Beer Styles


Means "Munich-style". In international brewing terminology, this indicates a dark-brown lager, a style developed in Munich (although another Bavarian town, Kulmbach, also has a long tradition of dark lagers). In Munich, such a brew is clearly identified by the word Dunkel ("dark"), and classic examples have an alcohol content of around 5 percent by volume. Bavarian brewers in general also impart their own distinctively malty accent to their everyday, lower-gravity (alcohol content around 3.7) pale beers. These are sometimes identified as Munchner Hell, to distinguish them from the same brewers' Pilsener-style product.
