The only difference is the size of the bottle. 330ml bottles are called Zäpfle, otherwise the 500ml bottles, kegs and barrels are called by it's generic name, Pils.

Why are there Pine cones on the label?
Tannenzäpfle translates as 'Little fir cone' and is the Red Fir Pine cone which is predominant in the area of the brewery.

Her surname 'Kraft' means strength, and when added to her first name it translates into 'Beer is good and gives strength'.

What Hops are used in Rothaus beers?
There are two types of Hops used in the production of Rothaus beers. The Tettnang Hop, and the Hallertau Hop. Both are aroma Hops with a lower yield but a higher aroma quality and bitterness. It is the balance of these Hops which creates the different characters in the beers, and is a closely guarded secret. Many breweries utilise cheaper bitter hops, but these produce less flavorsome beers.

Yes, Rothaus beers are 100% animal and fish free, and suitable for vegan drinkers.
