Wildshut, a token of love
to our beer
Austria’s first beer farm
Hops & ancient grains
Being real brewers, Stiegl grows its own grains at the Wildshut farm and uses them as ingredients for brewing its beer.
Special ancient grains are cultivated and then processed in our own malting and roasting plant. The ancient grains are grown in an 8-year crop rotation and serve as a raw material for Wildshut beer specialties such as “Sortenspiel”, “Gmahde Wiesn” and “Männerschokolade”. The brewery’s organic farm includes also two hop gardens
Malting & roasting plant
It's exciting to play around a bit during the malting process and create brand-new beer types and styles.
The globally unique combination of malting and roasting plant at the Wildshut Stiegl estate, means we can refine our home-grown ancient grains as we see fit. We now refer to the malting and roasting plant as a real experimental kitchen, where a wide variety of tastes are created. After all malt is the "beer spice" and gives each beer its own unique taste and its special colour.
In Austria’s first solid wood brewery, our master brewer brews the Wildshut beer specialties.

In addition, the Wildshut ancient grain is used as an opportunity to revive the original brewing method and to brew a "Wildshuter Urbier" (Wildshut Rustic Beer), which is stored in large Quevris barrels until March of the following year Also, there is a distillery used for the production of fine spirits and whiskey.
"Kråmerladen" bistro and souvenir shop
The small but fine bistro and souvenir shop as well as our beer garden invite our guests to rest
Enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the Wildshut Stiegl estate while savouring a Wildshut beer and some of our homemade delicacies. In our beer estate, we serve mainly beer and bread. In the “Krämerladen” shop there is the chance to take a piece of Wildshut home in the form of Wildshut beers, Wildshut salts or even a piece of lardo from the Mangalitza pig breed.
The guesthouse is an ideal retreat for those who seek relaxation and have a joy of discovery.
We have deliberately dispensed with Wi-Fi and televisions in the rooms in order to focus on soothing, natural pine wood beds that ensure a relaxed sleep.

Come over and enjoy the Wildshut Stiegl estate as a magical place of tranquility!

The Stiegl brewery of Salzburg is Austria’s oldest private brewery.
For more than 525 years, sustainability, regionality, local value creation and, above all, the quality of beers have been the top priority. The prerequisites are, of course, the best possible raw materials that can grow on a healthy soil. The Stiegl brewery, too, benefits from the experience of the Wildshut Stiegl estate. After all, with more than 20 different beers, this is the brewery with the most varieties in Austria.

You can live sustainability right from the beginning of your trip to Stiegl-Gut Wildshut.
For a sustainable journey to the Wildshut Stiegl estate we recommend a trip on the Salzburg local railway, which stops close to the beer farm at “Gut Wildshut” every hour. Of course, it is also possible to get there by car – and there are plenty of parking spaces available in our large parking lot opposite the beer farm. When coming by bike from Salzburg, the “Tauernradweg” cycle path running along the river Salzach will lead you directly to the entrance gates of the Wildshut Stiegl estate.
Our Mangalitza pigs roll and wallow under the shade of fruit trees as they would in their natural habitat.
The Hungarian pigs were already threatened with extinction but within our area they live in their own small kingdom. They are kept to preserve the breed but we also profit from their especially tender meet.
Around the orchard our Sulmtaler chicken are searching for their nutrient-rich fodder.
The special race is known as vivid and are especially skilled in searching their fodder. Neither rain nor snow would stop them during their search for food. The fact that they move a lot and have a lot of space, as well as their nutrient-rich fodder, makes the meat and the eggs especially tasty.
At the Stiegl estate the repressed dark bee finds a new home.
The special race which was threatened with extinction was resettled with 25 bee colonies at the beer farm. Within the production circle we try to take special care of the worker bees, therefore the honey is carefully pressed out of the honeycombs instead of shaking it out.
With the breeding of the spotted vineyard snail, we promote the circular economy in Wildshut.
At their territory the less known “beer farm snail” has its place at the Stiegl estate and finds its fodder in the vegetable garden next to the enclosure. Per kilogram snails-meat, only two kilograms of vegetable waste is needed, compared to beef, almost nothing.
Old fruit varieties
Traditional fruit varieties create biodiversity and habitat at the Stiegl estate.
Not only animals and races slowly disappear from nature, but fruit varieties are also faced with the same problem. At the first beer farm in Austria threatened apples and pears were refined and provide living space for wild bees inside their trunks.
Inside the water house the water which is used to brew our special Wildshut beer is being prepared.
Beer contains up to 90% water – therefore high-quality beer can only be brewed with high-quality water. Due to the newly dug fountain the water at the Stiegl estate is very soft and inside the water house most of the possible pollutants that could affect the water quality are filtered.
Bread is baked according to old traditions under open sky at the Stiegl estate.
Like in ancient times at old farms the bread oven is located outdoors between our guesthouse and the Moarhaus. During our backing seminars the oven is in full use and the participants have the chance to experience the taste of freshly baked bread out of the bread oven.

Driven by nature
Body, mind and soul need a healthy balance between stress and relaxation. This is what nature is about. At times everything sprouts and grows, and other times are for retreat and resting. Our Wildshut Stiegl estate is the ideal place to do just thatHeinrich Dieter & Alessandra Kiener
