, dark doppelbock beer
Alcohol content: 6.7%

A beer that has a dominant malty taste. This beer’s origins in a monk’s recipe are reflected in its heartiness. The Pope of Beers, Conrad Seidl, describes it as: “Almost black with a very slight red tone, a sensational, festive foam and truly extraordinary fragrance that at first summons up visions of greaves lard. The first taste is of mild fullness with an accompanying coffee tone, which becomes more dominant with the aftertaste. There is very little of the sweetness that is frequently to be tasted with doppelbock beer.” The Ayinger Celebrator has been ranked among the best beers of the world by the Chicago Testing Institute several times and has won numerous medals.


Paulaner Salvator

The brewing history of Palaner begins with this beer. And the history of strong beer in Bavaria – it was the Paulaner monks who invented this bottom-fermenting double bock. We have been brewing the Salvator for over 375 years – always according to the original recipe, which has been continuously refined over the years. The head is the colour of caramel and the beer is chestnut brown, combined with a seductive flavour of chocolate to give a pleasing intensity on the palate. Along with this comes the finest Munich malt, rounded off by a light note of hops in the background. Often imitated but never duplicated: The father of all double bock beers, whose names always end in “-ator”!
