Beer of the Week: Schneider Weisse Aventinus

Aventinus is a full-bodied and malty beer with notes of raisins, plums, and marzipan made in Bavaria, Germany. Brewed by G. Schneider & Sohn brewery, the aventinus has an ABV of 8.2% and is a wheat doppelbock. It pairs well with roasted meats and chocolaty desserts. Our owner’s all time favorite beer, the Schneider Weisse Aventinus, is an award winner and has won 6 gold medals at the European Beer Star Competition.

The world’s oldest wheat doppelbock was created in 1907 by Georg Schneider III’s young widow, Mathilda. Breaking with doppelbock naming tradition (most end with “-ator”), she named the beer after the Aventinustrasse in Munich, the original brewery’s address.
