Kapuziner wheat beer, from the beer city Kulmbach, is brewed according to time-honoured monastery techniques, so wheat-beer lovers can experience "original pleasure".

Beer is a living tradition in Kulmbach.

For the nine-day

beer festival, which always starts on the last Saturday in July, up to 120,000 guests arrive every year from around the world. Each brand brews its own special festival beer to mark the occasion, and Kapuziner is the main attraction.

Fullback Imports suppl ies Kapuziner to the UK and describes it as "a beer with a special fruity and spicy taste and a golden, low-yeast cloudiness". The three-strong range consists of the original Kapuziner Weissbier with 5.4 per cent abv, Kapuziner Light at 3.1 per cent abv, and an alcohol-free variant at less than 0.5 per cent abv.
