Hacker Pschorr is one of the big six Munich breweries and was founded in 1417 by monks before ending up in the hands of the Hacker Family. It wasn’t until 1793 when Joseph Pschorr married into the family that the brewery was put on the map. His two sons would go on to divide the brewery, taking over the two separate Hacker and Pschorr wings, which would prosper under their guidance. However, the Second World War led to the Pschorr brewery being bombed and Hacker then allowed Pschorr to brew at their brewery twice a week until the damage was repaired. Blood proved thicker than water and in 1972 the two breweries joined forces once again. Today the brewery is part of the Paulaner brand, but still operates independently.
All of Hacker Pschorr’s brews are produced in accordance with the German purity laws. This dunkel weizen is dark in colour with a hint of amber and a strong head. The aroma from the beer is that of apricots and cloves alongside the classic dark malt aroma. The sweet and spice from the dark malts mix sublimely with the subtle bitter hoppy notes. The selected wheat and barley varieties are just part of the secrets it holds within the brewery walls, especially the brewing process. The work they do ensures the top quality beer that has a velvety smooth character at just 5.3%, but is certainly as strong as it looks.
