Brewed by Brauerei Ganter
August 28, 1865, saw the birth of the Ganter brewery when the 24 year old Ludwig Ganter founded his micro brewery in the center of Freiburg.
Today the brewery remains an independent and traditional family enterprise, rooted in the city of Freiburg and the southern Baden region, and using nothing but only the best locally and regionally sourced ingredients in their beers.
The brewery has also seen massive development in recent years, with an ultra-modern and resource-efficient bottling plant, to become one of the most modern medium-sized breweries in Germany while at the same time making progress with ecological brewery, using solar panels, organic brewing techniques and efficiency measures to cut down on wasteful energy, all tying in with the image of Freiburg as an “Eco city”
Review: 0,33l flip-top Bottle of Ganter Urtrunk beer: ABV: 4.9%
Coming in a cool swing/flip top bottle with an interesting label, the beer apparently uses the same recipes that go way back to the founder Louis Ganter
On pour we get a nice light golden yellow looking beer, with a decent sized head that looks nice, but dies a little afterwards. No lacing
Has a very nice beery smell, yeast filling the nose, nice……..
On the taste….well it is very tasty that’s for sure, very hoppy as well
Sessionable beer, smooth in the front end and easy to drink. Bit of a bitter aftertaste which is interesting but manageable, it is a very tasty beer. A nice amount of malts, and has a lemon edge to it which wasn’t bad, I liked it.
Overall I liked this beer, very drinkable, very nice to taste with spices, the lemon, the grains, all noted. A nice and relaxing beer, and would have drank a few more than the two I bought….
