Formerly brewed at August Schell Brewing Company
Schell Anniversary Draft Series #4, honoring the birthday of Warren “Schmaltz” Marti, President of Schell’s from 1969-1985. Literally translated as “Black Beer.” Often referred to as a “Black Pils” due to it’s higher hopping levels. In reality, Schwarzbiers are neither truly black, nor as hoppy as a Pilsner. Schwarzbiers are a regional specialty beer from southern Thuringen and northern Franconia in Germany, and most likely began as a variation of the dunkel. Rich, mild, and remarkably well balanced. Lighter in body than its black ale counterparts with notes of bittersweet chocolate and vanilla.
