Our classic smoked beer with the number 1 invites you with its fine beechwood-smoky notes to take your first sip. The pronounced notes of malt reminiscent of dark chocolate and bread crust; creating a harmonious, characterful beer, which was able to convince the experts of the DLG.
Besides the smoky flavor, also the name is truly Franconian! Schlotfegerla® means “little chimneysweep” and fits right to the beautiful dark appearance of the beer.
The DLG test is one of the most demanding beer tests in the world. The DLG quality test focuses on criteria such as foam stability, taste variety and the purity of the beers. A beer is awarded gold only when all the quality characteristics are met flawlessly.
The tests are carried out in cooperation with the two leading brewery institutes, VLB Berlin and the Weihenstephan Research Center for Brewing and Food Quality.
The Weyermann® brew manufacture team around master brewer Constantin Förtner is absolutely thrilled about the award - and the whole of Weyermann® rejoices with them!
