Record Breaking Number of Breweries


The town of Aufsess is listed in the Guinness Book of Records since 2001 for having four breweries for 1400 inhabitants. This is one brewery per 350 residents, more than anywhere else in the world.

The record-breaking breweries can be visited by hiking along a 13 km long brewery trail. The trail meanders through beautiful the countryside and past all four breweries where you can stop for a visit. Brewery tours are available upon reservation only.

After you make your rounds and sample all four hearty, dark home brews, you will be honored at the end of the trail with the title of Honorable Beer Drinker of the Record-Breaking Breweries.

The breweries produce mostly bottom-fermented, dark beers. These beers are served primarily in the breweries’ own proprietary inns and but can also be purchased on site in either bottles or kegs.

The Brewery Queen “Julia I” is representing the record-breaking community of Aufsess since 2006.
