StarkbierFest is Germany’s oldest beer festival, which refers to the dilemma that German monks faced during Lent. For a 40-day period, they had to fast and could not consume any food. However, they were allowed to drink. So they decided to create a beer that was rich in nutrients and calories in order to keep themselves satisfied and full during Lent. Indeed, the monks themselves referred to the beer as ‘Flüssiges Brot’ (liquid bread) due to its high calorific value. Traditionally, these beers are dark and strong.
