Our fourth beer, the «Schlingel» is double hopped and has a higher alcohol content. The strong hop emphasis and top fermentation of the IPA are characteristics of this beer style, but the strong hop bitterness is even more memorable. India Pale Ale impresses with its fruity note and its extremely strong taste.
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».
