like it always was
a drinkable and mild classic beer
Gaffel Wiess is the top-fermented beer specialty from the cathedral city on the Rhine – light, unfiltered and naturally cloudy. Until the middle of the last century, Wiess was the national drink of the people of Cologne and thus the forefather of Kölsch as we know it today. The drinkable and mild character makes this beer classic a real taste experience – especially in convivial company. Cheers together!

Naturally cloudy, as it used to be
Naturally cloudy beers used to be normal. Bright filtration was only made possible by new high-performance filters after the industrial revolution. The bright beer gradually became established. Filtered Kölsch, as we know it, replaced unfiltered Wiess at the beginning of the last century. Today, naturally cloudy beers – also called yeast-cloudy beers – are in demand again.
Brewed according to the purity law
Gaffel Wiess is brewed in accordance with the Purity Law, according to which only hops, yeast, malt and water may be used in the brewing process. The hops come from the Hallertau region of Bavaria. All other ingredients come from the Rhineland. For the Wiess, Gaffel’s own yeast provides the alcoholic fermentation, which has very special properties and makes the beers from the house of Gaffel something special
