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.

Crisp refreshing beer. Pale clear appearance. Well made but nothing much more to write. Slight very slight hint of wheat.

Tap at Print Hall. This beer is kind of like a half wheat beer, half pilsner. Super clean and refreshing. not too much of anything. Just very easy going and quaffable. Solid
