The taste of summer

The smells of barbecue and sunscreen, the river rushes by, the warm grass under your feet, a picnic basket full of delicacies – summer pleasure is even more beautiful when it’s shared. For the perfect day outdoors with friends you need the perfect refreshment: Hofbräu Sommerzwickl. Chilled in the river, it refreshes twice as well. Lively, delicate full flavour with an easy hoppy finish.
