Brewer Info: The path to success leads up ‘The Red Staircase’.The private Salzburg brewery combines tradition and innovation, forming a concept for success that makes Stiegl the strongest beer brand in Austria. The “beer with the red staircase” is an unmistakable symbol in Austria for “the art of brewing at the highest level.” Since 1998, Austria’s leading private brewery has consistently borne the conspicuous and unique brand logo. This means that the symbol of the Stiegl brewery can now be found everywhere, in circulars, TV ads, promotions, on glasses, advertising materials, and even on the furnishings in our house restaurants and shops. Stiegl is the largest private brewery in Austria, and is counted among the most successful companies in the country. The secret of this success: Top quality raw materials and production process, Europe’s most modern brewing technologies, innovative variety of products, motivated employees, commitment to tradition, economic sustainability, down to earth quality and the flexible decision-making structures of a family business.

tbr-red-step-labelBrewer Brand Hype: An elegant, refined beer with a pleasant hop bitterness. Lighter kiln-dried malt gives Stiegl Pilsner a light golden colour. With a marvellous bouquet of the finest Saaz hops, a characteristic bitterness and liveliness, it’s a favourite of beer connoisseurs who love a delicate hop note and fine, aromatic flavour.
Label: Since 1492. Imported Goldbrau Premium Lager Beer. Brewed and bottled by the Stiegl Brewery Salzburg, Austria. Brewed from malts, hops, yeast, mountain spring water according to the “Purity Laws of 1516”.

The Brewski Review: This ranks as one of my favorite beers. The taste was clean, crisp and enjoyable with just the perfect balance with the malt and hops. Not bitter but full of delicious flavor. I highly recommend you give this one a try. I’ll be buying a six pack in the not too distant near future. I’m inclined to say that when my kids are older, and I’m still alive, I’ll be dragging my wife to Austria to travel the country and find all the breweries including Stiegl. So far, Austria brewed beers are winning my battle to find the best tasting beers. I envy all those Austrians…hey, wasn’t Arnold Schwarzenegger from Austria? I wonder what he considers his favorite Austrian beer?

Drinkability: Most definitely.
Appearance: Clear, pale golden yellow.
The Buds: Gotta love the purity law.
TBR Cap Rating: 4.75 caps out of 5.
