RateBeer.com -- Correct Colonial DampfbierColonial Dampfbier


Description:
We love German beers at Colonial, in particular rare or forgotten styles. For this, our latest foray into that nation’s beer history, we’ve headed to the forests of Bavaria and seem to have been inspired to even greater levels. Essentially, it seems that the original Dampfbier (Steam beer) was one borne of necessity, created by poor dwellers of the Bavarian Forest, comprising local barley as they needed to use wheat for bread, locally grown hops as they couldn’t afford those from the nearby Hallertau region, surplus yeast scrounged from the nearest weissbier brewery, all thrown together in a brew over which they had no temperature control. Dampfbier disappeared into the history books by the early 20th century and now is back as the last of our journeys into Germany’s brewing past.
