Ayinger Bavarian Pils
The History of Ayinger Bavarian Pils
Introduced to the US for the first time in 2017, and available year-round. German brewers produce a beer style famous the world over, pils: a brisk golden lager with snappy hop aroma and pure barley malt flavor, originally inspired by Czech Pilsner beers. German pils beers were the original inspiration for golden lagers in the US: German brewers made this popular style when they set up new US breweries in the latter half of the 19th century.
Ayinger Bavarian Pils is the flavor of a fruitful barley harvest, seasoned with noble hops: a brisk golden lager with snappy hop aroma and velvety-soft malt flavor, from locally-grown barley. A thick creamy head rests atop this brilliantly clear, golden elixir. Ayinger Pils shows the masterful perfection of four classic ingredients melded by a family’s generations of brewing skill: barley malt; hops; water from an Ice Age aquifer via the brewery’s well; and lager yeast.
Goat cheese or mild cheddar, grilled bratwurst with sauerkraut and pomme frites, croque monsieur, fried oysters with spicy remoulade, jerk or tandoori chicken, sushi, pound cake, or strawberry rhubarb pie. Serve in tall, tapered pils glass.

This family-owned brewery in the foothills of the Alps is famous for a full range of award-winning Bavarian specialty beers.
Brauerei Aying has a long-standing reputation for excellence in beer and hospitality. Although Ayinger Brewery was founded in a picturesque village 25 kilometers from Munich in 1878, the site of the Ayinger Gasthaus Brewery Hotel has been one of Bavaria’s most famous restaurants for more than 500 years.
In the shadow of the Alps, nestled in the 1200 year-old village of Aying (pronounced eye-ing), Brauerei Aying produces 12 different styles of beers, more than most of the larger
breweries. The Ayinger Brewery has been owned and operated by the same family since 1878 and represents one of the most pleasant and interesting small breweries which are typical of Europe. Brewing good beer is the premier duty of Aying, and people come from all over the world to sample the wares.
In a land of wonderful breweries, Ayinger is considered a benchmark of excellence. In recent years, Ayinger regularly places first in every category entered in the World Beer Championships; the brewery has gold medals from the European Beer Star, the Helsinki Beer Fest, the Stockholm Beer & Whiskey Festival, the Calagary Brewfest, and the Deutsche Landwirtschaftsgesellschaft (German Agricultural Society). In January 2015, ratebeer.com listed Ayinger as the “best brewery in Germany” based on thousands and thousands of consumer rankings.
