India Pale Ale (IPA) – Rowdy Rabbit
A very hoppy top-fermented beer. The hops dominate in this beer. In addition to the strong bitterness, there is also a hint of fruitiness.
Öpfelbier – Brewmaster Boar
The base for Öpfelbier is our light lager beer, supplemented with Otelfinger apple juice. A note of apple juice combined with a light, light beer. Delish!
Helles – Brewmaster Boar
A light but very tasty lager beer. Brewed with 50% Furttaler malt and 100% Furttaler hops. This beer was fermented with Old Hill´s own lager yeast.
