Austrian beer

Austrian beer – an Austrian brewer called Anton Dreher started the world’s love affair with clear beer with his red Vienna-style in the 1830s – up to then all beer had been more or less cloudy. He has worthy successors who make mostly medium-bodied Märzen lagers, which in most cases have evaded the attentions of the big beercos. Try these: Edelweiss, Heineken-owned Gösser, Stiegl, Trumer, Zipfer, and Schloss Eggenberg, makers of Samichlaus 14% abv lager.
