Benediktiner Hell

Our pale lager beer boasts a mild taste and is a particularly popular choice on balmy summer days.


The light beer for the here and now.

Take it down a gear.

It’s good to slow down, and taking a break gives us a chance to refuel. This understanding has shaped the lives of the Benedictine monks at Ettal Abbey for centuries. 

These Benedictine principles are very apt for the lives of many of us today. It’s no wonder that outdoor activities such as hiking and cycling have become so popular. Those who spend time in the great outdoors, in the Ammergau Alps near Ettal Abbey, for example, are doing good for their body and mind. Leaving everyday worries behind, you can focus fully on your surroundings and savour in the beauty of the moment – while climbing to the summit or over a well-earned Benediktiner Hell beer at the end of the day.

„Tranquillity and taking time for the good of oneself, taking the utmost care in everything we do, showing respect for everything and for everyone. “

Benediktiner Hell is our typical Bavarian-style lager with a golden yellow colour, pleasant malty sweetness and low bitterness.
