A type of German beer which is typically not filtered or pasteurised. Kellerbier can be either top or bottom fermented. The term Kellerbier literally translates to "cellar beer", referring to its cool lagering temperatures. Its recipe likely dates to the Middle Ages. In comparison with most of today's filtered lagers, Kellerbier contains more of its original brewing yeast, as well as vitamins, held in suspension. It is distinctly cloudy. Kellerbier and Zwickelbier are often served directly from the barrel, or bottled.
Other names: Zwickelbier
