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.

herrklemann (386) - Graz, AUSTRIA - AUG 12, 2016
Pours a dark clear amber with a frothy, off-white head. Subtle aroma of sweet malts, toffee, hints of grass and toast, slightly perfumy. Taste is slightly sweet at first and blens into a medium bitterness that lingers in the finish. Medium carbonation, oily light-to-medium body. Subtle, with the right balance between bitterness and sweetness. Very enjoyable, very drinkable. Definitely worth a try!

ciocanelu (2801) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 7, 2016
Aroma has toasted malt, a bit of caramel, mostly sweet but not overly so. Taste starts with malt, bread crust and finishes with a noble hop bitterness. Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall it’s quite good. Tasty but easy to drink.

nybol (2280) - DENMARK - JUN 4, 2016
Ved ikke lige hvordan granit smager, men der er lidt jern smag i denne øl. Det kan være smagen af de sten man smider i denne øl, ligeom Thisteds stenøl. Den har den klassiske skarpe smag af bock, og er helt klart en rigtig god, omend lidt speciel, øl.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2016 0,33 l bottle, Vichy style. Bought at Hof Luckmann, Bissendorf, Germany. Clear amber in the glass, small white head. Malty with some sweetness on the nose. Taste starts with sweet toasted malt, some fruitieness in the second row. Later caramell, smooth, earthy, some hop in the background, low bitterness, low carbonation. Okay.
