Rothaus Beer Secrets Revealed!
Many people are puzzled as to why Rothaus beers taste so good. What’s the magic? Like any good magician, Rothaus doesn’t talk about how they capture the genies in the bottles. However, Andrew Morgan, Sales & Marketing Director, Black Forest Beers and member of the British Guild of Beer Writers is going to share some insights into the science behind the beer and why Rothaus tastes so good.
SPOILER ALERT. IF YOU WANT TO CARRY ON BELIEVING IN THE MAGIC, DON’T READ ON! WE’RE GOING TO SHARE SOME ROTHAUS SECRETS BELOW.
Why every beer is unique
Every brewery will tell you that what they do is unique, and they’re right. Every beer around the world is different. Every batch might even be different as brewers need to tweak recipes as the natural ingredients change from season to season.
Why Rothaus beer is specialWhen everything is unique, how does anything stand out as being special?
For Rothaus, there is one thing that makes them different from all the others. It’s the fact that the beer is brewed at almost 1,000 meters above sea level. This altitude means the water used in brewing boils at 97 degrees Celsius, not at 100 degrees as it does at sea level. The hops don’t get exposed to the extra temperature, meaning they react differently and create the truly unique character of Rothaus.
Add the natural Black Forest spring water, organic hops & malt, and a brewery that’s obsessed with detail and that’s what creates the magic in the glass. Like a jumbo jet taking off or a million-tonne container ship not sinking, the science seems impossible. With Rothaus, there’s still magic in every drop of their German beer, even if you know the secrets behind how it’s achieved.
So, when you’re choosing your next pint/bottle, remember that not all German beers are created equally...especially Rothaus.
