Årets andre tyske bryggeri kommer fra den historiske byen Bamberg, i regionen Franken, helt nord i Bayern. Bamberg huser hele 9 særegne bryggerier innenfor bygrensen (fordelt på kun 70.000 innbyggere), noe som sies å være den største tettheten av bryggerier i verden. Bryggeriene i Bamberg er også kjent for det svært varierte utvalget av særegne ølstiler. Av byens ni bryggerier, så er vi veldig glad for at det er nettopp Mahrs Bräu som kommer til Hammerfest.
WE ARE A BAMBERGER BREWERY!
HOME, RESPONSIBILITY, SUSTAINABILITY
Home? Home is a good beer, a hardy meal and a cozy place that brings on a sense of well-being. It’s an enormous gift! But above all, it’s a responsibility. We have accepted this responsibility for quite some time now. Because we can only guarantee and protect the quality of our brewing, as well as the unique flavor of our beers, when we dedicate ourselves to the proper ingredients.
This requires a respect for nature and the awareness that we have a damn obligation to conduct our business responsibly and sustainably. After all, we are not alone. And we want to give something back to the region that raised us.
We specifically select raw goods and ingredients from impartially certified cultivators. They are not carted in from somewhere outside of the region, but rather, they’re from the Franken Jura or other grows inside Bavaria. For example, we receive our malt exclusively from the Bamberg Malt-house and Malt-house Steinach, Zirndorf. “Home is simply at home.”
However, buying locally is just one part of our environmental commitment. We took measures 30 years ago to ensure our dedication to environmental protection. Modern technology provides us with a sustainable and conscientious use of resources. Our own environmental management system reinforces and secures our efforts. And, of course, everything is running on green energy
Well sure, we could always do it the cheaper, easier way. But that’s not the way we operate.
DISTINCTIVE, UPSTANDING AND GENUINE
WHAT DEFINES US AS A BREWER
Tradition and craftsmanship – for us, these are not just selling points, and most definitely not myth. We are a family owned and operated business, run with conviction and passion for over four generations. We’ve been doing it simply for the sheer pleasure and enjoyment of our work. And because we have a very specific idea of what an outstanding beer must have: Character.
We leave the cheap beer to the mass production industry. We don’t get bent out of shape over producing a few more hectoliters. On the contrary, we are a proud, yet not sooo small, private brewery in Upper Franconia. For centuries we have been calling Bamberg’s Wunderburg our home. Family-owned and firmly rooted in the region since 1895. Then, as now, committed to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516. We enjoy our success, but always remain fully aware of our responsibility.
We work with confidence in our age-old craft, and can therefore keep a clear head for the present. We are inquisitive and move forward with new ideas for the future. Because, when it’s all said and done, pairing the art of our brewing tradition with the sophistication modern technology (along with the occasional surprise) you can truly taste the difference in each of our nine Mahrs beers.
