Ayinger Jahrhundert Bier
Golden “export-style” lager with a medium body, a very pure, clean malt flavor, and a long lingering finish with a dry hop tone. Serve in a “willibecker” glass with schwammerlsuppe (mushroom soup), herbed pancakes, pork roast, eggplant Parmesan sandwiches, sauerbraten, falafel, or pot stickers. Great with fish. ABV: 5.2%
The History of Jahrhundert Bier
The invention of refrigeration allowed lagers to be shipped long distances. Dortmund, in Westphalia, was the first German city to develop the “Dortmund” or “Export” style of brewing. This beer was first brewed to commemorate one century of brewing in Aying Bavaria, in 1978.
Golden, big herbaceous bouquet with a soft, medium body and a long lingering finish with dry hop tones. This light lager is a better complement to food than the higher hopped and more bitter pilsner style.
Schwammerlsuppe (mushroom soup), herb pancakes, pike with sauerkraut, pork roast, sauer-braten, falafel, pot stickers or 100 year old eggs. Serve in willibecker tumbler or stoneware mug at 45 °F.
