Known for their wheat beer or should we say weisse bier, Schneider Weisse is made in the small village of Kelheim in Bavaria. Their flagship expression 'Tap 1' is known worldwide and represents a style of beer that would have been one of the oldest beer types dating back to the 1400s. In Bavaria they started making this beer around 1500. A law called Reinheitsgebot specified that beer could only be made of malted barley. Therefore, for the next four centuries, the state had to specially authorise breweries to make wheat beer.
