WELCOME TO TUX1280
BEER WITH ATTITUDE BREWED AT ALTITUDE
TUX 1280 is the highest Craft Beer brewery in Austria and is located in the picturesque village of Tux-Lanersbach in the heart of the spectacular Tyrollean Alps. Tux-Lanersbach was officially registered in the year 1280AD and the brewery happens to be at 1280m above sea level. The sheer coincidence of the date and geographical location was the inspiration to brew the unique Craft beers under the banner “TUX1280″.
Using pure glacial spring water and fresh natural ingredients five delicious varieties of Craft Beer are brewed. The range of beers are delivered in distinctive bottles with striking label colours, they are the colour-codes of the mountain paths and ski routes of the Tyrollean Alps. We use traditional brewing methods and authentic ingredients and we are very proud of the pure, fresh and natural Craft beers that we produce. Our passion is for excellence and our drive is to reflect the breathtaking natural beauty of the Tuxertal region in our beers.
BELGIAN-STYLE WHEAT BEER
A lightly hopped blond wheat beer blended with fresh orange zest, coriander and camomile flowers all combined with Belgian-style yeast and the finest Austrian-sourced malts. A complex and golden beer filled with fruit-spicy aromas and flavours with a soft, mousse-like mouthfeel.
CHOCOLATE & VANILLA ENGLISH PORTER
The warm mocha coffee aroma of our Mountain Porter comes as a result of blending four different types of roasted malt together. The malt’s are complemented by the addition of Belgian chocolate nibs and Madagascan vanilla pods during the fermentation period. These combinations make our burnt-wood coloured Mountain Porter a rich, complex and smooth-tasting beer with a long and clean finish.
RASPBERRY WHEAT BEER
Our striking fruit beer recipe is based upon our pale lightly hopped wheat beer. We pay particular attention to preserving the malt-spicy core taste whilst simultaneously emphasising the sweet and sour fruitiness of raspberries. The refreshingly crisp fruitiness, intense raspberry aroma and rich red colour come from the addition of bucket-loads of whole raspberries during maturation.
INDIAN PALE ALE
Using a 150-year old recipe we combine Amarillo, Apollo, Centennial and Citra hops to give a complex fruity aroma to provide a bitterness that make our beer so refreshing. A light brown ale that delivers complex hoppy aromas, fruity citrus flavours and a bitter finish – a truly refreshing experience. At TUX1280 we re-create the flavours of the World’s first great India Pale Ale.
ALPINE AMBER ALE
Brewed with 5x aromatic hop varieties and 5x fine malts all fused together to create a particularly intense flavour with warm notes of fresh pine and caramel. This rich amber- coloured ale is defined by the perfect balance of a high alcohol strength and a broad range of ingredients – a robust bitter flavour that delivers a pleasant soft mouth-feeling and smooth finish. Tux Green is known locally as ‘mountain rescue’ and a percentage of the profit from the sale of this beer is donated to the local mountain rescue team.
The Tuxertal is a valley located in Tyrol, Austria. A side valley of the Zillertal, from which it branches at Mayrhofen, the Tuxertal is about 13 km long and accessible on the Tuxer Straße (Tux Road). From Mayrhofen (630 m (AA)) to Hintertux (1500 m) in the municipality of Tux, the village that gives the valley its name, there is a height difference of about 850 m. The valley ends at Hintertux and the Hintertux Glacier. The Tuxbach, which rises near Hintertux, flows as far as Mayrhofen where it empties into the River Ziller.
