There is a lot to tell about Zillertal Bier. Our long history. Our brewing philosophy between tradition and innovation. Our vision for today and tomorrow. Discover our world and our values.
After the state of Tyrol suspended all honors in 2020, we were recently honored by the Regional Councilor for Economic Affairs Anton Mattle and District Captain Dr. Michael Brandl for our 520 year company anniversary and our related effort to the Tyrolean economy.
As the oldest private brewery in Tyrol, we are very happy and proud to be able to continue this long history.
As part of the “Tyrolean Success Stories”, companies, initiatives or projects are presented that are particularly exemplary in promoting sustainability and doing business responsibly.
At Zillertal Bier we brew the finest Tyrolean beer specialties with the best ingredients from intact nature. It is therefore a matter of course for us to deal responsibly with our valuable resources. For more than 500 years and 16 generations.
The nomination for the “Tirol Change Award 2020” confirms our efforts.
Mit den Tiroler Wirtshausbieren Imperial Hell und Imperial Zwickl sind ab sofort zwei einzigartige Bierspezialitäten exklusiv für die Tiroler Wirtshäuser erhältlich, die regionaler nicht sein könnten.
100% von Tiroler Bauern angebautes Getreide wird dabei von Tirols ältester Privatbrauerei zu feinen Bieren veredelt, die zu 100% in Tiroler Wirtshäusern ausgeschenkt werden.
Dieser authentische Tiroler Trinkgenuss zeigt Einheimischen und Gästen gleichermaßen: So schmeckt Tirol
That is why we are particularly proud of our spring-fresh mountain water from Zillertal. With 2.7 German degrees of hardness, it is perfect for brewing beer. Beer consists of more than 90% water. That is why our special water makes our beer specialties a unique drinking pleasure.
Malt gives our beer specialties their body. Austrian farmers therefore cultivate valuable grain for us according to the strictest guidelines, which is later malted into various types. A special, almost forgotten variety has been grown again for us in Tyrol since 2013: the Fisser Imperial barley. The farmers get four times the world market price and we have a very special ingredient for authentic Tyrolean beer enjoyment.
For us, hops are like green gold. They give our beer specialties their soul. That is why we only use the finest aroma varieties. Selected hop growers, with whom we have already had partnerships for generations, grow this valuable ingredient for us. The special Cascade variety, for example, is even grown exclusively for us in Mühlviertel. For the finest drinking pleasure, sip by sip.
