Mozart’s Favorite Beer, Resurrected in Denver

Mozart’s Favorite Summer Beer, Lost for 100 Years, Is Resurrected in Denver
Via Vinepair
I’m told fans of historic beer styles have been waiting a long time for the return of Horner Bier. Sure, why not, I’m always ready to try something new and this has a great back story.
Seedstock Brewery has resuscitated Horner Bier, which can now join the ranks of German styles like Merseburger, Broyhan, and Berliner Braunbier. Andreas Krennmair, author of a book on how to brew forgotten Old World beer styles, says he hasn’t yet seen a commercial version of Horner beer. “It seems to be a beer style that sounds interesting and unusual, but at the same time is probably too strange for brewers to even attempt to brew it,” Krennmair says.
Really? Has he seen the American Craft Beer market? Voodoo Donut? Oyster Stout? Beard Beer? Need I go on? If this is too strange I’ve got to try it.

Among other changes coming into effect.
