Schwarzbräu at GBSA 2016

Schwarzbräu at GBSA 2016

The raging favourite of this year's tasting competitions will surely be the Schwarzbräu Brewery from Zusmarshausen. This brewery takes great advantage of its location in the natural park situated in Bavarian Swabia. A 70-meter deep well supplies the brewery with very clean springwater from the Pleistocene Epoch preserved in the Earth's crust. Their hops come from the renowned surrounding areas - i.e. Hallertau, Tettnang and Spalt. Yeast is produced under strict supervision directly in the brewery. The Schwarzbräu beers are fermented twice, two kinds of beer yeast. Brewmasters can thus produce a greater range and variety of flavours.

Furthermore, the brewery has its own malt house. Thanks to all these benefits the brewery is achieving more and more success.
