The brewery makes its presence known even before it can be seen; the fresh smell of malt in the air. In the brewery museum itself, the pile of malt, a copper kettle reaching to the ceiling; labyrinthine pipes and pressure gauges. Silvery tanks in a white-tiled room, orange hoses, as thick as an arm, and blue levers. Dozens of kegs stored in the semi darkness and bottles in a display case gradually transforming over the course of decades.
Stiegl-Bier continues to be brewed in the most modern brewhouse in Europe according to the original purity laws of 1516. Austria’s biggest private brewery invites visitors to explore ‘Stiegl-Brauwelt’ and learn more about the production and history of Stiegl-Bier – An interactive beer museum with its own cinema, yet another small brewery, several taverns and a Stiegl shop make Salzburg’s rich beer-brewing tradition a fascinating one-of-a-kind experience.
