Schneider Weisse is a specialist Bavarian wheat beer brewery with a range of modern German wheat beers. Founded in Munich by Georg Schneider in 1872, the brewery is still owned and managed by sixth-generation Schneider family brewers. Schneider Weisse beers are a masterful marriage of Bavarian brewing tradition with creative flair. The range spans a multitude of flavours, colours and strengths – plenty for the craft beer connoisseur to explore.
Widely regarded throughout the beer world for their quality and flavour, Schneider Weisse beers are hand-crafted according to traditional methods from Bavarian ingredients. Almost all raw materials come from the nearby Hallertau region, the uplands of Franconian ‘Jura’ and the area near Munich called ‘Straubinger Gauboden’.
Traditional open-top fermenting vessels allow the yeast to breathe and develop soft, multi-faceted flavours in the beer. After fermentation, the beer goes straight from the tank into bottles without any filtration or heating, ensuring no ounce of flavour is lost. A small amount of yeast is added to the bottle to allow natural carbonation to develop and flavours to continue to mature and mellow.
