Brewer Edition: Porter
Our brewers Hermann W., Klemens N., Jakob B. und Jakob W. created a totally new beer in cooperation with our brew master Markus T.: a special brewer edition Porter!
From creating the recipe to brewing the beer including the design they worked together and
our great Porter was established.
The brewer edition is a deep dark, top fermented beer with intense roasted malts flavours. Its graceful whitecap fulfils a stunning appearance with the dark colour. Delicious to look at but even better to taste.
From now on the brewer edition will be brewed every year but we don’t want to keep things standard, so we stay excited what our brewers bring up next year.
Conrad Seidl & Markus Kafkavisit Hofstetten for TV report!
In a new beer report on “Servus TV,” hosts Conrad Seidl and Markus Kafka will be visiting St. Martin to brew the Granitbock with us! Before they can start mashing in, however, they will have to get the necessary ingredients.For this, they will need to travel to the “Erlebniswelt Granit” nature park, where the granite stones for the beer were historically harvested. Once this not-so-unrisky task has been completed, the stones will be heated over an open fire and tossed into 120-year-old stone vats, thus producing the unique caramel notes in the beer. To ensure they have a solid foundation for their Granitbock Vertical Tasting (2008-2012), reporter Markus will also bake rye bread with Hofstetten’s own Hilda beforehand.
