Borefts 2016 theme
500 Years ago in 1516 in Bavaria (Germany) the Reinheitsgebot became law (German Beer Purity Law). And whenever there’s a party, we want to join! The law states that the only ingredients that could be used in the production of beer are water, barley and hops. Yeast was also added to modern versions of this law after the discovery of its role in fermentation (thanks a million mr. Pasteur!). We challenged our guest brewers, often know for modern beers with complex flavours and various ingredients to make a brilliant (keller)beer according to this purity law. So this year’s theme for Borefts Bierfestival 2016 special brew: Reinheitsgebot. No challage at all for Andreas & Daniele Gänstaller as all their beers are brewed within that law!
