Höchstadt an der Aisch

Caroline in Keller20160425 101010BlauerLowe

West Mayo Brewery were delighted to be invited to Höchstadt an der Aisch in April 2016 to participate in their celebration of the 25th anniversary of their Beer Keller Club on the Beer Day of Saturday April 23rd which was the 500th anniversary of the Bavarian Beer Purity Law called Reinheitsgebot.

Höchstadt an der Aisch is in Franconia, the northern part of the Bavarian/Bayern province where they have a proud brewing tradition and the greatest density (and quality!) of breweries probably in the world. The welcome we recieved was wonderful and we were very grateful to be so well looked after and to see all the interesting sights and learn all the local beer styles.

We have a photo album on our Facebook page that you can see here!
