Beer specialities that have been awarded the Slow Brewing seal of quality stand for this.
To award the seal of approval, Slow Brewing not only checks the quality of the beer but also the brewery that produces it.
During the annual inspection, the brewery and its production processes are closely scrutinised. Among other things, the quality of the raw materials, the type and quality of the brewing method and the quality of the company's management and culture are certified.
The strict, scientific audit comprises more than 500 questions. Every month, the taste quality of the beer is tested by the renowned Weihenstephan Research Centre (TU Munich). The beer quality of both the freshly bottled and the "aged" product is checked constantly for 12 months a year. This provides information about quality control, one of the biggest tasks for brewers. The seal of approval is only awarded if all areas have been rated as "excellent".
In Austria, we are currently one of 4 breweries to have committed themselves to Slow Brewing.
