BudikeWeisse_zweizeilig_Internetseite.png

STYLE / HISTORY
Since the 16th century, Berliners liked to drink their "Weisse". Shortly afterwards, when the Huguenots settled at the Spree and brought along some French expressions, a new term for pubs was introduced throughout the city: Budike (from the French “Boutique”). Until the early 19th century, the innkeeper, also known as Budiker, served mostly the Berliner Weisse, a light beer made from wheat and barley malt, and a top-secret cocktail of wild yeasts that contributes to its mild-sour, complex taste. The "sparkling wine of the north", as Napoleon's troops have admiringly called the beer, became the favorite drink of the whole city. More information on our Weisse: Click here!

TASTING NOTE
The Budike Weisse seems like a mysterious sparkling wine in the glass, fine bubbles pearl up. It smells of French cider and freshly squeezed apple juice, the initial taste is reminiscent of grated Boskoop apples. The second sip also reveals orange and citrus notes, melon, cucumber, dill and mustard seeds. At first sweet, then subtly sour, the finale concludes harmonious and round - a wonderfully complex taste sensation.

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS
green salads, goats cheese, fruity soups, also Weisswurst, knuckle of pork, or apple strudel

STYLE / HISTORY

Brew-master Josef Groll would probably never have dreamed of his beer’s worldwide triumph, when he first brewed, bottled and named his beer after the city of Pilsen in 1842. In Germany the popularity of this beer type remains untarnished, even though nowadays a slimmed down version is widely offered. However Lemke’s Pilsner is more inspired by the bohemian original, which means: a bit more of everything. More body, more colour, more flavour. And we of course, brew our Pilsner with bohemian malt and stuff it with Saaz hops.

   

TASTING NOTE

Intense fragrance of flowery-fruity notes: blossoms, honeydew melon, citrus and herbal notes of camomile and sage. The initial taste offers a confident bitterness and herbal-fruity aroma, followed by rather sharp nuances like geranium. The strong malty body complements the hops with a robust nutty note. The finish leaves you with a lasting bitterness and herbal flavour.

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS:

Aperitif, pickled knuckle of pork, Viennese Schnitzel, Bratwurst

STYLE / HISTORY

Originally this cask conditioned beer was drawn as a ‘Bitter’ in English pubs. With the process of bottling, it became the ‘Pale Ale’.  In the beginning of the 1980ies some of the early craft brewers took on this old brewing style to reinvent it.  That is why the ‘Pale Ale’ became the beer which represents the craft beer movement like no other. A real alternative to the Pilsner!

TASTING NOTE
A subtle fragrance of tropical fruits, citrus and wild forest honey. A full bodied initial taste with the subtle bitterness of grapefruit and lemon. The compact malty body contributes flavours of toast and toffee. Its juicy mouthfeel is rounded off with herbal nuances and a crisp finish. Aromatic, refreshing.

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS:
Burger, pork steaks, Bratwurst

STYLE / HISTORY

The origin of the German Wheat Ale dates back to the 16th century. Then, the beer production was regulated by the state.  It was around 1800, after feeling the pressure of competing styles, that the state finally gave up its monopoly.  But even this development could not prevent the Wheat Ale from being pushed aside and almost forgotten. This lasted until the 1960ies, which introduced a renaissance of this brewing style. Our full-bodied Wheat Ale is available in 0.35 litre bottles, which ensures the freshness of a classic summer beer.

TASTING NOTE
The typical Wheat Ale fragrances of banana, vanilla and pear compote with a hint of spice. The initial taste is fruity and swells to a medium bodied mouthfeel. Cloves and nutmeg create tension. The texture is juicy; the finale concludes with moments of crisp spiciness and a malty body which provides toasty impressions. Hoppy-aromatic, full-bodied, multi-layered.

STYLE / HISTORY

The first Viennese Lager has to be credited to Anton Dreher, the inventor of the Lager. When lighter beers gained popularity in the 19th century, Lager almost vanished, however it made its way to Mexico where this original brewing style underwent wide modifications. We have brewed our ‘Lemke’s Original’ without changes since 1999.

TASTING NOTE
The nose will enjoy pepper and gentle roasting aromas such as cocoa and bitter chocolate. After a crisp initial taste, the malt releases more gentle flavours. The texture is dry.  A subtle acid kick from the roasting aromas leads to the finale: toffee, toast and cocoa notes gently linger. Dominantly malty, slim, dry.

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS:
Haxe (pork knuckle), steak, goulash, pork roast

logo-IPA.png

STYLE / HISTORY

Whatever it was, the beer drinking English found in their Indian colonies: it didn’t seem to make them very happy. They wanted their Pale Ale. However, to preserve it for the long journey, they first had to increase the original gravity of the wort and the hopping rate. Later this style was adopted and reinterpreted by craft brewers from the USA. Today the IPA as well as the Pale Ale are some of the craft brewer’s most popular styles of beer. As it is with us. 

TASTING NOTE
Refreshing fragrances of mango and grapefruit, with hints of pine. Caressing the palate. The dominant bitterness is backed by the malt body’s strong notes of caramel and bread crust. Hop aromas balance out the bitterness on the palate. Besides the exotic fruity notes, resinous tones gain more prominence. The mouthfeel is juicy and cooling. Long bitter-grapefruity finale. Hoppy-aromatic, fruity-bitter, intense.

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS:
Goats cheese, Currywurst (sausage with curry and tomato sauce), Flammkuchen (French pizza from Alsace region), Burger

STYLE / HISTORY
EUROPEAN BEER STAR GOLD 2018 - WINNER NEW STYLE IPA
Shortly after the British brewers had developed a big, hop-flavored beer for export, it found its way to every pub in the British Isles thanks to the railway, invented in the 19th century. After the style almost vanished in Great Britain, it was reinvented in the 1980s by the upcoming craft beer enthusiasts in the USA. Using formerly underrated American hops, like Cascade, gave the US-style IPAs its distinct flavor. Today, every fifth craft beer in the world is a West Coast IPA. Our interpretation of this great beer style is Spree Coast IPA, as the river Spree runs through the middle of the city and we like to enjoy a good Spree Coast IPA sitting at the river bank.

TASTING NOTE
Sand orange glows our Spree Coast IPA in the glass and sends its bouquet of fully ripe oranges, mandarins, pomelo and honeydew melons on a journey. In the mouth it softly plays around the tongue and refreshes like a multivitamin smoothie on the palate until a resinous bitterness gains more prominence and waits seemingly infinitely patient for the next sip.

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS
Cheese plate, goats cheese, assorted cold meat, knuckle of pork

logo-hopfenweisse.png

STYLE / HISTORY

For our Hopfenweisse we combined two styles of beer: ‘Weizenbock’ and ‘Indian Pale Ale’. The ‘Weizenbock’ was created by Schneider in the early 20th century as an alternative to the then widely popular Lagerbock. The IPA however was developed from the ‘Pale Ale’, which the English simply couldn’t do without in their Indian colonies. Our Hopfenweisse combines the best of both.

TASTING NOTE

The Hopfenweisse offers both, a bouquet of yeast and hops: the scent of banana, ripe apples and honey. The hops contribute herbal-green moments, which resemble dill. Full-bodied with almost oily impressions to the palate. Fruity body with lingering sweetness, noticeable hop notes, long bitter finale; multilayered, intense, fruity-sweet.

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS:
Duck, Currywurst (sausage with curry and tomato sauce), Flammkuchen (French pizza from the Alsace region)

BalckRye_IPA.png

STYLE / HISTORY
At the beginning of the 18th century, a London based brewer developed a dark, strong, quite heavily hopped beer which was popular among workmen carrying heavy loads (so called “porters”) – so it got its name Porter. Although this version of its origin is not proven beyond doubt, the beer made somehow its way to North America, where rye was the first brewing crop grown by the emigrants. 100 years later, the first pale beer with a strong emphasis on hops was born: the IPA, and it began its triumphal march. So it was only natural to combine the best of both beer styles in one: the result is our Black Rye IPA.

TASTING NOTE
Have you ever enjoyed pineapple pieces in dark chocolate? Then you know exactly what our Black Rye IPA tastes like. Mysterious and self-confident, the ebony beer stands in the glass and spreads an intense aroma of dark chocolate, pineapple and espresso. The first sip is an exciting journey through caramel and honey tones, followed by dark chocolate, toffee, tropical fruits and a decidedly bitter finale. Creamy-velvety in the mouth, the Black Rye IPA demands urgently after the next sip - let yourself be seduced!

Goulash soup, currywurst, liver, burger, rumpsteak

logo-Imperial_IPA.png

STYLE / HISTORY

When the Indian Pale Ale underwent further development by the craft beer scene in the USA, the American hop had its big appearance. However, for some ‘Hopheads’ amongst the brewers this still seemed insufficient and lead them to create the Imperial IPA – for all those who cannot get enough of their hops. We passionately follow in this tradition and stuff our Imperial IPA with triple the amount of hops.

TASTING NOTE
The nose delights with a magnificent bouquet of hazelnut, mango, pineapple and honey; a velvety-oily texture. The initial taste is bitter-sweet and expands to a full body, which complements a multilayered play of hops perfectly. The finish is long-lasting, juicy and bitter. Powerful, but well-balanced; brilliant hop aromas, full-bodied, alcoholically warming.

Goats cheese, Currywurst (sausage with curry and tomato sauce), Flammkuchen (French pizza from the Alsace region), Burger

logo-Imperial_Stout.png

STYLE / HISTORY

A complex beer for the experienced enthusiast. Once brewed by the English as a present to the Russian tsarina, it has now gained great popularity with craft brewers around the globe, as it allows more creative freedom than any other beer. We do that by stuffing our Imperial Stout full of hops and leave it to mature in barriques (small wooden barrels) for 6 months, before we bottle it.

TASTING NOTE
Distinct woody-spicy notes from the barriques create the first impression on the nose, complemented by figs and Amarena cherries. Vanilla and herbs, especially thyme, mingle. A gentle oily impression is followed by pine and a reoccurring herbal bouquet of thyme. The finish is soft but dry with lingering aromas of wood and black pepper.

Kaiserschmarren (torn raisin pancake), ice cream

ImperialStout_BarrelBlend.png

STYLE / HISTORY
LIMITED EDITION: Creating a barrel blend - a composition of different types of barrel aged beers - is both a science in itself and a great adventure with an uncertain outcome. But with experience, patience, and the right intuition, we end up with a result, that every great composition should aim for: being more than the sum of its components. We store our 29 °P Imperial Stout on preused barrels of different origins, as we have used Bourbon, Tequila, Cognac, Sherry and Rum barrels in the past. Afterwards we blend the resulting beers in order to reach the most complex yet balanced taste-experience. Sometimes we also spice the resulting beer up with beers form our regular production line, as Black Rye IPA or our Imperial IPA have been known to fulfill that task. In any case, once every year the barrel blend is very unique and very limited.
