Brauhaus am Damm
Thursday, August 30th, 2012
All our beer are strictly brewed according to the Bavarian “Reinheitsgebot” of 1516, the oldest governing foodstuffs in the world that is still in use. This law states that only water, barley, malt and hops may be used to produce beer. Yeast had not been discovered yet.
The finest ingredients are imported from Germany and are used in the brewing process in the cooper brew house, which is perfectly situated in the main dining area. After 4 weeks- used for fermenting and maturing- our traditional lager type beers are available on tap in their freshest form: directly from the cellar. In order to retain all the goodness, our beers are not filtered or pasteurised.
The rich amber coloured beer is brewed with the secret blend of 3 different types of the finest barley malt. It has a sparkling and refreshing taste with a hint of apricot and honey flavour. As it is without too much bitterness, we recommend it as an aperitif and to accompany the main course.
Farmers’ Draught is a blond-coloured beer, similar to the “ Munchener Helles” of the Bavarian beer halls. It has a lighter taste with a crisp pleasantly dry, yet soft finish. A real “drinking beer”.
Our dark, full flavoured beer with its cream coloured head will surprise you with a harmony of coffee, caramel and roast malt flavours, while the pleasant bitterness lingers on. A perfect match for main courses and desserts.
This variable beer option will be crafted from time to time for a limited duration only. The brewer experiments with new flavours and beer styles to provide you with something “different” throughout the year.
