A beer made out of tradition

Back to the roots: The brewery C. & A. Veltins revives its venerable knowledge in the craft of beer brewing with its new beer brand Grevensteiner Original – Inspired by the traditional brewing of the twins Carl and Anton Veltins during the beginning of the last century. The beer shines palely amber coloured with orange reflections from inside the mug with the family brewerys’ more than 100 year old lettering style as an ornament. The brewery C. & A. Veltins has been associated with the historical and bulbous Steinie bottle for decades. That is why the traditional Steinie bottle, the historically appearing label, as well as the sealing on the crown cork brings the history and long tradition to life in a modern product.

Grevensteiner Original taste

The beer presents itself in a palely amber colour with orange reflections and a mellow soft head. The complex flavour is firstly dominated by caramel with a slight undertone of honey, roasted almonds, and fresh fruity flavours that bring tastes of green apple to mind. Grevensteiner Original appears very crisp and elegant despite its round and malty-sweet body. A smooth toasty character paired with nutty flavours opens a distinctive finale, which unfolds impressions of butterscotch.
