The name «Heller Engel», translated "light angel", for our first beer was inspired by the Teufelhof mother house. This beer is dedicated to angels, God-sent helpers indeed. Under this concept we brew a light, unfiltered beer.
CHARACTERISTICS OF «Heller Engel»
Unfiltered and crisp! A light, yet aromatic, full-bodied beer.
Brewed from Pilsner malt, slightly caramelised, with hops from Tettnang and the Hallertau.
BE BLESSED, DRINK ANGELS!
In the biblical sense, Lucifer, the devil, is a fallen angel who no longer wanted to subject himself to divine rule. The name was derived from the Teufelhof mother house and is brewed as a dark beer. The "Dunkler Teufel", translated "dark devil", is expected to be presented in June 2017.
BE TEMPTING, DRINK THE DEVIL!
Local water from Basel, Pilsner malt and a little bit of sour malt are providing the basis for the pilsner-type lager beer.
The magnum hops from Hallertau are responsible for the hoppy and bitter taste in the finish, so you see in the opposite of the «Engel», a real «Bengel».
Be naughty, drink Bengel!
