Braunbier. This is another throwback to the good old days but still very much a style and while you don’t see many around nowadays, they are lurking here and there. If familiar with Märzen, they’re similar in their malty quality, are light brown to amber in color and generally around 5.5%.

Bamberg’s Klosterbräu Braunbier is a fine one and if in Bayreuth, try Schinner Braunbier. It’s contract-brewed but still a tasty tipple. One of my favorites was Acchönla from Forchheim’s Brauerei Eichhorn but they sadly closed in February 2022.

Next up Dampfbier or back to Beer Styles.
