Weisse Taube®

The Weisse Taube is a piece of Bamberg culture that most people wouldn't know anything about today if Hallerndorf brewer Georg Rittmayer and Bierothek® founder Christian Klemenz hadn't taken the initiative. On November 25, 2017, the phoenix or dove rose from the ashes and was accepted into the illustrious circle of Bamberg breweries with a celebratory tapping.

Bamberg cultural assets

The Bamberg Weisse Taube brewery is a relic of days long past. Brewery operations were stopped more than 100 years ago, even though the Weisse Taube was probably the largest brewery in the cathedral city in 1818. The brewery with an attached beer garden used to be where the theater alleys are today. Before the Second World War temporarily put a terrible end to the flourishing Jewish life, the Weisse Taube was an important place for Bamberg's Jewish community. In the sacred halls of the brewery there was a Jewish elementary school and the municipal administration, and the beer garden was used as a meeting place. Not many Bamberg institutions are so closely linked to Jewish life in the Franconian world heritage city. Christian Klemenz and Georg Rittmayer attach great importance to keeping the Jewish past of the resurrected Weisse Taube brewery in living memory. A portion of the sales proceeds will be donated for this purpose. The money will flow into the projects of today's Jewish community in Bamberg and will also be used to build new stumbling blocks in Bamberg's cityscape. The stumbling blocks in Bamberg's historic pavement act as small memorials and remind us of Bamberg residents who fell victim to National Socialism. The Weisse Taube is a living piece of city history that also gives us wonderfully good beer.

We raise our glass that history never repeats itself!

A heart for beer (history)

Closely adapted to the descriptions of historical tradition, the Weisse Taube wheat beer tastes mild, soft and round. The pleasant effervescence makes the beer not only extremely drinkable, but also particularly digestible. With love for tradition and craftsmanship, the Weisse Taube beer is brewed almost exactly as it was at the heyday of the historic brewery. By reviving several breweries such as Evora and LaBieratorium, Christian Klemenz has shown that Germany's beer culture is close to his heart. Georg Rittmayer's motives for saving the Weisse Taube are of a different nature: the master brewer from Hallerndorf recently established family ties to a former brewer of the Weisse Taube.
