Mühlen Fastenbier on tap at the BRAUWELT Köln.

Mühlen Fastenbier im Ausschank der BRAUWELT Köln Brauwelt Köln


In remembrance of the monks' fasting period from Ash Wednesday to Easter, we revived and brewed this traditional Rhineland specialty several years ago.

The beer style is characterized by its malt-forward flavor and fuller body, making it ideal for bridging the fasting period according to the motto "Liquid does not break the fast."

Food pairing recommendation for those not participating in fasting: our homemade sauerbraten. For those fasting: a second glass of Fastenbier!

Alcohol percentage: 5.4%

ABV Flavors: Caramel, cocoa

Brewing style: Top fermentation, unfiltered
