By German law, at least 50% of the fermentable sugars must come from malted wheat (5.0% ABV).
OBBC Munich Lager
This Bavarian pale (helles) lager is a malt accentuated beer that is not overly sweet, but is rather focused on malt flavor with an underlying hop bitterness for a smooth balanced profile. This style of beer was created in Munich in 1895 at the Spaten brewery to compete with Pilsnerstyle beers (^5.1%ABV).
OBBC Pilsner (Pils)

This dark-ruby colored wheat doppelbock has a creamy fine head, full-bodied, warming and well-balanced. Strong notes of ripe bananas, raisins and plums meet liquorice and roasty aromas (8% ABV).
OBBC Sticke Altbier
This is the traditional style of beer from Dusseldorf. The term “Alt” refers to the “old” style of brewing (i.e., making top-fermented ales) that was common before lager brewing became popular. “Sticke” is the local vernacular for “secret” in Düsseldorf, which means the brewery does not reveal the recipe. But this much we will tell you: This beer is full-bodied and well-hopped, with a surprising balance between bitterness and nutty-malty sweetness (6.2% ABV).
