Four ingredients, endless variety

For many of us, beer is simply a part of life. On holiday, at a barbecue with friends, at the stadium. Easy. But the cult drink can do much more, with or without alcohol! It can be a sensory adventure, taste like smoke or fruits. It can bring friends together and convey a way of life. Beer is as diverse and exciting as our Hanseatic city: in every district there are different highlights and preferences. The breweries of the districts come together at Beer Week 2023 (#HHBW23) and show how exciting beer can be.

Over 40 locations, two boat tours and a festival to top it all off

Beer Week is taking place in Hamburg for the third time and makes beer a tangible experience. Tastings, brewing workshops, brewery tours, art exhibitions and concerts will take place in over 40 locations from 8 to 17 September (an overview of all participating locations can be found here). In addition to a selection of exceptional regional and international beers, you can also savor the festival's exclusive brew, the HAZY HOPPY HELLES. This refreshing beer boasts a subtle fruity note, making it a must-try.

This year's Beer Week commenced on September 13th with the Brewers Boat Cruise. The festivities continue with another exciting HHBW Celebration. On September 16th and 17th, 14 renowned breweries will gather at Oberhafen to delight beer enthusiasts with their exceptional brews.

Creative, regional, international: the programme

Hamburg is brimming with culinary delights and a diverse program of events awaits. Here are just a few highlights: For the first time ever, Braustättchen at Fischmarkt is hosting a mini beer festival featuring six breweries. Meanwhile, Bunthaus Schankraum is the place to be for the traditional Sour Crowd Fest, featuring nine distinct sour beers on tap. Additionally, there are several enticing beer workshops to explore at Braumarkt.

Exclusive festival beer: the HAZY HOPPY HELLES

Discover the taste of Hamburg for yourself during Beer Week by sampling the HAZY HOPPY HELLES! This unique brew is the result of collaboration among 21 Hamburg breweries spanning different corners of the city, and it was crafted at the Landgang brewery.

They included established companies such as Ratsherrn, Landgang, ÜberQuell, Buddelship and Wildwuchs, but also newcomers like the Brauboys, Locksmith Brewing or Winterhuder Bier.

The outcome is a delightful, characterful, and lightly fruity Helles that's sure to please everyone. You can purchase the Hazy Hoppy Helles at select bottle shops, beer retailers, and, of course, at all participating Beer Week venues.

One beer for Hamburg Exclusively for the Beer Week: HAZY HOPPY HELLES

What does Hamburg taste like? That's easy to find out. The exclusive HAZY HOPPY HELLES, a co-brew from 21 breweries from different parts of the city, tastes slightly fruity and has character.
