Münchner Helles Bier
Serving temperature: 7-9˚C
Result: Fine hops aroma and malted body.
Timeline of the great blonde beers:
-1842: in Pilsen, the Pilsner Urquell transforms its famous spring water into the original, clear Pilsener.
-1894: in Munich, the Spaten brewery creates a savoury, golden beer that it names Münchner Hell (meaning Munich light in German).
-1997: in Montreal, a craft brewer and his apprentice create the unique and timeless Černá at l’Amère à boire.
-2004: the brewer and his apprentice continue the success of the Münchner Helles Bier by releasing the audacious Montréal Hell
The Montréal Hell inspired a local artist to reinvent Van Gogh’s The Potato Eaters, painting The Montréal Hell drinkers. Sitting at the back patio near the typically Montreal spiral staircase, the figures are illuminated by their beers as they appear to be discussing great things.
