Dunkle Weisse

Dunkle Weisse

Characteristic:

Georg Pschorr’s creation, the Dunkle Weisse (dark) style of Wheat beer is 100% natural, brewed with pure spring water, Hacker-Pschorr’s centuries-old, top-fermenting, exclusive yeast strain, Bavarian Hallertau hops, 60% dark- and light-colored malted wheat and 40% dark- and light-colored malted barley. This provides the beer with a deeper amber color than regular Wheat beers and a more robust and fuller flavor. This beer can tame the spiciest items on the menu while it maintains the characteristic refreshment of wheat beer. Aroma: A clean, robust, malty nose with hints of hops appearance: Dark, rich color, yet exceedingly clear taste: A smoky, malt flavor. Dunkle Weisse is a cross between traditional Weisse and Märzen styles.

The Beer Belly

We all love beer. I think that is a given. The problem with good beer isn’t just the occasional hangover; it’s also what the wife has probably mentioned to you, calories. The better the beer the more the calories, that’s the way it seems. So drinking copious amounts of good beer invariably leads to… the Beer Belly.

Since the Czechs drink more beer then anyone else, they were investigated to find the link between beer and the belly. Almost 2,000 people were tested in Prague and absolutely no link was found to justify the term “Beer Belly”. This is according to a BBC article on The Beer Belly.

This is great news for beer lovers everywhere! However a killjoy named Nigel Denby of the British Dietetic Association warned people not to take the studies findings all the way to the pub, so to speak.

Another BBC article on The Beer Belly seems to get to bottom of the issue. It appears that the Beer Belly can be attributed not to drinking beer, but to drinking a lot of beer… quickly. A study found that binge drinking can contribute to an “Apple-shaped” figure. So if you drink 10 beers, 2 nights out of the week you will get a Beer Belly. However, if you drink 2 beers, 5 nights out of the week, you won’t get a Beer Belly.
This is good news. You just have to spread the beer love. Not all at once. Enjoy two delicious beers almost every night and you’ll be fine.

OK, enough dodging. If you have a serious Beer Belly going on, your pretty daft if your blaming it all on beer. The number one thing is dieting, but if you’re only interested in losing the Beer Belly, then you need to work out your transverse abdominus, or TVA. The best way to do this is as follows:
1. Place one of your fingers on your belly button
2. Without taking in a deep breath. Try to move your belly button inward as far away from your finger as you can
3. Hold your belly button in for 5 seconds working your way up to a minute
4. Advanced: as your holding in your belly button-tightly squeeze your ABS

Auer Introduction

.

Auerbräu Rosenheim

.

The Auer Bräu brewery can look back on an exceptionally successful history that began in 1887 when Johann Auer acquired a 29,000 square meter plot of land near the new station in Rosenheim. For his company, he chooses a mating grouse as a brand icon. A year later in 1888 came the purchase of the Saubräu with Rossacker, which was further enhanced by significant investment in a modern brewery. Right from 1889 Auer Bräu is brewed in the new operation at the Münchener Straße. From then on, the Auer Bräu was continuously expanded by adding purchases “Grabenstätt” in Rosenheim and the “Sternbräu Bräu am Anger” in Halfing the “Schiessl-Bräu” and in Grabenstätt the “Schlossbrauerei Grabenstätt”. In 1923, the Auer Bräu turned public listed company by merging with the “Paulaner Salvator Thomasbräu AG” in Munich, the “Schuhbrauerei Bad Aibling”, the “Schlossbrauerei Brannenburg” and the Schlossbrauerei Vagen. Special opportunities to visit Rosenheim are the Rosenheim Strong Beer Festival and the Rosenheim Autumn Festival.

Hopf Introduction

Tradition in Miesbach – Hopf Wheat Beer Brewery

Hopf – for over 85 years to determine the history and tradition and innovation, the name Hopf stands for the very special wheat beer enjoyment. Linked to the home region and firmly anchored in the town of Miesbach we brew with care and love a vaeriety of wheat beers in award-winning quality. Already in the late Middle Ages it were the Bavarians, who refined and cultured this specialty in their breweries. Long time, the wheat beer production was a privilege and the monopoly wheat beer was a safe and important source of income of Wittelsbach. In 1892, the wheat beer brewery in Miesbach “Hopf” was founded. Since 1921, our  brewmasterlead the way, for the love of Bavarian art of brewing and of connectedness, to the fortunes of the “Hopf” brewery. Brewed to the Bavarian purity law, we can see to this day different varieties of the highest quality in our product range, as the presentation of the “Prize for Excellence in gold” of the DLG for more than 15 years of gold medal winners. Determination coupled with the Bavarian-earth virtues, honesty and sense of tradition are the foundation for continued success.
