German-style Zoiglbier

Zoiglbier is a style that originated in a small Bavarian town around 1415. Pilsner, Dark Munich, and Carafa II malts give this beer its reddish-orange hue, while small additions of Noble and Czech hop varieties lend an earthy spiciness and low bitterness. A member of the Zwickel/Kellerbier family this beer pours with a slight haze, but in this case hazy beer is not lazy beer!

The Zoigl itself is a sign displayed by brewers/pub owners to signify the availability of fresh hand crafted beer. It's 2 interlocking triangles represent first the “magic” of brewing; the points being Air, Water, and Fire. The points of the second stand for the ingredients Water, Malt, and Hops, as the importance of yeast was not yet realized.

With ChiStar (pronounced “scheister”) we link the ages-old tradition of brewing to our great and humble city whose flag is adorned with similar stars holding their own value, and the star which has come to be a strong symbol of our brewery.
