The recipe for the bit of Heaven that is Reutberger Export Hell (Hell is the German adjective for "light") was created by the Reutberg Cloister nuns so the beer could travel. They added larger amounts of hops and malts for a more concentrated lager without high alcohol (ABV is 5.1%). Open tank fermentation, low temperatures and slow lagering over 8 weeks make for a very dense and austere beer with a perfect balance of hops and malts. 16.9 oz bottle.

In the late 17th century the Franciscan nuns of Reutberg Cloister south of Munich began to brew beer for their own use. Over the years they developed several varieties of high quality beer for sale, continuing into the 20th century. In 1924 Father Alois Daisenberger and farmers of the region established a cooperative independent of the monastery to carry on the nuns' longstanding brewing traditions.
