Faß gefüllt mit Bieren aus Amberg
Amberger Faßl

The Amberg Fassl, which contains selected samples from Amberg breweries, is the perfect souvenir. Amberg, where beer is at home. Ambergers are reputed to be a beer-loving people. 36,000 buckets of beer in a year, says the chronicle of 1564; that means 26,900 hectoliters - the upper palatinate cities of the Vils were already brewing this much at that time. And this amount does not include that created for personal use. At one time all citizens of Amberg had the right to brew beer, even professionally. An ordinance issued by the city council in 1456 reads: " ... and everyone who lives here, whether he be a craftsman, a beer brewer, or another, may brew and have brewed as much as he is able." Even ten years ago, there were still ten breweries that were brewing their fine Amberg beer specialties in the "secret capital of the Upper Palatinate." Bruckmüller, Kummert, Sterk, Schloderer, Sudhang, and Winkler still have their own brew houses to this day. Good beers, brewed according to traditional brewing recipes handed down over time, are also provided by the Maltese, Brauhaus, Schießl, Falk, and Jordan breweries. As a reminder, Ambergers keep this specialty ready: "The Amberg Fassl" with samples from all the breweries of Amberg, with 10 bottles of various types of beer.

"Friedrich Weisse" gift package
"Friedrich Weisse" gift package

Prince Friedrich V of the Palatinate, born in Amberg and known to history as the "Winter king," confirmed numerous charters for the citizens of Amberg. On October 26th, 1617 he issued a wheat beer and brewing ordinance, the so-called "wheat beer charter," for Amberg. This charter allowed the citizens of Amberg to brew and enjoy the - then as now - sought-after wheat beer. This gift packet, looking back to those days, contains two bottles of King Friedrich wheat beer from the Kummert brewery with its self-created logo and a fitting wheat beer glass.
