When transporting beer it is important to protect it as much as possible from exposure to sunshine. UV radiation accelerates the aging process of beer. For this reason our beer is only delivered in dark brown bottles.
In order to ensure optimal quality, beer should be stored in a dry, cool, dark space. Changes in temperature and direct sunlight should be avoided, since both can affect the flavour. The temperature should not exceed 8° C.
DAS RICHTIGE GLAS
Each type of beer has its own beer glass, which is designed to enhance the beer’s specific flavour and aroma to their optimum level.
THE WHEAT BEER GLASS
Best suited to our wheat beers is the classic wheat beer glass, which is tapered outward from the bottom to the top. This shape allows the beer’s fruit and fresh banana aromas to unfold to their full potential.
THE PILS GLASS
Our Exklusiv Pils is best enjoyed in fine, slender pils glasses. The thin glass promotes the delicate hops aroma, while the slender, elongated shape emphasises the luminous colour of this exclusive beer.
Alt-Schwäbisch Dunkel is best drunk in a so-called “Willybecher”, a small, fine beer glass with a simple, elegant form. This glass allows Alt-Schwäbisch Dunkel to display its fine, malty aroma to its full extent.
Our Premium Export and Zwick´l are best drunk in a beer mug. This allows the beer to show itself from its best side both in terms of look and taste. The even, cylindrical form helps these beers to present their full-bodied flavours. An ideal glass for the beer garden!
CLEANING BEER GLASSES
Beer glasses do not belong in the dishwasher!
Dishwasher detergents form a film on the glass, which cannot be removed by rinsing in cold water and has a pronounced effect on the sensitive beer froth. We recommend cleaning beer glasses with a brush and special glass-cleaning detergent, which can be found in all good grocery outlets. After cleaning, the glass should be rinsed in fresh cold water. The glass should then be allowed to dry in the air. Do not use a dishcloth!
PERFECT BEER ENJOYMENT
There are two ways of pouring beer, each suited to one of the two different beer types.
POURING TOP-FERMENTED BEERS
When pouring our wheat beers, the glass should initially be held at a 45° angle. Towards the end of the pour the glass should be brought upright to allow the head to form. When the bottle is almost empty swirl it vigorously to pick up the yeast sediment and pour this on top.
