Returnˆ To Top'


This is a top fermenting style of brew. It is also fermented at the higher temperatures, usually just under normal room temperature. Because of these higher temperatures, it ferments much more quickly -- sometimes as short as 3-4 days. They generally have what is referred to as a "fruity" accent. They should be served at moderate temperatures in order to taste the full body of the ale.

Barley Wine
This is the English term for a very strong ale. Although Barley Wine tastes as strong as wine, it is not a wine. To obtain its high alcohol content, British brewers left the brew in the casks to mature for several months. Periodically, they would roll the casks to shake up the beer and give the yeast a chance to convert more carbohydrates to alcohol while deepening the flavor.

is a style of ale which provides a strong hops taste to the palate. In color, they normally range from gold to a coppery red. Originally, every brewery in England generally had two ales, a bitter and a mild. Compared to the mild, bitters were both dryer and hoppier. Bitters are classified into 3 categories, "Ordinary, Best, or Extra Special." The main difference is that the latter two are considerably stronger flavored in their nature.

is usually a very strong beer that is normally served seasonally from January to May. Bock beers are bottom fermented, thus they are a lager type of beer. They come in a variety of different styles, ranging from the pale, Helles Bock, to the traditional dark colored Dunkels Bock. Bocks usually balance a definite malt flavor with a hops dryness in the finish. "Double Bocks" are even stronger than single Bocks and vary in taste from well balanced to that of an overwhelming malt taste. The term Bock literally means goat in German. The most accepted theory is that the word "Bock" is a derivation from the word "Einbeck." Einbeck is the name of the town where the Bock style of beer is presumed to have originated.

is a gold colored lager beer that is dryer than a Munich style lager. It tastes less of hops than a Pilsner, and is stronger flavored than either one. It was originally produced in Dortmund and is sometimes known simply as "Dort".

is a German word meaning yeast. It indicates that this is a sediment brewed, or lager, style of beer
Lager Lager is the general term for a bottom fermenting beer. Lagers are fermented at cold temperatures for up to 2 weeks and then are "lagered"  for up to 3 months at temperatures approaching freezing. The word "lager" comes from the German word meaning "to store."

Light Beer
This is an American term for a low calorie beer. Generally, this is very watered down version of a Pilsner, with little to no taste, and is of a light yellow color.

Malt Liquor
is an American term for a fairly strong lager. They are generally pale, golden colored, and have a light to medium body. Usually, they are cheaply made and are one of the most popular means for getting quickly and cheaply drunk. Also, Malt Liquor is neither malt tasting nor a liquor.

The traditional Marzen style beer is amber red, malty, and has a medium to strong alcoholic content. The maltiness is most present in the bouquet. The palate is malty too, but not overpoweringly so. Marzenbeer gets its name from the time when brewers brewed a large batch of beer in March to last through the summer. Then they would finish the beer in September or October. Today, it is the traditional beer of the Munich Oktoberfest and is still the traditional drink in September and October.

Munich Helles/Dunkel
The Munich Helles (light) is a golden colored pale lager beer. It is malt accented and is slightly less hoppy than a pilsner. The Munich Dunkel (dark) is a malty, dark lager beer.

Pale Ale
A copper colored style of ale from England. It has a clean and complex palate, with a yeasty fruitiness and a bit of malt character. Its finish is dry and hops tasting.

Pilsner Traditionally,
The palate is soft while the finish is dry and hoppy. The Pilsner style of beer was founded in 1842 in the Bohemian brew town of Pilsen. It quickly won renown and was imitated throughout the world. This style is especially popular in Germany, where a slightly hoppier version is produced. In America, the term Pilsner is falsely used to denote any golden colored beer. While the watered down mass produced version is loosely based on the classic Pilsner, it is not a Pilsner. To taste the true Pilsner from the brewery that brews it properly, order one on your next trip to either Austria or Germany. It is a very tasty, great beer.

A dark, almost black, top-fermented brew with a very roast flavored characteristic. The most widely known type of stout is the Irish stout. It is dryer and more intense flavored than its English counterpart, which is known for its sweetness..

The latter three are German words meaning "white" or wheat beers. The tastes of this style will vary tremendously. Wheat beers use at least 40% malted wheat in the grist and use top fermenting yeasts. They often show spicy, tart like, or fruitlike characteristics in their taste. It is fashionable to add a slice of lemon to them. Oftentimes, brewers add a second dose of yeast to the bottle to induce a secondary fermentation. They are then called Hefe-Weizens.

2. A selection of beers you could serve at your own private Oktoberfest party

Ayinger Oktober Fest-Maerzen
This small brewery near the Alps has been family-owned and operated since 1878. Their Maerzen is a bit lighter than other traditinal Oktoberfest brews. The Maerzen beer was and is brewed in March to be ready for the September and October festivities.
The Aying ( pronounced eye-ing) brewery is located only 15 miles away from Munich. Founded in 1878 it has maintained its excellence being named "One of the Top Ten Breweries in the World" for many years in the prestigious World Beer Championships. Ayinger beers are characterized by their delicious balanced maltiness. Unlike the mass-market brewers, Ayinger maintains its own malting and even grows a significant portion of the barley malt themselves.


Bitburger Premium Pils. Brewed with the very best ingredients. Bitburger guarantees complete enjoyment in premium quality. Bitburger Premium Pils - full-bodied and light - draws on nearly 200 years' experience and is, of course, brewed according to the German Purity Law. The popular, dry-finished, hoppy taste has made Bitburger Premium Pils Germany's no. 1 draught beer.

Bitburger Drive Alkoholfrei
Bitburger Drive is pure refreshment. The alcohol is carefully removed, but only once the beer has fully matured. While reducing the calories, this locks in the famous Bitburger taste. Whereas the fermentation process is stopped prematurely in most other beers, Bitburger Drive can therefore be tapped straight from the keg. And because it is fully fermented, there's no need for it to be pasteurized, leaving it tasting especially fresh.

Bitburger Light Reduced Calorie
Enjoy Bitburger Light Reduced Calorie, the lager brewed like a pilsner. Our light is refreshing, light and full of flavor. And it has 40% less alcohol and fewer calories than Bitburger Premium Pils.

Dinkel Acker
Dinkel Acker Brauerei CD Pils. Pale gold hue. Medium-bodied. Very crisp aromas of zesty hops and pale malt. Crisply textured, with dry pale malt flavors through a clean, tangy hop-accented finish.

3. Erdinger Weissbier "Crystal Clear"
The famous Bavarian specialty. Erdinger Weissbier 'crystal clear' is particularly welcome as a tasty thirst-quencher for hot summer days.

Erdinger Weissbier Pikantus
Bavaria's strong specialty. For some people, Erdinger Weissbier Pikantus 'dark bock beer' is a delicacy to be enjoyed in the colder months of the year. For lovers of strong beer, however, the season for Pikantus lasts a full twelve months. At 7.3% alcohol, this specialty wheat beer has a considerably higher alcohol content than other varieties produced by Erdinger Weissbräu. The dark bock beer owes its sharp and full flavor to the use of selected dark wheat and barley malts and a significantly longer maturing process.
In contrast to many bock beers, Erdinger Weissbier Pikantus 'dark bock beer' does not taste too sweet. Despite its higher alcohol content, Erdinger's master brewers have succeeded in retaining the smooth Pikantus flavor. The wheat beer for lovers of strong beer

Erdinger Weissbier
Erdinger Weissbier 'with fine yeast' is not only the undisputed classic in the Erdinger product range, it is also quite simply the wheat beer par excellence. It is brewed using fine yeast according to a traditional recipe and, of course, in strict accordance with the Bavarian Purity Law. Even today, the beer is still bottle-fermented in the traditional way; it takes three to four weeks for Erdinger Weissbier 'with fine yeast' to mature. Only the finest ingredients are used in its production. Years of experience and constant quality checks guarantee the beer's unmistakable flavor.

Erdinger Weissbier Dark
A wheat beer from the good old days. Erdinger Weissbier 'dark' is a rich and smooth wheat beer specialty from Erdinger Weissbräu. It owes its full-bodied flavor to the fine hops and dark malt used in its production. The dark beer specialty is brewed according to an age-old recipe. Its spicy flavor also results from the increased proportion (about 13%) of original wort. Nonetheless, at 5.6%, it doesn't contain much more alcohol than Erdinger Weissbier 'with fine yeast'.
Like all Erdinger wheat beers, this dark variety also acquires its typical flavor from maturing in the bottle. Years of brewing experience coupled with state-of-the-art technology guarantee its excellent quality.

All of Franziskaner's weiss beer products - Hefe-Weisse Hell and Hefe-Weisse Dunkel - are top-fermentation beers noted for their agreeable carbonation levels and zesty wheat flavor. The consistently high quality of its products makes Franziskaner weiss beers a refreshing taste sensation of a special sort. All Franziskaner weiss beers are brewed in strict adherence to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516.

Hacker Pschorr Weisse
Hacker-Pschorr Weisse is the company's flagship style, catering to young adults in the U.S. who seek out authentic experiences and distinctive tastes. Hacker-Pschorr Weisse is a centuries-old German wheat beer from Bavaria that offers a refreshing taste that is après anything. Wheat beer was originated in the German state of Bavaria in the 15th century. In Germany, it is typically called Weisse beer meaning white or Weizen meaning wheat. Hacker-Pschorr Weisse has a cloudy appearance, characteristic of wheat beer. The cloudy appearance is due to yeast that is retained in the beer. A centrifuge process is used with traditional wheat beers to retain the yeast instead of the typical filtering process used with beers that are clear in appearance. The result is a taste that is authentic and perfect all year-round

Hacker Pschorr Edelhell
In Bavaria, where beer is an art form to some and a religion to the rest, Hacker-Pschorr Munich Edelhell is recognized as the benchmark of the lager style. The Hacker-Pschorr Brewery is known as Bavaria's Heaven &endash; "Himmel der Bayern." Hacker-Pschorr's Munich Edelhell represents the real thing from one of the oldest breweries in Munich.

Koestritzer Schwarzbier (Black Beer)
Koestritzer Schwarzbier is a black beer with a long tradition. The use of specially enhanced malted barely causes the unique color and and its crisp aromas of zesty hops and pale malt.

As a sister to Hacker-Pschorr, Paulaner is one of the most popular beers at the yearly Oktoberfest. Its name stems from the Paulaner monks who brewed this beer first in 1627. During the Lenten period (40 days before Easter) abstinence, which only allowed for bread and water, the monks reasoned that beer could be drunk as "liquid bread" not violating their fasting promise. Their innovation soon entered sites outside the monastery permitting enjoyment for ordinary people.
For U.S. Americans culture is always "go-go-go", Paulaner can bring a little "Gemütlichkeit" (coziness) into everyday's hectic. You would not want to consume it on the run, but rather invite family and friends for a pleasant get-together to enjoy Paulaner's rich and full taste. Its exceptional qualities have also been noticed by the Beverage Testing Institute.

Paulaner Hefe-Weizen
Paulaner Hefe-Weizen is the company's flagship style and brings the friendly, relaxed atmosphere of Munich's beer gardens to America. It is a classic Bavarian wheat beer. "Hefe" in German translates to yeast and "Weizen" (pronounced Vi-Zen) translates to wheat. Yeast retained in the beer is responsible for the cloudy appearance of Paulaner Hefe-Weizen. A centrifuge process is used with traditional wheat beers to retain the yeast instead of the typical filtering process used with beers that are clear in appearance. Paulaner Hefe-Weizen contains 60% malted wheat and 40% malted barley.

Paulaner Oktoberfest-Märzen
was originally a seasonal brew, however, is now brewed and enjoyed all year long. With its caramelized, barely malty nose, the rich, full taste with a creamy and full finish makes the Paulaner Oktoberfest a very popular beer.

Paulaner's Premium Pils
is brewed with two types of hops &endash; bitter substance and aroma. The bitter substance are always added first in the brewing process so they are fully absorbed with the aroma hops added towards the end to maintain aroma in the beer. Paulaner's Premium Pils uses Hallertau Magnum as its bitter hop and aroma hops &endash; Hallertau Tradition and Hallertau Spalter Select. Hallertau is a hops growing region in Bavaria.

Paulaner Salvator
The beer was named Salvator, in honor of Our Savior, and it became a tradition. Today, Paulaner Salvator is the benchmark for double bock brewing. It is still referred to, among beer aficionados as, "Liquid Bread."
Its smoky and sweet, malty nose with accents of Hallertau hops and a very rich, full and hearty flavor reminds of a hint of chocolate.

Pinkus -- Organic Muenster Alt
The Pinkus-Muller brewery traces its origins to the family's arrival in the Northern Germany town of Munster in 1816 where they started a brewery. Since they arrived there have been 150 breweries in Munster. Only Pinkus remained. Organic Muenster Alt is an excellent beer with an herbaceous aroma, delicate fruit-acid palate and a long dry finish. Pinkus is the world's first brewery to brew with only organically grown barley malt and whole hop blossoms.

Schneider Weisse
The original liquid amber. With its amber-mahogany coloring and streaked with fine top-fermented yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, an aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalizes the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a sour impression.

Schneider Aventinus
Bavaria from its strongest side. Dark ruby, glistening mysteriously, streaked with fine, top-fermented yeast, this beer has a compact, stable and long-lasting head. It has an intensive, typically top-fermented clove-like aroma. The palate experiences a gentle touch, on the tongue it is very full-bodied, compact and yet fresh with a hint of caramel. It finishes with a light and delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a strong, smoothly rounded, sour impression.

St. Pauli Girl Lager
If you like a Girl that has a deep golden color, distinctive full-bodied taste and "hoppy" aroma, then the Lager is for you. Two row spring barley from the south of England, a special strain of yeast, ice-age glacier water from the "Rotenburger Rinne," plus hops from the famous "Hallertau Hop Gardens" in southern Germany are the ingredients that give St. Pauli Girl Lager its unsurpassed quality and taste.

St. Pauli Girl Special Dark
St. Pauli Girl Special Dark is a remarkably smooth beer with a light hop character and rich malty taste. Using the same high-quality ingredients in the Lager, the malt in St. Pauli Girl Special Dark is slowly roasted using a centuries-old recipe. This gives St. Pauli Girl Special Dark unparallel taste and a uniquely vibrant color.

Weihenstephan Hefeweissbier
Nothing refreshes you more than this naturally cloudy wheat beer with its wonderful yeasty fragrance and taste. Goes well with dishes that do not have too intensive a flavor, especially that Bavarian specialty "Weisswurst' or white sausage.

Weihenstephan Hefeweizen-Dark
Supple, malty and mellow. Its harmonious flavor is the great strength of our dark wheat beer. Not only as a good combination with hearty dishes.

Weihenstephan Pilsner
Slightly bitter, mild, with a fragrance of hops - our pilsner is a cut above the ordinary. A beer with character.

Weihenstephan Korbinian
Doppelbock beer that has what it takes. Not just for lovers of strong beer. With a malty aroma and great taste, our Korbinian is a true beer specialty. It goes well with smoked meat and fish as well as wild roasts and fowl.
