Now and new: The Weiherer OSw-Alt

Created on Oct 9, 2020

In March 2020 Oswald Kundmüller turned 50 years old. The celebration could not take place due to Corona, but the Weiherer staff still insisted on brewing a birthday beer as a gift for their boss.

Already three years ago, the „Rolator“ was created for Roland Kundmüller´s birthday, a Doppelbock - play on words included. This time, too, the team around master brewer Michael Popp allowed free play to their creativity and brewed an Altbier - its name is a mixture of Ossi´s first name and the beer style - OSw-Alt.

Since barrels were left over due to the canceled birthday party, the OSw-Alt was on tap in the beer garden of the brewery-inn in early summer, „with a very positive response,“ as master brewer Michael Popp remembers. Therefore the management decided spontanously to send the beer to the Meininger International Craft Beer Awards competition. The result: The Weiherer OSw-Alt was promptly awarded the gold medal.

For this reason it was more than clear: the ranconian Altbier must definitively be included in the Weiherer Special Brew range. And as the original brew was already brewed with raw materials grom organic farming, the Weiherer OSw-Alt is now an officially certified organic beer.

Altbier is a dark, top-fermented type of beer that is traditionally brewed in North Rhine-Westphalia / in the greater area of Düsseldorf. The OSw-Alt, on the other hand, comes from Franconia and we call it Franconia Altbier for a reason. In the classical beer styles, the Franconian palate often doesn’t like the bitterness, which is why the OSw-Alt has just a little of the bitter taste. In the nose and on the palate, this deep brown beer convinces with its fine nutty-malty aroma, with a hint of raisins in the taste. Its light body and straight lines make it a very drinkable beer. A beer for lovers of dark beer styles with a rounded taste and character.
