Kosher beer called “Simcha” launched in Germany

by Beer

Simcha Pils - the He-brew!

“Simcha” is a new kosher beer that recently launched in Germany.  The brewery in Hartmannsdorf makes around 10,000 bottles of the beer a day.  If the beer becomes popular, they have plans to expand their market throughout Europe.  The light pilsner is 4.6% alcohol, and is a mix between the American style pilsner and the traditional pilsner.

The beer is “kosher” because the entire harvesting and processing methods are under control of a Rabbi.  There are no additives, and there are strict requirements for cleanliness in place which are closely supervised.

Simcha is the Hebrew word for joy.

I live in Denver, Colorado. This blog is everything about beer, wine, cider, mead and other spirits.
I am a avid homebrewer and winemaker. I’ve been making my own beer and wine for many years. I started making beer when I was in college (mostly because the drinking age in the United States is 21). My first few beers were horrible. The beers are much better now, and I often supply my neighborhood with free beer! It is a great hobby!
