The Schübel brewery in Stadtsteinach in the beautiful Franconian Forest Nature Park is one of the last private breweries in the Kulmbach district. It was founded in 1872, was once one of the municipal breweries in the town and is firmly in family hands. Currently, master brewer Jürgen Münch and his wife Andrea Schübel-Münch are the fifth generation to run the Schübel brewery. Their son Mario, a trained brewer and maltster, is already at the brew kettle - the future is assured.
Schübel A Franconian - The beer for the Franconian Day
The unfiltered, amber-colored Franconian cellar beer is typically Franconian. Visually, with the "Franconian coat of arms" on the label, the red jagged rake on a white background, taste-wise with a strong, aromatic hop note that is second to none. How did such a special beer come about? In 2010, the "Day of Franconia", which takes place every year in one of the three Franconian administrative districts, was celebrated in Upper Franconia, in Kulmbach to be precise - under the motto: Enjoy Franconia. A wonderful occasion for a wonderful new beer. And that is Schübel A Franconian. In 2012, it was even awarded the EUROPEAN BEER STAR in bronze and is still the most popular beer from the Schübel brewery.
The other beers in the range also stand out from the broad Upper Franconian beer crowd. For example, Nordeck-Trunk and Pressecker Drachenseidla, both unfiltered cellar beers, or Leonhardor, the bock beer and real strong beer that is only available during Lent. By the way, the brandies made from plums and corn, which the Schübel family produces in its own distillery, are also really strong. By the way: The double-distilled "Stanicher", the beer schnapps, should definitely be tried when you are on site.
