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».
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. Unfiltered and crisp! A light, yet aromatic, full-bodied beer. Brewed from Pilsner malt, slightly caramelised, with hops from Tettnang and the Hallertau.
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».
