Jan Kemker is a traditionalist. He does not long for the good old days, but is thirsty for the bridesmaids of the past. He satisfies this desire for the splendor of bygone days with creations from his own production. His homeland of Münster used to be a vibrant center of diverse beer culture with a whole range of its own specialities. Today there is not much left of it and that is exactly what the ambitious brewer would like to change. Together with his partner Nicole, he has made it his goal to revive the historical art of brewing in the region. With great attention to detail and handpicked raw materials, Kemker Kultuur brews the fine treasures from Münster’s history.
An absolute public favorite in this special range is the so-called Aoltbeer. This brew is based on the historical sour beer from Westphalia. With the possibilities and limitations of the brewers earlier in mind, Jan has developed a recipe that contains husks and cone hops. Instead of convenient pellets, the brewer uses all of the untreated bloom. After the brewing process, the noble beer is filled into red wine barrels and matures for more than a year in aromatic oak wood. This step gives the brew wine-like notes and a delicate acidity that perfectly complements its character.
Due to the cask aging, each new edition of the aoltbeer is unique in its taste. We have the classic variant and the one with cherries and blackcurrants .
