Our hop - soul of Beer
The hops was established in Germany around the year 1000 as
a medicinal plant. The monks and nns took advantage of the
erennial climber, not medically, rather for the preservation of
drinks. The hoppy Beer is their invention.
Hops gives Beer its bitter taste and at the same time ensures the
foamy crown. Our bremasters use the select”Hallertau”
aromatic hops in the different Varieies of: “Tradition” for the
fine bitters, “Select” for the discreet citrus notes and
“Saphir” for a spicy floral bouquet.
Our water -source of life
We place the highest demands on our water, at 90%
the most important raw material in our Beers.
The crystal clear water from our on water protection
area in Rednitzauen is one of the reasons for the excellent
and taste of our Beers.
Our Malt - heart of Beer
Depending on the characteristics and the mix - the malt provides
a distinctive flavor variety and abundance.
We at Tucher brew - true to our philosophy - only with malts from
classified grain varieties such as “Marhte”, “Grace” or
“Prestige” … this way each beer gets its own character in taste
The variety of colors ranging from bright gold tones and chestnut
with red highlights to a deep sparkling black-brown. Also the
malt variety decides the feel and taste in the mouth and on the
tongue - full bodied, spicy, soft and rounded.
Our Yeast - no fermentation without it …
First, the yeast ensures the alcoholic fermentation.
What sounds simple, requires technical skill, but above
all the sensitive touch of our “Yeast Master”. As a
specialist he selects each perfect yeast culture for our
With our special Brewer’s yeast we ensure a consistent
high quality. Therefore, the bottom-fermented yeast
and the top-fermented “Sapienza master yeast” for our
Beers are choosen from our own “purebreads”.
The Purity Law for Beer …
We, at Tucher, are rooted and commited to our craft and the
oldest food law in the world - The Purity Law for Beer - this
law was proclaimed by the bavarian Duke Wilhelm IV on the
23rd of April 1516 in Ingoldstadt, Germany.
Until this date it is said that there were the most adventorous
ideas to give Beer a special taste. The addition of herbs, Jimson
weed and mushrooms has been reported. Since the adoption
of the “Purity Law”, brewed Beer may only contain water, hops
and barley. Yeast cultures were not classified since they were
not used at this time.
