Ettaler Curator Doppelbock...$3.49 / pint
From one of the last authentic German monastic breweries Klosterbrauerei Ettal, Bavaria comes its famous Doppelbock Curator. As over the past years many of the classic bottom-fermenting Doppelbocks have been "adjusted" to make them "easier to drink", we have begged the monastery to re-brew for our U.S. customers its authentic recipe which was created in the years after 1330 when the monastery was established.
While its "everyday home version" is about 7% ABV, its historic brew goes back up to over 9%!
Ettaler Helles....$3.49 / pint
Klosterbrauerei Ettal is one of the very last remaining authentic German monastic breweries still operated and managed by its "true" owners, the monks of the Holy Rule of St. Benedict.
Since 1330 the monastery Kloster Ettal has lived and worked in accordance with the Holy Rule of St.Benedict. Since 1609, the monastery's own businesses - its brewery & distillery, and farming - have provided the funds to sustain its centuries-old buildings, art treasures and educational facilities.
Helles: German word for "pale lager", the German version of a "Session beer".
