Brewer's Advent 2023 Day 15: Rheder - Husarentrunk
A Castle Brewery
The families of the Barons of Spiegel and the Barons of Mengersen are among the oldest and most important noble families in Germany. Rheder Castle has been the ancestral seat of the families since the 14th century. In 1686, they received the brewing rights. The so-called "Vorburg" (outer castle) from 1716 served as the family's residence until the Rheder Castle was built in 1750 and was also used for the brewery. Brewing is still carried out there today, on modern equipment and in excellent quality. In the left wing is the brewhouse, in the center the administration and the Hussar Museum.
The baroque castle looks simply, but inside it holds several treasures. Ceilings with lavish ornaments, the octagonal garden hall with a view of the landscaped park, where many couples have said "I do".
A gold-colored lager in the style of a Bavarian Märzen. Light sweetness is accompanied by fine bitterness. Good drinkability, easy to drink.
