Historians claim that the name “Black Forest” dates back to the Romans who found the region wide, uninhabited and “black”. The appearance of this beautiful mountainous area, however, has changed drastically since the Roman days. Today, the Black Forest has around 40 million tourist overnight stays in the many skiing, hiking, and wellness resorts.
The Black Forest has become not only a favourite holiday region, but it is also the home of Badische Staatsbrauerei Rothaus and their beers. Rothaus is situated right in the middle of the High Black Forest at an altitude of 1,000 metres (3,300 ft). It is, therefore, Germany’s highest brewery. Rothaus places great importance on the use of local ingredients in its brewing processes. Suppliers are being strictly controlled to comply with the rules and regulations which the brewery has set forth in order to encourage local barley farming and malting.
As early as 1791, Rothaus brewed beers with passion. Traditional craftsmanship, the best ingredients and crystal clear, soft water from its own seven wells comprise the perfect basis for excellent beers. The most popular Rothaus beer is the Rothaus Pils called Tannenzäpfle with its label displaying a blonde Black Forest maiden in traditional dirndl costume. Also, the Rothaus wheat beer and the Märzen Export are clearly worth more than one try.
