Jahrhundert Bier

A delicious, malty export-style beer that was first brewed in 1978 for the 100th anniversary of the brewery.

The History of Jahrhundert Bier

The invention of refrigeration allowed lagers to be shipped long distances. Dortmund, in Westphalia, was the first German city to develop the "Dortmund" or "Export" style of brewing. This beer was first brewed to commemorate one century of brewing in Aying Bavaria, in 1978.


Golden, big herbaceous bouquet with a soft, medium body and a long lingering finish with dry hop tones.
