Brewing art in the Attersee-Attergau region
An annually changing pleasure topic rounds off the offer of the pleasure autumn Attersee-Attergau. This year we would like to put the regional brewers in the foreground with the theme hops. Starting in October, the Attersee-Attergau Tourist Office will offer a unique and limited beer tasting offer compactly in a unique beer carrier: The regional beer4er.
Behind it there are not only four different tastes but above all four private breweries and brewers who are passionate about their craft. The common passion not only connects these small private breweries but it also challenges special tastes.
Bräu am Berg
The family-run private brewery in Frankenmarkt
Brewers in the fifth generation
The private brewery in Frankenmarkt, Upper Austria, run by the fifth generation of the family, puts quality and customer service first and works according to the motto "small but nice": The raw materials of local farmers are processed by hand into the award-winning beer and bottled with the high-quality Frankenmarkter mineral water.
Bräu am Berg - Berggold
The Frankenmarkter beer specialties, brewed according to the Bavarian purity law of 1516, guarantee the beer lover the highest drinking pleasure. The raw materials of local farmers are lovingly handcrafted to create a harmonious specialty beer, the Bräu am Berg Berggold. Ecological sustainability and care are the main focus.
Beer style: Special beer
Optics: distinctive, glossy amber color with stable, fine pored foam
Taste: slightly spicy aroma of cereals with caramel extracts, pleasantly tangy in the mouth, full-bodied with a balanced interplay of hops and malt notes in the taste of three selected Austrian hop varieties.
Alcohol content: 5.5 vol.% Original wort: 12.5°.
In Steinbach the taste is hammered into the beer.
Inspiration through blacksmithing
The inspiration for the brand name was the grandfather of Mario Scheckenberger, the beer smith, who was once a blacksmith in Steinbach. The blacksmith's craft stands like no other for powerful and characterful qualities like the beer of the beer smithy today. In addition to the award-winning beers, the brewery tours, beery souvenirs as well as the brewing tavern including regional delicacies are popular.
The Werkstück – the beer to the nature park Attersee-Traunsee
A delightful selection of light Pilsner malt and selected caramel malts results in a rich amber color. The malt character is harmoniously balanced by the fine Celeja aroma hops. The most important raw material - water - comes directly from the source in the Attersee Traunsee Nature Park.

Regional beer variety from the agricultural family brewery
From hobby to profession
It was Volkher Kaltenböck who, in the course of his master brewing studies at the University of Munich, in Weihenstephan, dealt with the art of brewing for a long time. The first brewing experiments followed shortly afterwards at his parents' farm with a manageable quantity of 10 liters. Today he runs the brewery together with his brother Herwig.
Barley and hops from own cultivation
In the meantime, the beers of the Kaltenböck brewery have won several awards and since 2012, the brewery has even been growing its own barley and hops on its own fields. For the regional Bier4er, the decision was made to use the Pfahlbaubier. A very special beer which is also the harbinger for the 2027 national exhibition. It is a dark herbal beer with raw materials that were already known and cultivated in the Neolithic Age.
Beer style: herb beer, bottom fermented
Optics: unfiltered, slight haze, reddish-brown with honey-colored foam
Taste: harmonious herbal note in the nose, full-bodied with a recognizable caramel note, pleasantly fruity acidity.
Alcohol content: 4,9%.
Original wort: 11,8 °
