1612er Zwickelbier, is a Zwickel (Or Zwickl) beer made in the same tradition as Kellerbiers: unfiltered, served straight from the cask or conditioning tank, and naturally cloudy in the glass. 1612er Zwickelbier has an alcohol content of 5.3% abv and was first brewed by Hofbräuhaus Traunstein in 1612, when the Bavarian Duke Maximilian I founded a brewery solely for producing Weissbier. Today however, the brewery range also includes a Pilsner and a Dunkel. Hops for 1612er Zwickelbier come from the brewery's own farm in the Hallertau area, whereas the malt is sourced locally. 1612er is currently only available in the brewery's restaurants and beer halls.[1][2]
