History of Opillia Firmove
This type of beer in particular was exported to Europe from Ternopil region, according to historical sources.
The brewers were forced to brew a large amount of beer in March due to both legislative and objective circumstances which were set by the The “German Beer Purity Act”, the most famous version of which was adopted in 1516. This act set the rules according to which all beer was to be brewed. First it was adopted in Bavaria and then in whole Germany.
The Duke was a prominent politician of his time and was remembered for turning Munich into a cultural center with one of the largest libraries.
However, he was also mostly associated with the introduction of “beer restrictions”, which gave the name to the “March beer”. The reasons were quite household. There were two main ones:
- One was due to the fact that during the warm season the probability of fires increased and brewing required the use of fire.
- And another one - the need to produce beer at bottom fermentation, which required quite low temperatures at 8-9˚C
