"Beer is the most wonderful drink in the world." – Martin Zuber Martin Zuber

Martin Zuber

Hobbies: First and foremost sports (downhill and cross-country skiing, mountain climbing, long-distance running, diving) and of course spending time with my family.
Favourite beer: Hard to say – as a beer sommelier I prefer to drink the right beer for every situation. But I lean toward Hefe-Weizen Natural Wheat and also beers with a pleasant taste of hops.
For me, the art of brewing means ... ... a passion, a hobby and a calling.

The perfect beer
The perfect beer

It's still quiet in the Paulaner beer garden at Nockherberg. The sun is warm on master brewer Martin Zuber's back. In front of him is the perfect beer. "Everything was done right with this one," says Zuber, pleased. And he is referring not just to the wheat beer but also everything about it: "There is plenty that can go wrong with it," Zuber adds. The beer glasses should always be clean and grease-free, "otherwise the foam suffers." What's more, beer should have refreshing 43 - 46 °F , particularly in the summertime. Well then, cheers, Mr. Zuber!

The art of pouring beer
The art of pouring beer

Still, not everyone has the chance to enjoy a freshly tapped Paulaner at a beer garden. Fortunately, Martin Zuber can tell you the right way to enjoy a glass at home. "Pouring wheat beer from a bottle is like drawing it off a tap," he explains. Hold a glass previously rinsed with cold water at an angle and let the beer run in slowly. Don't get impatient: before you add some more beer, the foam should settle. And then? Briefly swirl  the bottle, pour in the rest, and enjoy.

Taking time
Taking time

According to master brewer Zuber, the most important ingredient for enjoying beer is unfortunately one that isn't for sale anywhere: time. "We give ourselves lots of time to brew it," says Zuber. "And that should be true when you drink it too. That applies to our wheat beer, blonde lager beers and specialties. We have the right beer for every occasion and every dish," Zuber concludes. And with a history of more than 375 years of brewing, Paulaner also has the necessary experience. "That's something you can taste," says Zuber.

In the brewer's garden
In the brewer's garden

Martin Zuber has only one answer to the question of where he prefers to drink his beer: "In a beer garden – where else?" After all, beer gardens and the brewing process share a long history. Originally the "gardens" served as a place above the breweries' storage cellars where beer was sold, and were only allowed to be called beer gardens if they had chestnut trees growing in them. "The trees offered shade for the storage cellars," explains Zuber. Then, taking a sip, he grins and adds, "And naturally, for the master brewers as well."
