Dailytapping of wooden barrels
Light beer in a genuine oak barrel is celebrated as the pinnacle of Bavarian beer and pub culture – at Augustiner an der Frauenkirche too naturally.
With pride we tap a 30-litre oak barrel virtually every day and serve you our light beer from it. Tapped with powerful blows and freshly poured, it is a speciality for every beer drinker.
Our light beer from the wooden barrel is easier to drink and digest thanks to its reduced carbonic acid content. It pours slowly and only with the pressure of its own weight fresh and cool from the barrel. That is what accounts for the particularly mild taste beer connoisseurs appreciate so much about beer from a wooden barrel.
Apart from that, wooden barrels simply create a good ambience. Serving beer from a wooden barrel makes a key contribution to the traditional atmosphere at Augustiner an der Frauenkirche. The wooden barrels are visible for all guests, are tapped on so-called Ganter units and each new barrel is celebrated by way of the old bell-ringing ritual.
Come round and test it for yourself …
|When:||During the summer from 6 p.m.|
Our first Dresden beer sommelier Herbert Berger confirms: there is at least as much to tell about beer as there is about wine! The sommelier intends passing on his comprehensive knowledge at beer seminars.
There are three seminar types on offer, ranging from the small one with five beer types through to the large one where participants get to taste at least six beers. We are confident that even absolute beer beginners will be convinced of the qualities of our so-called “barley juice” (beer).
During the Munich Oktoberfest, the original Augustiner Wiesn beer - a particularly long stored, spicy and tasty beer, which supplies Munich's oldest brewery in the barrel, is served with us.
There are the typical Bavarian delicacies from Brezn on white sausage to Backhendl and Obatzda.
Our Oktoberfest Special:
14.09., 20.09. & 21.09 - live music each from 18-22 clock pinch player
