Pale ale has enjoyed a long tradition
The British brewed the first pale ale in around 1700 – it is the generous hops content that gives this top-fermented beer its slightly bitter taste. In those days, the British brewed their beer from light malt. Shrewd master brewers, however, kept developing it to produce a variety of pale ales with a range of flavours and alcohol contents. Stiegl’s master brewer Christian Pöpperl has also been experimenting with pale ale for some time now. He and his team created, for example, Stiegl’s house beer “Weltenbummler” and Stiegl’s 2012 vintage – a double Indian pale ale.
“Thanks to these jewels of brewing, we are able to make our contribution to beer variety, ensuring that beer connoisseurs and experts can sample whole new worlds of flavour,” explains Stiegl master brewer Christian Pöpperl. This particular jewel is brewed with ingredients sourced 100% from Austria.
