First modern brewery to use only organic ingredients. All hops and malt used are organically grown in Germany, and September – Organic Harvest Month – is the perfect time to toast 200 years of brewing.
A Toast to 200 Years of Brewing Excellence!
About Pinkus Brewery: The Pinkus-Müller Brewery traces its origins to the family's arrival in the German city of Münster in 1816, when Johannes Müller and his wife Friederika Cramer started a brewery and bakery. Since then, 150 breweries have opened in Münster; today, only Pinkus remains.
Currently the fifth and sixth generations of the family operate the Pinkus-Müller Brewery.
Their dedication to quality shows with every sip of their beer, but Pinkus was also the
first brewery of the modern era to make the commitment to full organic production - using
only organic malt and hops - in the 1980s, even before there were USDA organic food
standards. Today Pinkus holds USDA and ABCERT GmbH organic certification - a copy of the certification letter can be viewed here (199 KB .pdf).
Pinkus Münster Alt: Pale, golden color; excellent, herbaceous aroma, delicate fruit-acid palate, & long dry finish.
Pinkus Hefe-Weizen: Very light in body and color. Crisp, dry, spritzy, and refreshing unfiltered beer without the characteristic yeasty spiciness of a Bavarian wheat beer.
Pinkus Ur-Pils: Pale golden in color; light to medium in body; dry and well-balanced; clean hop and malt character.
