Sunday, September 23rd, 2012 New Year’s Eve
From September 24th until September 30th, there is a beer festival and the highlight of the festival is the so called Brausilvester, the breweries New Year’s Eve.
But lets start at the beginning. Hundreds of years ago, there was no possibility to cool beer during summer. Because beer needs to stay cool in order to be enjoyable, beer was only made during autumn/winter from September 29th until April 23rd. Therefore, the breweries New Year’s Eve was a celebration of the last and new beer season.
Although there are now sufficient possibilities to cool beer, the breweries New Year’s Eve stayed. Almost all of the breweries in Austria, and of course Salzburg offer special events for this occasion.
