Zoigl is more of a beer culture than a style. While largely confined to a few select areas in northern Bavaria, there is one very interesting example in the Allgäu region. Kaubeuren Zoigl Ludwigstrasse 47 has all the right ingredients and is well worth exploring if in the area.
Klosterbrauerei Mallersdorf is the last with a brewing nun at its helm. Take a stroll around its grounds, the countryside surrounding it and enjoy the fine food and beer on offer at their Klosterbräustüberl.
Klosterbrauerei Mallersdorf Zoigl isn't a true Zoigl in the traditional sense but the flavor component is there and is nonetheless a tasty beer to seek out.
Klosterbrauerei Mallersdorf Jubiläumsbier is a full rich Festbier with a touch of honey in both the nose and palate. The lingering semi-dry finish is moreish.

Klosterbrauerei Mallersdorf Vollbier Hell is a rich golden brew with grassy notes and a lingering semi-dry finish.
