Traditional beer brewing

For perfect beer

The art and craft of brewing has a very long tradition in the beer town of Kulmbach. Even today, it's still traditional recipes and experiences that give our many different speciality beers their unique flavour and inspire our master brewers to brew our Mönchshof beers every day with dedication, still following the Bavarian purity law.
