We Germans love our beer. So much that at present more than 1300 breweries in Germany can make a living of that loving. There’s a little bit of everything going; from one man shows to multi billion dollar enterprises. And two breweries even have ‘official status’ – being state owned! Amongst them is my all-time favorite: The Rothaus brewery in the deep south.
Rothaus is just too special. Since it’s founding in 1791 beer is continuously brewed here; befitting its rank with the purest crystal water from the on-site Black Forest spring. Promotion – they don’t need. Hip style – they don’t want. They stay true to themselves and that is what we cherish. Besides the splendid taste of their specialty brew “Tannenzäpfle” (little pine cone) it is our good friend Birgit who enchants us with every sip we take, smiling at us from the label – since 1956!
