The heart of the Stiegl-"Hausbrauerei" beats in the ancient vaulted basements of our old-brewery building. In two small copper kettles, strictly limited quantities of beer are brewed by hand, which are subsequently partially matured in barrels in our aging cellar.
This is our tribute to the ancient art of brewing, which we still celebrate until this day.
The creativity of our brew masters is given free rein, and the results are our Stiegl Craft Beers.
These beers are unparalleled and look for a resembling in their field. Stiegl Craft Beers stand for the highest level of brewing culture, for individuality and diversity.
Stiegl Craft Beer CHRISTKINDL
The production of honey beers has a long tradition: Refining beer with honey dates as far back as to the time of the ancient Germanic peoples. They were inspired by the honey wine "Met", which has been enjoyed by the gods of Nordic mythology. Also the Vikings are known to have brewed a special beer to celebrate winter solstice at the end of December.
Whether their Christmas season turned out to be as peaceful and reflective as ours? After a few swallows of this festive Stiegl Christmas beer, this question can quickly be answered with a "no".
Our creative head brewer describes our Stiegl Craft Beer Christkindl as follows:
„Dressed in a deep copper with red highlights and a snow-white foam crown, 'Christkindl' promises festive pleasure. The variety of aromas on the nose range from caramel to delicate biscuit, blending together with compelling hints of honey. The mild taste of organic honey sets the tone well into the finish, while an astoundingly harmonious composition of delicate hoppy notes and a fine effervescence please the palate with a touch of Christmas.“
