Kellerbier


What is Kellerbier?

Kellerbier translates as Cellar beer.

"Kellerbier or Zwickelbier (sometimes Zoigl(bier)) is an unfiltered beer, often a lager which is not clarified or pasterurised probably originated from Germany. In comparison with most of the today's beer sorts, this kind of beer contains more of its original yeast and more of the valuable nutritional substances. It is often served directly from the barrel or bottled. In Germany this beer is described by manufacturers as naturtrĂ¼b (naturally cloudy).
Originally Zwickelbier was a sample amount of beer taken by a brewery boss from the barrel with a help of a special pipe, so-called Zwickelhahn. Nowadays (2007) in Germany it is commercially available in big amounts, usually as a bottom-fermented, but often also as a top-fermented (Kellerweizen)." -- wikipedia.com

This is one of the best beers out there. The only problem is finding it! I have cleared the entire St. Louis area out of the pint bottles (about 30 in total) and can't find any more.
