Rye Sense of Humour - Roggenbier Germany Rye Ale 4.5%


A cloudy coppery-brown beer with bready, spicy rye flavours and a creamy body. Roggenbier is a rarely seen German beer style made with large amounts of rye grain. Its scarcity could be due to the Reinheitsgebot (German Beer Purity Law) prohibiting the use of rye in beer between the 1500s and 1980s. Or just as likely because brewing with rye results in a gummy, sticky mash and a long frustrating brew day. Luckily this didn’t stop us and we think the results were worth the effort!
