Cannewitz is a tiny place which is part of Grimma, a small town to the Southeast of Leipzig. Surprisingly, since the brewery closed in 1999, there are still beers available under the Cannewitzer name. They're brewed at the Glückauf brewery, around 100 km further south, but Still in Saxony.
This the current beer range:
|Cannewitzer beers in 2015|
|Cannewitzer "Nerchauer Pumpernickel"||Schwarzbier||11.7º||4.9%|
|Cannewitzer "Gold Quell" Hell||Helles||11.7º||4.9%|
|Cannewitzer "Wilder Robert" Pilsner||Pils||11.5º||4.9%|
|Cannewitzer „Disco Cola“||Cola||-||0%|

Looks to me like there are only really four beers as the three Pilsners look remarkably similar. Who wouldn't want to drink something called Disco Cola?
This is what they usede to brew:
Three beers have the same name as DDR-period brews. Though the Nerchauer Pumpernickel has transformed itself from Pilsator to Schwarzbier.
I may continue this series. Depending on how easy it is. And if there's some audience interest. Though the latter is optional.
