Schell’s Anniversary Series #7 – Roggenbier

OG 14 Plato
IBU 15

Do you love Dunkleweizen? How about rye beers? If the answer is “yes,” you’re going to want to get your hands on Schell’s Anniversary Series #7- Roggenbier.

Roggenbiers are a German specialty beer originally brewed in Regensberg, Bavaria. They were quite popular at one time; these days, however, they are very rare.

Schell Roggenbier is fermented with Schell’s very special Hefe yeast. The flavor profile is reminiscent of cloves, bananas, vanilla, a dash of chocolate, and the spicyness of malted rye.

The release date for Schell Roggenbier is July 5, 2009, commemorating the birthday of Al Marti, President of August Schell Brewing from 1934-1969.

    July 5th is my birthday also….I must find a release party. Of coarse, I think the 5th is a Sunday. Hmmmmm.

    Make sure you guys are rating and voting for each on the Schell’s website. I’m assuming this voting will help determine the winner and the one that will be remade for the 150th anniversary brew.

    SO far the #3 is my favorite – The Damfbier. This would be a great one to brew simply cause it’s SOOOOO unique and different from what else they brew!!! It was really refreshing and had a GREAT taste!

    Very much enjoyed this in the 500 Pub in Mankato on the way from Mpls to Worthington Juy 24. Just delicious. So we had to stop there on the way back, too. I do some home brewing so working on a recipe for my own version. Looking for insight on the percent of rye in the grist and the hop variety
