“Autenrieder beer – Committed to goodness since 1650”. The Autenrieder Schlossbrauerei uses this impressive slogan to advertise its excellent beers. But beer has probably been brewed in the Swabian brewery for much longer.
Today, several generations of Feuchtmayrs are at the helm of the Autenried Castle Brewery. Before the Feuchtmayr family came into possession of the brewery, it was in noble hands. Heinrich Lapière founded the company in 1650 and more than 300 years passed until Leonhard Feuchtmayr took over the management. Since then, the scepter has been passed from generation to generation and the Feuchtmayr family, with its good name, stands for outstanding quality and responsibility for people and nature. The Feuchtmayrs combine traditional recipes with the latest brewing technology and hand-picked raw materials. The result is a wide range of tasty beers that not only impresses the brewery's regular customers but also the judges of countless competitions. It is important to the family to carry their rich tradition into the future and to maintain the cultural heritage of beer. In the brewery's own inn with attached hotel you can let yourself be carried away by the dedication and enthusiasm of the whole family. And anyone who is interested in the craft of brewing can get a taste of brewing in the Autenrieder Brewery Experience World, taste delicious beer and learn something about the eventful history of beer.
However, what is even more important than the living beer culture of the Autenried Castle Brewery is of course the beer. The brewery meets all the basic criteria for excellent brews: the brewing water comes from the brewery's own deep well. The Schlossgartenquelle has soft, mineral-rich water that forms the perfect base for tasty beer. And the other brewing ingredients are also of exquisite quality: the hops, for example, are only used in their natural form and come from regional hop farmers who grow the green gold with the utmost care and a healthy dose of passion. Umbel hops are said to have a particularly high density of aromas, which contributes to the taste of the beer. The fine raw materials are processed according to self-imposed quality standards; a particular concern in this process is the symbiosis of people and nature. The Autenried Castle Brewery works according to the principles of the circular economy: people are the focus and are in harmony with nature. What is taken from the natural organism is fed back into it elsewhere. For example, the residues from the brewing process serve as fertilizer for the brewery's own barley cultivation. The beer connoisseur benefits from the brewery's working principle because the entire process is transparent and the brewery is responsible for every step from the cultivation of the raw materials to the finished product. Their good work has not only brought the Feuchtmayr family EC certification but also numerous awards in the environmental sector.
Outstanding beer with a clean slate!
