Der Ökobräu im Altmühltal

Wo Dinkel und Emmer zu Bier werden
2012 | 45 min | Recommended min. age: 16 y

“Eco doesn’t taste good”. One of the first organic breweries in Germany had to struggle with this prejudice. Funny enough, it was only after the bottles said what had been inside for years: “beer from organically grown hops and grain, produced by hand to the highest quality.”
It’s nice to see that the prejudices have subsided and that people now appreciate and love the beer specialities of the Riedenburg brewery in the picturesquely situated Altmühltal.

The Krieger family has been pioneers in the art of brewing for generations. Grandfather Krieger was one of the first to brew wheat beer in Bavaria, which is now an integral part of Bavaria. Four generations later, Michael Krieger hopes that his beer specialities made from old grain varieties such as emmer, spelt and einkorn will spread as well and that the family business will continue to exist.

The unfiltered is beer good for the environment and people, because it doesn’t only taste good, but it is also very healthy.
