The “Simultoast” will kick off the city of New Braunfels' 175th anniversary celebrations scheduled to take place throughout the year to commemorate the founding of New Braunfels in 1845.
“When Prince Solms left Braunfels, Germany, and founded New Braunfels 175 years ago, he probably couldn’t have imagined this moment,” New Braunfels Mayor Barron Casteel said in a press release. “We are excited to raise a glass of German-style beer to our family in Braunfels to celebrate our shared history.”
Keith and Anna Kilker, owners of Guadalupe Brewing Co., traveled to Braunfels last summer to gather knowledge and ingredients, including German honey and malt, to add to the pilsner they brewed for the event.
Limited-edition bottles of the beer with a commemorative label will be available for purchase following the ceremony.
After the invitation-only toast, the brewery will reopen to the public for an afternoon celebration where the Simultoast pilsner will be available. For more information and tickets, visit www.guadalupebrew.com and www.since1845.com.
