Aecht Schlenkerla


From Bamberg, one of Germany’s most historic beer cities, Aecht Schlenkerla represents a lineage of smoking beer that dates back centuries. This historic brewery is a veritable epicenter of the time-honored German Rauchbier tradition—beer brewed with malt dried over an open flame.

Aecht Schlenkerla prides itself on preserving the traditional brewing methods that create these unique smoke-infused beers. Employing only the purest of ingredients and the original recipes passed down through the generations, Aecht Schlenkerla ensures that each brew holds true to its historic roots.

Marvelously complex, Aecht Schlenkerla brews range from the assertive Urbock, rich in smoky tones, to the more subtly smoked Lager. Each beer offers a taste profile that is as distinctive as it is memorable, bringing forth the echo of ancient brewing art and an unparalleled depth of flavor.

But it’s not just the beer that makes Aecht Schlenkerla a part of Bamberg’s soul. Each brew reflects the rich history of the Bavarian region, telling a story woven with half-timbered houses, resounding church bells, and the inviting aroma of smoked malt permeating cobbled streets.

For North Carolina beer connoisseurs, Aecht Schlenkerla’s unmatched smoke beers, unique to this historic German brewery, are readily available through Freedom Beverage Company. It’s a taste of Bamberg’s past, brimming with authentic flavor and tradition—one sip at a time.
