The smooth global brewing culture

A look back at the drinkable Global Beer Brewing Culture 2019
From 15. June to 12. October 2019 the city of Murau opened the cultural festival "muraubiennal" for the second time.

At the exhibition festival one had the opportunity to learn interesting facts about the history of beer all over the world and about the brewing history of the city of Murau. Own plays, readings and other creative conversions to the "fuel" beer rounded the program off. In addition, there was beer culinary and palatable beers, with and without alcohol.

Murau has been an official brewing town since 1298 and from 1495 Murauers have been drinking Murau beer. That is reason enough to put the world star beer in the centre of attention. In 2017 everything about Schwarzenberg took place within the "muraubiennal" summer exhibition. In summer 2019 the focus was on beer with its global significance.
