BREWHOUSE AT 1760M ALTITUDE
The Asitzhütte looks back on a long and eventful history. Already in the 1930s, it was a popular meeting place and a good 20 years later, Sepp Altenberger senior gave his ski lessons here. Finally, in September 2010, his sons acquired the location and, after careful refurbishment and renovation, opened the highest-altitude beer museum in Europe just over a year later.
At 1,760 m altitude, historical exhibits from the malt polishing machine to the malting and lautering vats to the brewhouse are presented. Events of all kinds are also in good hands on the three levels of the hut. On granite floors and in front of former parish church panelling appropriate concerts, shows and dance evenings are held.
Up to 500 people have space on-site, for example in the course of a company party. There are various sized rooms and the big shower room even has a stage for live music. The heart is located with the brewhouse on the 2nd floor. In the basement there are the bar area “sponges” and two beautiful sun terraces complete the offer. For the culinary well-being, the museum restaurant with original brewhouse culinary art from the Haxn, Hendl and Wurstbraterei. Surrounded by several mountain peaks and with a corresponding view, the drops of the house, of course, taste particularly good. The AsitzBräu beer is produced according to a special recipe exclusively by Osttirol’s oldest steam brewery.
