“Today I bake, tomorrow I brew,
The day after that the queen's child comes in.” (Grimm's Fairy Tales - Rumpelstiltskin)
Beer has been enjoyed for hundreds of years. But did you know that for a long time, brewing was naturally done by women?
The production of beer was once a normal household activity - just like baking, cooking or washing. Therefore it was natural for women to stand at the brewing kettle.
It was not until the Late Middle Ages that the profession of the beer brewer developed into a male domain.
Today the brewing at the Stiegl Brewery is also in the hand of men. Our master brewers make sure that your favourite Stiegl beer always tastes as good as it always has!
STIEGL - THE SALZBURG BREWERY WITH A LONG TRADITION
For 525 years, the privately owned Stiegl Brewery stood for "the art of brewing at the top of the steps/at its highest level" ("Braukunst auf höchster Stufe").
