COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ist nun ein Bau vorbei, da gibt’s ’n Schmauserei
gut zu essen, viel zu trinken,
gebrat’ne Wurst und Schinken,
viel Bier noch hintendrein,
da ist gut Steinmetz sein.

So heißt es in einem alten Steinmetzlied. Dieses Handwerk kann im Mühlviertel auf eine lange Tradition verweisen. Auch wurde ein eigener Granitlehrpfad eingerichtet und natürlich ein entsprechendes Bier gebraut. Ein Bier wie es früher eines Steinmetz würdig war, kräftigund dunkel.

Schon die Farbe verrät, hier steht ein besonderes Bier. Das Hofstettner Granitbier - bernstein schimmernd weckt es die Neugierde und will verkostet werden.

Schon im Antrunk eröffnen sich leichte Caramelnoten, die aus dunklen Malzen stammen. Die Mischung machts, in diesem Bier verbinden sich Röstaromen tiefbrauner Malze mit der Harmonie von hellem Malz. Die Hopfennote darf hier nur unterstützend sein und so schillert ein Hauch von Blumigkeit mit hinein in das Geschmackserlebnis.

Der Name Granit erinnert an die geologische Wurzel des Mühlviertels. Der Granitstein wirkt wie ein Filter auf das Wasser, welches dadurch zu einer globalen Besonderheit wird, die nur Mühlviertler Bieren zugrunde liegt.

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2008
[bottle at the brewery] Pours an almost amber/yellow color. Malty, hop aroma. Flavors are clean, caramel malts with a solid dose of noble hops. Interesting mineral-y finish. Dry and grassy.

guzgorog (171) - FRANCE - MAR 31, 2014
Bouteille à la con, attention en versant. Bière ambrée foncée avec des reflets rouges, peu de mousse. Nez de malt, de caramel et de fruits secs. En bouche, ma’amertume est légère, le malt est très dominant, c’est d’ailleurs assez remarquable pour une bière titrant 5%. Intéressant et bon !

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle, from trade with Papsoe. A lightly unclear, golden beer with a dense, off-white head of moderate size. The aroma is a bit too much on the hayish, grainy and grassy side, but there’s some pleasant peppery hop notes and a little caramel hint. Quite dry on the palate, pleasantly carbonated. Pale malts, caramel, some bitterness and a little grassy hint as well. Lasting finish. A drinkable one, but not very interesting. 131026
