Craft Beer

What makes a beer a good one? The most obvious though appropriate answer really is: When it’s delicious! But beer is a matter of taste and will always be and so everyone has to find his own favorite - this often depends on regional habits and initial drinking experiences. Therefore, we at Volta Bräu plead for diversity: On our taps we have up to 7 different home-brewed beers at a time ready for you to taste. Cheers.

  • 16 IBU | 8 EBC

  • malt: Carapils, Munich II, Carahell

Our Flagship: The Lager combines undertones of malt sweetness with a subtle floral hop aroma from Tettnanger Hops. It is light bodied and yet full in flavour. This beer with a refreshing finish is easy to drink and good companion for every opportunity.

  • hops: Centennial, Citra

  • 50 IBU | 4 EBC
  • hops: Simcoe, Amarillo, Mosaic & Cascade
