The name commemorates Saint Valentine – the patron saint of all those who are in love and a monk and bishop
in a monastery in italian Terni in the third century. You therefore can draw upon the time-honoured art of
brewing as we know it from monastic breweries, where in the early Middle Ages skilful monks brewed the most
excellent beer, often after many years of trying, and formed the basis of our modern beer culture.
There is some evidence that Valentins is more than 100 years old and originates from a monastery in southern
Germany. We owe it to a former Heidelberger brewery, as it then was, that the recipe still exists. They brewed it
Only the best ingredients are used for Valentins Premium Weißbier: various types of malt, sun-ripened wheat
and the fi nest yeast, brewed in accordance with the Bavarian Purity Law in an elaborate and loving fashion. It is
these ingredients that turn our Valentins Weißbier into a real premium product.
During the seven-hour brewing process, the precious ingredients are mashed at 76°C and carefully boiled. After
the long fermentation period of 6 days, the beer still has to age in our cellar for 3 more weeks before it has become
a full-bodied, yeasty, aromatic and beautifully amber-coloured Valentins Premium Weißbier.
