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.
