Schell Anniversary Series #3 - Bavarian Forest Dampfbier


Formerly brewed at August Schell Brewing Company
New Ulm, Minnesota USA
Style: Traditional Ale | Ratings: 11 | Series Seasonal | Alcohol: -
In honoring Otto Schell, the second president of Schellís (1902-1911), comes the third beer of the Schellís 150th Anniversary Draft Beer Series. Dampfbiers came from southern Bavaria during the late eighteenth century, when the Bavarian Forest was was one of the poorest regions in Bavaria. Wheat was too valuable to be wasted on beer brewing, and the hops of the nearby Hallertau region were too expensive to purchase. So brewers developed an all barley beer, but didnít have the temperature control to produce lagers. With ales being a rarity in Germany, it required the brewer to travel to the nearest Weissbier brewery and scrounge some yeast to brew their Dampfbier.
