The craft and demonstration brewery is right next to the Langlaufstüberl. We started producing our traditional, unfiltered Achensee Hell and Achensee Weizen beers on 6th December 2010. The ingredients we use to make our beers are only of the best quality: wheat and barley malt from Weyermann Malz, Bamberg, hops from Holletau, Speckner yeast and pure Karwendel water. We brew our beer in KBA250 kettles made by the Austrian company, Dreher-Brauanlage. With double drop fermentation we can produce 500 l beer per day.

Our guests enthuse about our two beers the naturally cloudy and aromatic Achensee Hell and the refreshing Achensee Weizen with its typical fruity banana aroma. The beers are served in special Kristallglas Kisslinger glasses and complement the fare from our menus, theme and dance evenings at the Langlaufstüberl. Brewery visits, beer tasting and cheese and beer tasting can be organised by prior arrangement. Special beer festivals celebrating the beer tapping of seasonal beers such as the Weihnachtsbock, Winterweisse, Maibock or Oktoberbier and the Brausilvester (start of the brewing season) are an ideal way to gain an insight into the diverse world of beer. The cheese is supplied by our yearlong partner the Heumilchkäserei Reith im Alpbachtal.

This wheat beer is an ideal thirst quencher – a popular refreshing drink after outdoor activities in the Sport- und Vital Park Achensee – for men and women.
