GWC's Beer-Tasting

German brewing tradition appears to be a historic heritage, that had a global impact as a cornerstone for the development of the craft as such. And while many innovative impulses come from elsewhere nowadays, beer is still a major part of German culture and identity.

But how is beer actually made, what does Reinheitsgebot mean and is a purity law still appropriate after 500 years after its declaration? Let’s take a cheerful dive into Germany’s fluid culture together with a senior beer sommelier from Fermentos Beertastings.

We’ll take a look at three different classic German beers, that you may purchase in an ordinary supermarket, highlighting the topic from different perspectives (sensual, socio-economic, historic,…).

The event will take place on 26th January, 7 p.m. via Zoom

To take part in this exclusive event and receive the names of the  three beers we will degust please register with an e-mail to the following address until 21.01.2021:
