OMB adheres strictly to the Reinheitsgebot, which is the original Beer Purity Law of 1516 prohibiting the use of inferior ingredients and classifies Premium quality beer as containing four ingredients: barley or wheat malt, hops, yeast and pure water. OMB is committed to making only the best beer possible and will not take shortcuts in the brewing process that save time and money. All OMB beers are lagered (cold conditioned) on the yeast after primary fermentation. This process requires expensive storage (lager) tanks which have to be kept cold (around 32 F) year round. However, the results are worth it. The difference between a beer just after primary fermentation and one that’s been lagered for three weeks is enormous. Great beer… whatever it takes!
