Style: Keller Bier / Zwickel Bier
Style Information
Kellerbier or Zwickelbier are unfiltered and unpasteurized versions of German beers (usually a lager). The name "Kellerbier" translates from German as "cellar beer". Traditional Kellerbiers are unfiltered and not fully lagered versions of German lagers. The color varies depending on the base style. The aroma and flavor should have a notable amount of bready yeast notes, along with the tones originally from the base style. More modern versions of Kellerbiers are merely unfiltered versions of other lagers. They are fully lagered, and have all the characteristics of the base style. ABV and IBUs vary depending on the base style.

"In comparison with most of the today's beer sorts, this kind of beer contains more of its original yeast and more of the valuable nutritional substances. It is often served directly from the barrel (for example, in a beer garden) or bottled. In Germany this beer is described by manufacturers as naturtrüb (naturally cloudy)."
