Albert is an alpaca. But not just any alpaca: Albert has been working diligently and with great motivation in the Bierothek® team for years. In contrast to his colleagues, however, Albert had not found a beer in the wide range of the Bierothek® that really appealed to him. A solution had to be found, because nothing is more sad than the expression on the face of a suffering alpaca.
Albert is by nature a sociable, extremely relaxed guy. Calm and always in a good mood, he is the darling of all employees and always in the mood for jokes. It was all the worse to watch Albert become more dissatisfied from beer tasting to beer tasting. There was simply no beer that matched his South American palate. Motzen is not Albert's kind, but the house blessing was crooked. While Albert sipped his daily mate tea in frustration, we brooded and pored over ideas until we got a flash of inspiration. Mate beer! If Albert likes to drink mate, then a beer with mate must taste all the better. Said and done. With Albert's help, we found the finest mate tea from the handpicked leaves of South America's most magnificent mate bushes and used it to brew Albert's favorite beer. The Alpaka® Mate Ale was born and Albert was on cloud nine . Of course, he posed with great joy for the label, on which he can now be seen in front of colorful South American patterns. The house blessing was put back and Albert trots through the Bierothek® with a happy smile on his face ever since.
Happy alpaca, happy ending.
Our creation is not only tasty for South American alpacas. The Alpaka® Mate Ale quickly enjoyed great popularity among Albert's human colleagues and friends. Mate is the favorite drink of all hipsters and in combination with beer it is even better than it is already. The jurors of the annual Meininger's International Craft Beer Award 2019 also noticed this and awarded the Alpaka® Mate Ale a silver medal. Among all participating beers in the “Experimental Style Beer” category, Albert's favorite won one of the coveted places on the podium and a lot of new fans. Alpaka® Mate Ale is a beer that tastes best when you drink it in good company with friends and family. For such occasions we have developed the Alpaka® Mate Ale beer package - the crate contains twelve bottles of Alpaka® Mate Ale and is therefore perfect for sharing!
And who knows, maybe Albert will stop by your next barbecue party and have a bottle of mate ale with you?
