The Bavarian State Brewery Weihenstephan, established in 1040 in Freising, Germany, claims the title of the world's oldest continuously operating brewery. Over the centuries, Weihenstephan has evolved from a monastic brewery to a state-of-the-art facility, marrying traditional brewing methods with cutting-edge technology. The brewery is renowned for its wide range of beers, including its iconic Hefeweizen, which has set the standard for the style globally. Weihenstephan emphasizes quality and innovation, contributing significantly to brewing science through its association with the Technical University of Munich's brewing program. This historic brewery has garnered numerous international awards, reflecting its commitment to excellence and its influence on the global beer landscape. The Weihenstephan Academy further underlines the brewery's dedication to education and the advancement of the brewing arts.

St. Bernardus Brewery began its journey in 1946 in Watou, Belgium, initially brewing Trappist beers under the St. Sixtus monastery's license. Although it no longer holds this license, St. Bernardus continues to produce beers that are highly regarded for their quality and complexity, akin to the Trappist tradition. Known for rich, full-bodied ales, St. Bernardus has a loyal following among craft beer enthusiasts worldwide. The brewery's flagship beer, St. Bernardus Abt 12, is frequently ranked among the best beers in the world. St. Bernardus prides itself on blending age-old brewing traditions with modern techniques to create distinctive and memorable beers. This commitment to quality is evident in their careful selection of ingredients and meticulous brewing process. The brewery's picturesque location in the Belgian countryside adds to the mystique and appeal of its beers, making it a beloved fixture in the craft beer community.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: The Braupakt pours a deep golden colour, shimmering with clarity and crowned with a rich, foamy head.
  • Aroma: It offers a bouquet of spicy and fruity notes, with a dominant clove scent enhanced by subtle hints of banana and citrus, a testament to its Weihenstephan yeast.
  • Flavour: On the palate, it is robust and spicy. The initial taste is warmly welcoming with spices and progresses into a fruity sweetness, balanced by a mild bitterness of 28 IBU.
  • Mouthfeel: It has a medium body with a smooth texture, leading to a dry and satisfying finish that invites another sip.

Perfectly complemented by a zander fillet or other mild, white fish, the spicy and fruity notes of the Braupakt enhance the delicate flavours of the dish. It's also an excellent companion to roasted pork or spicy Asian cuisine, making it a versatile choice for any meal.
