Foam / Aroma

The initial impression hints at great things to come. A solid head of finely structured foam crowns our 1516 Kellerbier, and a refreshingly fruity aroma invites further exploration.

Flavor / Color

1516 Kellerbier is full-bodied with a pleasant caramel note and a rich amber color. During the extended maturation period, the bottom-fermenting yeast sediments at the bottom of the tank, leaving the beer with a slightly opalescent cloudiness, part of its characteristic appearance. The balanced hop note rounds out the flavor perfectly.

Remarks

1516 Kellerbier was first brewed to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Bavarian Reinheitsgebot (purity law for beer). It has rapidly become an insider tip among beer enthusiasts and is often served with grilled foods, roasts and cheeses.

1516 Kellerbier

Our 1516 Kellerbier is a specialty beer brewed with the rare hop variety Hallertauer Record, a variety now only grown by a single hop farmer in the Hallertau hop cultivation region.
