Arcobräu Bierhaus, SA’s first ‘green’ tap system bier house is now offering 14 exclusive village-crafted Bavarian biers, some of which have previously never been available outside Germany.

The new offering is the result of a partnership between Arcobräu Brewery and Adelaide Hills hospitality and tourism operators, the Holmes Brothers.

“Arcobräu’s dedication to preserving the craft and tradition of Bavarian beer is a perfect match for Hahndorf’s historic cultural and culinary traditions, and we’re very excited to be part of showcasing these beers to a new audience,” says managing director Andrew Holmes.

“We’re using a system that relies on compressed air and recyclable PET kegs filled with aluminium bladders,” said Andrew. “That means there’s no need to add food grade gas to get the beer from the keg to the tap at the bar, so the beer is exactly as brewed when it hits the glass – and there’s no waste either.”

Located within a renovated blacksmith’s barn in the main street of Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills, Arcobräu Bierhaus opened late last year following a partnership between Melbourne-based Hoff Hospitality Group and the internationally renowned Arcobräu Brewery to bring their independently produced premium beers to South Australia for the first time.

In addition to the Arcobräu Bierhaus, plans are well underway for a venue opening in Sydney’s Darling Harbour. A number of the Bavarian brews are also available at Melbourne venues including: Hoffbrauhaus, and The Hoff Downtown Bavarian Bier Bar und Café.
