In a nation renowned for brewing excellence, Ayinger are one of Germany’s benchmarks. Owned and operated by the same family since 1878, they’re a prime example of the small, industrious brewing enterprise that makes Bavarian beer a touchstone for quality worldwide.

Bavarian culture doesn’t just emphasise great beer, but celebrates ideals worth striving for. Produced in the picturesque Alpine town of Ayinger, their regional beer styles are the ‘cement’ that binds the community together, helping build deep roots and forge lasting connections. Something we could all do with a bit more of these days.

Traditional-style recipes such as Lager Hell, and unfiltered Kellerbier sit alongside celebrated cult classic Ayinger Celebrator, an award winning, hearty Doppelbock.

Only one in ten Ayinger beers make it out of Germany, making a dark brown bottle of Urweisse or Maibock found lurking behind the bar a prize worth coveting.

Altbairisch Dunkel

Altbairisch Dunkel

Style: Dark lager
ABV: 5.0%

Up until the Second World War, dark beer was the predominant beer type in the Munich area. The hard water found in the region played a special role in producing this specialty. In his book 'Beer International', the world-renowned English beer writer, Michael Jackson, accurately describes the Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel as: A good example of its kind. Impenetrably dark with a golden-brown gleam when held up to the light, and with a warm aroma and malty taste, while summoning up coffee taste sensations on going down. It is brewed from five types of malt (two of which are torrified dark), and it is only lightly hopped. It is produced using the traditional double fermentation process.

Celebrator

Style: Doppelbock
ABV: 6.7%

A beer that has a dominant malty taste. This beer's origins in a monk's recipe are reflected in its heartiness. The Pope of Beers, Conrad Seidl, describes it as: Almost black with a very slight red tone, a sensational, festive foam and truly extraordinary fragrance that at first summons up visions of greaves lard. The first taste is of mild fullness with an accompanying coffee tone, which becomes more dominant with the aftertaste. There is very little of the sweetness that is frequently to be tasted with doppelbock beer. The Ayinger Celebrator has been ranked among the best beers of the world by the Chicago Testing Institute several times and has won numerous medals.

Jahrhundert Bier

Jahrhundert Bier

Style: Dortmunder Export
ABV: 5.5%

This beer was first brewed in 1978 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our brewery. It has a golden-yellow color with a slightly flowery yeast, honey-ish aroma, tastes a little spicy and is full-bodied in initial taste, mild before swallowing and soft with a refined sparkle and fades with a well-balanced hint of bitterness. It is an especially drinkable and harmonious beer. Conrad Seidl, known as the Austrian 'Pope of Beers', on the Jahrhundert Bier: It is a malty beer that pronounces the precious earthy quality of malted barley.

Kellerbier

Style: Unfiltered kellerbier
ABV: 4.9%

This nostalgic beer specialty, which can be confidently ranked among the traditional old Bavarian beers, is brewed in commemoration of the good old times and in honor of the brewery's founder, Johann Liebhard. The special feature of the 'Kellerbier' is the fine yeasty cloudiness and the pleasantly bitter taste. As it is bottled unfiltered, many of the natural protein, yeast and hop elements remain contained in the beer. It consequently retains its original character and the beer connoisseur can appreciate the fullness of taste that this very drinkable beer offers. Furthermore, the vitamin and mineral-rich yeast also provides a significant contribution to the nutritional requirements of good health.

Lager Hell

Lager Hell

Style: Helles lager
ABV: 4.9%

Ayinger Lager Hell is the typical every day drink in Bavaria. Together with wheat beer this Muenchener Hell style is the most famous beer style in the Bavarian south. As people in Bavaria are very demanding as far as their daily drink is concerned the brewers are very aware of the necessity to brew a yellow-golden beer with a light malt taste. It is crisp, smooth and mellow. A perfectly balanced taste and aroma.
