Beer details:

Freigeist Abraxxxas (30L) Weissbier, smoked  6%ABV
   Freigeist is lead by head brewer Sebastian Sauer, a very young but accomplished brewer. Freigeist started in Köln in the Braustelle Brewery, where they still brew, but has expanded to brewing at Göller Brewery located in Bavaria. Sebastian is intrigued by the old forgotten German beer styles that have been lost to the ocean of Pils and Helles over the past 100 years. His Abraxxxas is a historic recreation of the long lost Lichtenhainer style -- a slightly sour smoked wheatbeer. Many beers would have tasted like this in the days before pale malting technology, when most all malts had at least a somewhat smokey character imparted by open wood fire malting.

Freigeist Ottekolong Kölsch (30L) Kölsch, unfiltered  4.8%ABV
   This is probably the freshest tasting imported Kölsch style beer that you will taste, possibly due to it being unfiltered. With a touch more body than traditional Kölschbiers and with full flavor, it still quenches with refreshing lightness.

Füchschen Alt (30L) traditional altbier  4.8%ABV
   Altbier, the famous Düsseldorfer style ale, so rare in Germany. With it's regal mahogany color and rich malt flavor, this is one of the few old regional styles of beer from Germany that has weathered the near total take-over of Pilsner style.

Mahr's Ungespundet Lager (Kellerbier) Keg (50L) Unfiltered Lager  5.2%ABV
  Mahr's is an old family brewery in the heart of Franconia -- Bamberg, the brewing
center to Northern Bavaria. This unfiltered cellar beer is classic of traditional rustic lagers, full of life, flavor, and satisfaction. The Mahr's Gasthaus dates back to 1670, and is currently run by a descendent of the founder.

Mönchshof Kellerbier Keg (30L) Unfiltered Lager  5.4%ABV
  "Monks Haven" was once a Cloister brewery, where holy suds were made by the brothers. The tradition has been preserved and passed on through their rich, malt forward lager brews that harken back to times of castles and knights.

Weissenohe Eucharias Zwickel Pils Gravity Keg (20L) - #3 Unfiltered Pils
  There is nothing as traditional as a keg of unfiltered lager that gets tapped with a hammer, and drains naturally from atop the bar till every Stein is happily kräusened with a thick tan head floating on a half-liter of liquid bread.

Weissenohe Mönchskeller (30L) Märzen  5.4%ABV
  Founded in 1050 by Benedictine monks, Weissenhohe ("along the white stream") respects the Reinheitsgebot and everything else sacred in the traditional brewing of classic German lager. This Märzen Festbier will make you appreciate the beauty and wonder of old world workmanship in such a simply crafted masterpiece.
