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.

LAGER

First base

  • bottom-fermented
  • alcohol content 4,8%
  • 16 IBU | 8 EBC
  • hops: Tettnanger
  • malt: German Pale, Munich, Crystal10

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.

RED ALE

Jersey 

  • top-fermented
  • alcohol content 5,4%
  • 27 IBU | 44 EBC
  • hops: Tettnanger, Willamette, Cascade
  • malt: German Pale, Munich, Crystal60, Crystal20, Wheat, CaraAmber, Pale Chocolate

We were on our way to Ireland but got stuck on those beautiful Channel Island. Light Maltbody, caramel sweetness & wild hop bitters. That`s our beer-interpretation of the island, which is exposed to the Atlantic Ocean.

BITTER ALE

Beat Ale

  • alcohol content 5.8%
  • 55 IBU | 32 EBC
  • hops: Progress, Fuggles

Our brewer has taken a lesson from the college rye developed "progress" hops and created this bitter ale for you.

WHITE IPA

FOLLOW THE WHITE RABBIT

  • top-fermented
  • alcohol content 5,5%
  • 50 IBU | 4 EBC
  • hops: Summit, Amarillo, Citra & Cascade
  • malt: German Pale, Wheat, Crystal10, Wheatflakes

Smooth and fruity like a wheat beer & exotically bitter like an American IPA: That's basically all we want to say about it. Except that: It's become a real awesome one!

CALIFORNIA COMMON

Nebbia

  • alcohol contet 4,8%
  • 26 IBU | 16 EBC
  • hops: Northern Brewer, Crystal 

The california common is brewed with special bottom fermenting yeasts. During fermentation, a strong steam is created which contributes to the naming.

PORTER

Uncomplicated

  • top-fermented
  • alcohol 5,7%
  • 37 IBU | 96 EBC
  • hops: Challenger, Cascade, Pilgrim
  • malt: German Pale, Munich, Crystal10, Crystal20, Pale Chocolate, Wheat, Wheatflakes

The uncomplicated Porter is a dark, top-fermented beer with distinct roast aromas. Despite the distinct malt density, this beer is very accessible & refreshing.

WHEAT

Grano Ravanelli

  • alcohol content 4,9%
  • 16 IBU | 5 EBC
  • hops: Tettnanger, Perle

Fine, fresh and summery it has become long awaited wheat.
There is really nothing more to say.
