The Bavarian State Brewery Weihenstephan is focused on Tradition while being a state-of-the-art enterprise at the same time. Our brew masters honor the century old brewing tradition and the handcraft of their guild by creating an unfiltered Kellerbier with all of their passion, according to a handed down recipe through history and with premium ingredients only.
The “Weihenstephaner 1516” is unfiltered, hence retains the typical pure character which is underlined by the amber color and the stable froth. This style of a typical Kellerbier is one of the most traditional and typical Bavarian types of beer and exists at least as long as the Purity Law is in effect. At the first sip our Kellerbier reveals a touch of caramel. Its fresh and fruity aroma is owed to the chosen hops and accompanied by a pleasant bitterness. In combination with a well-balanced malt body this wonderfully mild and smooth beer was created to please both, your tongue and mind. In order to stay in consistency with the historical theme we used solely traditional and local hops like "Hallertauer Record", "Hallertauer Perle" and "Halltertauer Mittelfrüh".
