Analysis

Just 25 kilometers to the southeast of Munich lies the small, 1,200 year-old village of Aying. The great Beers from Ayinger have been available in the US for more than two decades. Our BOW, the great Jahrhundert-Bier was first created in 1978 to celebrate the brewery's 100th anniversary. Recently it has been made available in cask in the US.

How to Enjoy

Serve chilled in a tall glass. It pairs so well roasted pork and the earthy notes marry well with roasted mushrooms.
