Everything is bigger in America – the burgers, the cars, the pools and the beer? "Big beers" is the promise of the Weyerbacher Brewing Co. from Easton, Pennsylvania, and it means above all the alcohol content. Some of these beers from the States have a significantly higher alcohol content than most German beers, some with 13.5% vol. But it's not just the alcohol content that catches the eye: a brightly colored court jester with three bells on his horned cap adorns the brewery's logo. The labels are just as imaginative and eye-catching: Funky monks dance, carry huge beer kegs around, or fly in hot-air balloons that, on closer inspection, are oversized berries. Frogs, ravens and pumpkins with Halloween faces can also be found on the bottles of the Weyerbacher Brewing Co., which was founded in 1995 from a rented barn.
In order to stand out from the constantly growing competition in the craft beer scene, the former home brewers from Weyerbach Brewing Co. have come up with a concept. "Big" is the keyword and is defined by founders Dan and Sue as the intent, strong beer with rich flavor and the highest quality. The Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot Ale and the Merry Monks Ale marked the beginning of a whole range of high-proof signature beers with full-bodied flavors and the characteristic whimsical labels. To give the beers additional character, many varieties are matured in old bourbon casks.
Weyerbacher Brewing Co. offers its customers a wide range of different beers. From seasonal specialties and everyday classics to holiday beers and beginner-friendly craft beers, everything that makes a beer drinker's heart beat faster is represented.
Universally popular evergreens are beers like the Tiny , which is anything but small with its strong chocolate taste, or the Berry Monks , which convinces with its sweet fruitiness. In the taproom of the Weyerbacher Brewing Co. you can convince yourself of the high quality and the extraordinary taste of the beers, if you don't want to make the long journey to America, you will find an exclusive selection of Weyerbacher products in the Bierothek®.
