Doppelbocks

With alcohol concentrations ranging from 7.0% to over 9.0% by volume, the doppelbock (double bock) is simply a stronger version of the traditional bock style. They range from a dark gold to a dark brown color and tend to be sweet and malty with little detectable hops and a noticeable alcohol flavor.

Pilsners

Simplicity has been the key to the pilsner’s success. Lightly kilned malt barley, noble hops, lager yeast and water yield a clean, simple bier that is similar to a traditional lager. German pilsners tend to be lighter, earthier and have a slighlty lower alcohol concentration that lager.

Kolsch

The German-style Kolsch is light in color and malt character. This style’s fermentation process yields a light, vinous character which is accompanied by a slightly dry, crisp finish. Ale yeast is used for fermentation, though lager yeast is sometimes used in the bottle or final cold-conditioning process.

Weissbiers

Weissbier, or wheat bier, is the only German bier style that is technically an ale. All others are lagers. Weissbiers replace a hefty amount of malted barley with malted wheat and use a special strain of yeast, which gives the bier its characteristic banana and clove flavor. Hefeweizens, or unfiltered wheat biers, are typically cloudy with an orange tint, and Dunkelweizens are their dark wheat counterparts.

Lagers

Fermented and conditioned at low temperatures, German lagers tend to be simple, clean biers with a light aroma and flavor. Although light lagers are the most popular, color can range from a pale yellow to a dark brown.

Seasonals

Oktoberfests (fall): Oktoberfest biers, also known as Märzens, are typically full-bodied brews with a rich flavor profile and a mild hop presence. Color can range from pale yellow, like Hofbräu Oktoberfest, to a darker amber color, much like Spaten and Paulaner’s versions, which are now available year-round.

Triple Hop’d Lager: Bitburger’s and Sierra Nevada’s collective expertise on hops has allowed us to create a light-golden and natural Triple Hop’d Lager with a fine-poured white head of foam. Triple Hop’d Lager is brewed from three hop varieties – Cascade from the Eifel region in Germany and Centennial and Chinook from the USA – and refined with the ‘Bitburger Siegelhopfen,‘ our own seal hops blend. Our collaboration brew is an exciting mix that combines a fruity hop taste with a balanced bitter-malty flavor.
