Titting is located in the middle of the picturesque Altmühltal Nature Park. Lush green meadows, lush forests and streams with crayfish and trout surround the idyllic village in the Eichstätt district. Countless hiking trails criss-cross the area and invite visitors from near and far to relax in the green. Bike tours, hikes and excursions make you thirsty, the people from Titting know that too. Beer has been brewed in the Wasserschloss zu Titting since 1707, catering for locals and guests alike.
What once served as the summer residence for the Eichstätt Prince-Bishop Marquard II. Schenk von Castell is now a popular attraction in Tittings and the home of the Gutmann brewery. Beer has been brewed in the castle for more than 300 years. The eventful history of the brewery began when Prince Bishop Johann Anton I Knebel von Katzenellenbogen established a brewery in the moated castle. The gentleman with the amusing name wanted to make sure that fresh beer was always on hand and simply got the brewery directly into the house. The brewery finally came into the possession of the Gutmann family in 1855 and is still owned today. With a lot of care and expertise, the Gutmanns cultivate their traditional heritage and brew beers that are still of princely quality. The beer that the family has always been known for is wheat. Gutmann wheat has been brewed since 1913 and has been continuously improved and optimized ever since. The original taste is preserved and cultivated with great care and expertise.
Despite all the tradition, the Gutmann family has not failed to take the step into the future. As early as 1989, the brewery entered into a cooperation with the Jura-Land producer group and has been sourcing its grain from near-natural, neutrally controlled cultivation ever since. This makes them pioneers in terms of regionality and sets a good example. In order to guarantee excellent quality, the Gutmann family has launched their very own purity law. Handpicked raw materials, mineral-rich brewing water from the brewery's own well and transparency in all steps of the process ensure that the beer is uniquely good. The Gutmanns are involved in every move and even kiln their grain in their own malt house. The Gutmann brewery's range is growing steadily and the specialization in wheat beer makes the brewers real wheat experts. Experience, specialist knowledge and the great passion with which the Gutmann family pursues their goals can be seen and tasted. The Gutmanns have been brewing their excellent wheat for six generations and have contributed to maintaining beer as a cultural asset with numerous festivals and events.
Here is brewed with heart and craft.
