The abundance of Franconian beers seems almost endless. Some traditional representatives are the Mönchsambacher Export, the Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen, the Keesmann Herren Pils and the Rauchbier from the special brewery. The topic of beer and the Franconian art of brewing is very important in the administrative districts of Upper, Middle and Lower Franconia. Franconian Switzerland, which can be proud of its more than 100 house breweries, deserves a special mention. When it comes to Franconian beers, special attention is also paid to Upper Franconia and especially to the greater Bamberg area – this is where the highest concentration of breweries in the world is found and every beer lover is sure to find their favorite beer there. Countless crowds flock to Franconia every year to comfortably enjoy their traditional Franconian beer in the beer cellars and beer gardens. The Franconian art of brewing not only makes hearts beat faster in Franconia. Due to the high quality and the traditional production method, Franconian beers are revered and appreciated beyond the borders of Franconia. The demand for Franconian beers is also very high internationally, as this region is associated with joie de vivre, serenity and community.
India Pale Ale (IPA for short) is a top-fermented beer that belongs to the ales group. India Pale Ale is often incorrectly referred to as Indian Pale Ale. The India Pale Ale is significantly stronger (6.6% - 12% alcohol content) and more bitter than its big brother - the Pale Ale. India Pale Ale (IPA) originated in England in the mid-19th century. Based on Pale Ales, the alcohol content was increased and more hops were used in the brewing process so that the beers survived the sea route from England to the English colonies. (High alcohol content and high amount of hops extend the shelf life of beer). That's why you can now estimate an IBU value (International Biterness Unit) of about 50 - 70 for IPAs, whereby the hop bitterness of India Pale Ales has no upper limit (e.g. Mikkeller 1000 IBU). However, the normal human palate tastes no difference from about 120 IBU.
