Alpirsbacher Klosterbräu

Brewed with loving care

All our Black Forest beer specialities are brewed with loving care following traditional recipes. What Carl Albert Glauner already knew as early as 1880 and still applies today: It takes a passion for the fine art of beer brewing, combined with well-balanced recipes and the famous Black Forest spring water - our well-guarded treasure – to produce unmistakable beer specialities. For lovers of classical beers, we brew our "Spezial" lager, Beer alcohol free and our three types of wheat beer: the unfiltered Hefeweizen in alcohol free, pale and dark varieties and the filtered Kristall. 

Those looking for something a little more special should try our Ambrosius Abtei-Beer, Klosterstoff,
Kloster Weisse, Kloster Dunkel dark lager or our Kloster Zwickel beer. Shandy fans are sure to find satisfaction with our various specialities all in different, refreshing flavours. 

Every year in the autumn and winter we offer seasonal specials such as our Herbstfestbier, Weihnachtsbier and Kloster Starkbier – but only for a limited period. By the way, the monks also brewed a special Bock beer during Lent because they had to fast during the daytime and the Bock beer was more nourishing for them. That is probably where the expression "liquid bread" originated.
