Frequently Asked Questions
How do you pronounce Seipp?
In German “e” before “i” results in a long “i” sound. This might help—Seipp rhymes with words like hype and type. To make it even easier just memorize this—believe the hype, Seipp is your type.
What types of beer did Seipp make?
We know of at least five styles produced at the Conrad Seipp Brewing Company. The Extra Pale and the Salvator (a double bock) were the best sellers. There was also a Hollander, an Export (the German version of an IPA), the Columbia (a beer made for the 1893 World’s Fair) and a near beer called Malt Sinew.
Why am I just hearing of Seipp now?
You didn’t study your beer history closely enough! We’ll forgive you.
