"Aventinus" Weizen Eisbock - dark unfiltered unpasteurized beer with a strong aroma and a rich, warm, like a wine taste. His creation is obliged beer case. Up until the 1940s, wheat doppelbock "TAP 6" Unser Aventinus - the most intense and complex wheat beer in the world, were transported to Bavaria in containers without temperature control. That beer is not spoiled by the way, a precious drink partially frozen for transportation, not knowing that by separating the water from the liquid beer becomes more concentrated. Thus was born the unique version of "Aventinus", but as a separate version of this beer style eisbocks not issued. Well aware of this story, Hans-Peter Drexler, brewer Schneider, decided to recreate it "wrong" beer in modern conditions, reviving its sixty years later.
Brewery G. Schneider & Sohn - the keeper of the ancient traditions of the manufacture of wheat beer - drink that from the time of Duke Maximilian I nearly 400 years was considered a privilege of the aristocracy and the upper class. For a long time in Germany the production of wheat beer was the exclusive right of the aristocratic family Degenberger Bogen. In 1856, Georg Schneider I bought from King Ludwig II of Bavaria, the exclusive right to manufacture wheat unfiltered beer, and produce it in a rented factory in Weissen Hofbrauhauses in 1855-1873 years.
In 1872, Schneider father with his son Georg Schneider II founded the G. Schneider & Sohn, buying one of the oldest breweries in Munich - Maderbrau, where it was first produced beer under the name Schneider Weisse. It was the first and the world's oldest registered trademark of wheat beer. Each successive generation of the family Schneider strengthen the brand Schneider Weisse.
By the outbreak of World War I, Schneider & Son became the largest brewery for the production of wheat beer in southern Germany. The postwar years were difficult for the brewing industry, as more than half of the Bavarian factories closed. But Schneider survived and even bought a few breweries in Munich, Straubing, as well as "Weisse Brauhaus" in Kelheim, where the production of Schneider Weisse move after the Second World War, during which the factory building of G. Schneider & Sohn will be destroyed by the bombing.
Nowadays brewery G. Schneider & Sohn led by Georg Schneider VI successfully combines tradition and innovation, consistently adhering to high quality standards. Beer production company selects only the best Bavarian malt, hops from the Hallertau valley and mountain water from the surrounding rocks.
Today in Bavaria no more "Bavarian" beer producer than Schneider Weisse. Bavarians themselves very fond of him and proud of it, and it enjoys a special honor at the elite Bavarian society.
