In the idyllic Fichtelgebirge, around the Ochsenkopf, the second highest mountain in the Fichtelgebirge, there is only one brewery left: the Hütten brewery. It is located in Hütten, a district of the municipality of Warmensteinach. Here, in a small family business, the finest beer specialties have been brewed since 1602. Currently by the two brewmasters Wolfgang and Patrick Nickl.
Beers of the brewery Hütten - brewed with own spring water
Just behind the brewery springs the purest spring water, which Hüttners use for brewing and which makes the beers so typical and special in taste. The two brewers produce the typical beer varieties of the region, of course according to old-established tradition - whether Pils, Helles, Weissbier, Zwickl or Zoigl. An absolute hit in the Hütten Bier range: Fichtenhopfinger. This is brewed only in spring, with cone hops from the region, grown by friends, neighbors or private people from the neighboring villages. It is clear that Fichtenhopfinger is only available in small quantities. It is all the more sought-after by those who have already had the good fortune to try a Seidla.
Good to know: In addition to beer, Nickls also distill beer schnapps in their in-house distillery. This can be enjoyed after one of the coveted brewery tours. Guests are always welcome at the Hütten brewery, and anyone who wants to learn more about brewing or even brew their own beer should attend one of the wonderful brewing seminars. From grinding malt with a hand mill, to mashing, mash work and fermentation - in the brewing seminar you learn everything you should know as a brewer of tomorrow. Cleaning included! The beer is tasted together six weeks later, which is how long the beer matures in the storage cellar.
