The Annafest (Since 1840) takes place each year at the end of July. It is in a forest just outside Forchheim in Northern Bavaria (Franconia), Germany. There are 24 Beer Cellars and seating for 30,000 guests and lasts 10 days. About 50,000 visitors come each day and beer is supplied by the local breweries in Forchheim and vicinity.
Kellerbier, also Zwickelbier, or Zoigl, is a type of German beer which is not clarified or pasteurised. Kellerbier can be either top- or bottom-fermented. The term Kellerbier literally translates as “cellar beer”, referring to its cool lagering temperatures, and its recipe likely dates to the Middle Ages. In comparison with most of today’s filtered lagers, Kellerbier contains more of its original brewing yeast, as well as vitamins, held in suspension. As a result, it is distinctly cloudy, and is described by German producers as naturtrüb (naturally cloudy). Kellerbier and Zwickelbier are often served directly from the barrel (for example, in a beer garden) or bottled.
