THE REVIVAL OF A HISTORIC BRAND
In the nineteenth century, brothers Carl and Anton Veltins brewed an exquisite beer in the Grevensteiner Brewery that achieved much more than popularity. With Grevensteiner beer, Brauerei C. & A. Veltins has brought this story back to life because brewing tradition and speciality beers are experiencing a revival in Germany. More and more consumers are discovering the diversity of the world of beer and are developing a passion for beer culture.
The beer exhibits a silky soft amber colour with orange hues and has a smooth, velvety head. The complex taste is initially dominated by caramel with a light undertone of honey and roasted almonds and fresh, fruity notes closely resembling green apples. Despite its intense and slightly malty, sweet taste, Grevensteiner is still noticeably tangy and elegant. A roasted bitter note coupled with a nutty flavour tops off this sensory experience by allowing a creamy caramel taste to unfold.
