Zoiglbier - A Tradition in Bavaria

The Zoigl - the cult beer of the Bavarian Upper Palatinate - is a bottom-fermented beer that is brewed light or dark according to old brewing traditions. For centuries the mash of water and barley malt was brewed for the Zoigl in the so-called communal breweries in the Upper Palatinate - for all citizens who owned the brewing right (everyone felt that way back then) and financed the communal brewery (i.e. paid their "boiler money"). The respective Zoiglwirt took the wort home with him, added bottom-fermenting yeast in the fermenting cellar and let the whole thing mature. When the beer was ready, the landlord attached a "Bierzeiger" (branch or beer star) to the house. So everybody in the village knew where to get Zoigl directly from the storage tank for the next two to four weeks, plus a good snack and of course the best mood. When the beer was finished, the beer star went to the communal brewer, who was next in line.

Although the same brewing process was always used, each Zoigl tasted different. Which was simply because every Zoigl landlord had his own recipe and used his own ingredients. Today the Zoigl is mainly produced in communal breweries in the northern Upper Palatinate. Only a few of them still exist: in the villages Windischeschenbach, Neuhaus, Mitterteich, Falkenberg and Eslarn. One does everything to preserve the "Oberpfälzer Zoiglkultur", which has even become a nationwide "immaterial cultural heritage".

Therefore we have Zoigl in our assortment

Also in Franconia there were in former times communal breweries, in which Zoiglbier was brewed after the example of the neighbours. Some Franconian breweries still preserve the beer style today and brew their very own Zoigl. A palatable, strong and mostly unfiltered beer, with a coppery colour and a distinct malt note. A real speciality that every beer lover simply must have tried. And so that a comparison with a "real Zoigl" is possible, you will find in our shop not only the Franconian Zoigl but also one or the other Zoigl classic from the Upper Palatinate.
