Alfred Oberlindober is the ninth generation direct descendant of the Schlomram family to run the brewery. Schonramer prides itself on brewing beer in a very traditional style using modern technology. It is the only brewery in the world to use a single barely malt strain called Barke, four times tthe price of other barley Malt. This strain has 2 characteristics that set it apart. First it brews up ver y elegant beers with floral notes of rose petals, violet, and lavender. Secondly, the barely malt when used exclusively gives tthe beers a viscose quality such that when consumed the beers will actually coat and lubriccate your throat. Thus the more beer you drink the more beer you can drink.
