Kübelbier is brewed according to the historic beer style: Zwickelbier. Zwickelbier comes from the Franconia region in Germany and dates back beyond the Middle Ages. The name “Zwickelbier” stems from the sampling mug (”Zwickel” in German) mounted at the outside of the tank for assessing the brew’s progress during fermentation. The Zwickelbier style is an unfiltered lager beer (Bottom-fermenting) that traditionally is served as soon as fermentation is complete.

Kübelbier is brewed as a pilsner and is then bottled directly from the cellars without any filtration allowing all the yeast and natural substances to enter the bottle. Unlike Kellerbier, the maturation casks of Zwickelbier are bunged (”gespundet" in German) just before the end of the fermentation. This builds up effervescence in the brew. Our Kübelbier is a very unique interpretation of this classic style to add robustness & character. It is quite hoppy at around 35 IBU.

The beer pours a cloudy orange-yellowish color with a nice white head. The unique attributes of the style come through on the palate as the flavors imparted by the yeast compliment the hop character and carbonation in the beer to create a uniquely robust yet refreshing beer.
