Got a package from Häffner Bräu yesterday. Looks like I got the last Amarillo Strong Ale. Puhhhh...

Bought a small citra bottle in Berlin, and I was quite impressed. Wein Kultur had the big ones but was selling them for 19€95 which I found to be a bit overpriced. He told me he had to drive to the brewery to get them.
Would love to try them, but not at that price.

Is there an online shop where we can purchase them ?

Interesting news. When I was at the brewery some years ago, I would never have expected them to start brewing these things.

I was totally surprised as well.
I went there last September, it was a dull restaurant in a smelly hotel, and nothing would indicate they had anything else than the usual Helles/Dunkel/Export...

I went there again this spring only after noticing the IPA/APA on these pages.
And then I also found the 3 bigger sisters, this time on display on the counter.

I didn’t ask much, but they have a "young" brewer, they told me, who likes to experiment; possibly a new guy since you were there a few years ago...


By the way, I ended my project in June, I’m out of Germany for the moment; I miss those Helles all around B-W...

Unfortunately I am still waiting for an answer to my email. I used the contact form on their site and of course I wrote in German. :(

Don’t worry - I also used the contact form. It may take a few days until they answer you. Otherwise try «info ÄT hopfenstopfer PUNKT de»

They responded to me in a day or two. Of course, it’s August now, and this means half the country is in Spain or Italy.

Indeed the brewer does appear to be very young. Somewhere online, there’s a photo of him but I can’t find it at the Brauereiwebseite.

He is to be commended, but he needs to switch to a drier yeast. And send some to me for free on a regular basis.
