Hello and welcome to the beer-pope’s site.


My name is Conrad Seidl – and you may have heard that “Seidl” means a small measure or a glass of beer in many areas of the German speaking countries. That is right: Beer drinking vessels are called Seidel, Seidl, Seidla etc. in various regions – the term relates to the latin word “situla” for a small flask or mug. As I was born with such an inspiring name I decided to make “Bierpapst” (pope of beer) a registered trade mark.

In my day-to-day job I have been writing on politics for more than 35 years – and for about as long I have been writing about beer. Trust me: the latter is more fun. If you deal all day with politics you need a beer or two afterwards. This is how I started to sample beers like a sommelier, to evaluate them as a judge and write about breweries and their specific craft as a professional beer-writer.

I definitely have fun doing all this. I conduct beer seminars. I shoot beer videos, write beer books. I give lectures on beer history, hold beer dinners – and most of all I keep in touch with brewmasters as well as with beer consumers around the world.

Shall we meet for a beer? Maybe: Just get in touch and let’s see. Cheers!

Bierpapst

Das Heartwood Celebration Ale, das die Teilnehmer der Craft Brewers Conference 2010 in Chicago bekommen haben. Heute mit meiner lieben Frau genossen - Duft nach Kuchen, Zwetschken, Marillen. Scharf alkoholisch im Antrunk, dann aber immer weicher werdend und zum Nachtrunk hin angenehm bitter. Der Vanilleton der Holzfässer setzt in der Mitte des Trunks ein und bleibt lange nach dem Schlucken in Mund und Rachen. ... See MoreSee Less
