The Mainfranken Bier PGI is exclusively produced with water, malt, hop and yeast.
The production area of the Mainfranken Bier PGI is in the region of Lower Franconia, in the federal state of Bavaria.
The wort is obtained mixing water and previously ground malt. Hop is added and the mixture is brought to the right temperature. According to the temperature degree reached, the beer produced will be stronger or weaker. After cooling, yeast is added, provoking the transformation of sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide. Finally, the obtained product can be filtered or left as it is.
Appearance and Flavour
The Mainfranken Bier PGI can vary from pale to dark, according to the variety, and the flavour can be more or less bitter. The alcoholic content can vary between 1 and 7% ABV.
The Mainfranken Bier PGI is the result of an old tradition. In fact, the origins of beer brewing in the Mainfranken region date back to 1381. Since then, thanks mostly to the strict observance of the traditional methods, the beers of the region have a great and well-deserved fame.
In order to maintain its characteristics unaltered, the beer should be kept in a cool yet not cold place, away from direct light sources, which modify the aroma and flavour, and at a constant temperature. It is recommended to cool it in the refrigerator or, however, to keep it at lower temperatures only before serving it. Once opened, it is recommendable to consume the beer within a short period of time, since contact with the air causes oxidation. The Mainfranken Bier PGI is best enjoyed cool.
The product is sold as Mainfranken Bier PGI. It is marketed in glass bottles.
The uniqueness of the Mainfranken Bier PGI is due mainly to the high quality and the accurate processing of the raw materials used: water, barley and malt originating from the production area.
