Questa è la birra che decisi di creare per celebrare il mio matrimonio, in omaggio alla mia sposa che ha sempre avuto una predilezione per le Rauch. La città di Bamberg con le sue tradizionali birre affumicate ci è rimasta nel cuore; l’abbiamo girata in lungo e in largo, abbiamo indugiato sui tavoli delle sue birrerie e ci siamo fermati tante volte a contemplare i rivoli d’acqua del fiume Regnitz.
Al matrimonio ci furono circa duecento invitati e 450 litri di birra a disposizione. Ricordo che il giovedì mi trovavo ancora a Tettnang a selezionare il luppolo del nuovo raccolto e mi dovevo sposare il sabato, per decorare la festa portai dieci piante intere di luppolo appena staccate dal campo. Invece del riso gli invitati ci lanciarono fiori di luppolo e nel taschino della giacca portai un rametto di luppolo in fiore. Quella del matrimonio fu a detta di molti la festa più bella di tutta la loro vita, fu una cosa davvero memorabile. Vendemmo la birra non consumata ai nostri clienti ai quali piacque così tanto che decidemmo di continuare a produrla e ora è entrata a far parte della famiglia.

I created this beer to celebrate my wedding and my bride who has always loved Rauch beers. The city of Bamberg is particularly dear to us. We ventured through its streets, indulged in its well known smoked beers and stood together contemplating the water ripples of the river Regnitz.
Being in Tettnang 2 days before the wedding to select the newly harvested hops, I brought back 10 freshly uprooted hop plants to decorate the wedding reception. Instead of the traditional rice tossing, the guests showered us with hop flowers. My weeding suit was garmented by a small hop blossom as well. With more than 200 guests and 450 liters of beer, many remember our celebration as one of the most memorable gatherings they have ever attended.
Selling the leftover beer to some clients was such a success that we decided to keep brewing it. It is now part of our beer family!

TBone (11884) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Bottled 330ml BB 11/2012 Bierkompass. Clear copper color, small white head. Good aroma of smoke, toasted and cara malts. Light to medium bodied. Cara malt, smokeyness, some bitterness in the finish. Tickling carbonation. Nicely drinkable. For wedding? For sure!

330ml bottle from The Wine Emporium. Great beer with a great story behind it. Smokiness in the aroma and flavour reminds me of a campfire.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
In short: A copper ale on the meaty side of smoke. Acceptable.
How: From a bottle at Montreal Mondial 2013.
The look: Cloudy copper body topped by a very small beige head.
In long: Nose is medium smoky, a smoked pull pork and beach campfire. In mouth the smoked pull pork sensation dominates, oily cereals, some caramel, balancing leafy hops. Feeble bubbles, a mouthfeel that lacks vivacity. Nothing exciting here, a slightly below take on the style. Not sure where the name comes from, but speaking of weddings, I always cry at weddings, thinking it is Saturday and I’m not at a pub drinking beer.

bobinlondon (1250) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle from the GBBF 13 in the comfort of my home, along side Marmite on toast. Slightly hazy amber with an off white head. Modest smoke on the aroma but far more in the flavour, in a cheese rather than pork kind of way. Slightly more body at 5.4% than your average German Rauchbier, so held up well to many of those I drank on my recent visit to Frankonia: pre Bock season. A very respectable interpretation of this style.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle from GBBF 2013 drank at home. Brown beer with a lasting beige head. Lovely smoked aroma. I mean you have to like smoked beers, but this is a pretty good one. Smoked cheese rather than smoked meat. It’s good in the mouth. Just the right side of TCP on aroma. Good though

Scopey (5506) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle at GBBF. It pours deep brown with a small yellow-white head. The nose is earth, light smoke, oiliness, medicinal notes and Snickers. The taste is smooth, sweet, caramel, smokey, oily, wood and ham with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A very solid, well-rounded smoked beer. Decent,

caesar (4710) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2013
Tap @ Beer Temple. Clear amber color, short head. Aroma of german smoked malts, beechwood, slight flowery hops. Soft bitter taste, dry from the smoked malts. Almost classic Bamberg style rauchbier. Could have used a bit more body, but great brew overall. Cheers to your wedding!
