Friday, February 16, 2024 - Strong beer tapping of the Hutthurm brewery

7:00 pm: Strong beer tapping by the Hutthurm brewery (with shuttle service) Historically, monks brewed strong beer as "liquid bread" for the barren Lenten period, which was even more barren than the rest of the year. Gradually, the nobility also took a liking to strong beer and history took its course.

We feel a strong connection with the Hutthurmer brewery and are enthusiastic about their art of brewing. We are all the more pleased that we can make it possible for our guests to take part in this event. You can look forward to music and dancing, the keynote speaker (Lenten preacher) and the Bavarian Beer Queen Mona Sommer.
