Stiegl Brewery, famous for more than 500 years in the Austrian town of Salzburg, is one of Austria's top independent breweries making a rangeof top quality continental beer styles.
This evening we will delve into their illustrious archives tasting one-off vintage beer releases of their Sonnenkonig range from 2015 through to 2020, that were made in Stiegl's ‘Hausbier Brewery’ where small batch seasonal and yearly specials are lovingly created by Markus Trinker, their Creative Head Brewer who also leads the farm brewery Stiegl-Gut Wildshut.
We are very proud to say that this is the first time a vertical tasting of these beers will be taking place in the UK, fine artisanal styles ranging from Wit to Double IPA to Scotch Ale and Russian Imperial Stout. These beers are extraordinarily rare, with the 2015 release no longer even available in Stiegl's own tasting cellar stocks.
We will be guided through the illustrious range of the Sun King by Martyn Railton, founder of specialist beer importer Euroboozer, and it is shaping up to be the beer highlight of the year for us!
·Euroboozer are also hoping to present the first UK tasting of the latest 2021 release, Stiegl Sonnonkonig VIII, a Tokaji Barrel Aged Saison, logistics and transport permitting!
