Up until the Second World War, dark beer was the predominant beer type in the Munich area.
The hard water found in the region played a special role in producing this specialty. In his book “Beer International”, the world-renowned English beer writer, Michael Jackson, accurately describes the Ayinger “Altbairisch Dunkel” as: “A good example of its kind. Impenetrably dark with a golden-brown gleam when held up to the light, and with a warm aroma and malty taste, while summoning up coffee taste sensations on going down. It is brewed from five types of malt (two of which are torrified dark), and it is only lightly hopped.”
It is produced using the traditional double fermentation process.
Magic Rocks first take on the most popular of modern beer styles.
Munich and Golden Promise malts create the pale colour and classic backbone, while a concoction of Germany’s finest Magnum, Saphir Whole Leaf and Hallertau hops deliver a refined bitterness and characteristic herbal hit.
True to style using soft water, a bottom fermenting yeast strain and extended cold maturation to deliver the style’s distinctive subtle depth.
A lightness of body and spritzy carbonation will make this beer dance on your palate with a big whack of aromatic dry hopping.

A true classic of essential Munich and Bavarian food and drinks. Clear and sparkling bright golden in the glass, crowned by a pure white head, it is usually drunk in the shade of a chestnut tree according to tradition.
A beer which always goes down well: mild, elegant malts with a hint of sweetness and a soft hint of hops in the background. This is pure Bavarian life style!
Malt: Pilsner malt (light barley malt)
