The Sächsische Winzergenossenschaft Meissen and the Brauhaus Radebeul have presented the new beer-wine hybrid "Bennobräu". After several trials, a white wine with a high acid content was added to the brewing process and brewed with it. After one week of fermentation and three weeks of maturing in the tank, the Bennobräu has now been bottled as sparkling wine. The makers see the idea behind the drink as being similar to that of a vintage sparkling wine, because each vintage should have its own nuances of taste, both in wine and hops. The producers also recommend Bennobräu as a sparkling wine alternative.
