Bierol craft beer brewery (Attraction in Schwoich --> 10 min. by car)

Bierol craft beer brewery

Boundaries are there to be crossed. That's something that Maximilian Karner, Christoph Bichler and Marko Nikolic agree on. These three beer brewing fans from Schwoich have been mixing up the Austrian craft beer scene since 2014. With unusual beer creations that classic breweries don't dare brew. True to their motto: life is too short to always drink the same beer.

At the end of 2012, after Peter Bichler opened his private brewery in a district of Kufstein, his son Christoph came back from an internship in the USA with an unusual idea. He had discovered craft beer. Once back home he got going straight away. His school friend Maximilian Karner joined up as an accomplice. In their free time they experimented with various types of hops and malt. Very much in keeping with the craft beer scene, which was formed in America 30 years ago. It's a counter movement to the similarity of beers available from industrial breweries. However nothing about the brewing process changes: they create a mash of spring water and malt. The starch in the malt changes into sugar during the mashing process. Then it is filtered out and fed to the neighbour's cows. The liquid is boiled with hops. Depending on the type, this hops is responsible for the bitterness of the beer, but also for aromas such as mango and grapefruit. Depending on the taste of the brew master. This is the difference compared to other beers: "We want to brew aromatic beer, which we think tastes good", explains Christoph Bichler. The mixture is then mixed with yeast, and cooled. The yeast transforms the sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide. The finished beer rests for up to six weeks before being filled into bottles. Tyrol's first craft beer brewery emerged step by step.
