Strong beer tapping in the Schongau brewery: Lenten preacher reads the riot act to mayors


When the strong beer was tapped in the Schongauer Brauhaus, fasting preacher “Bruder Cengiz” took a close look at local politics. And had some advice ready.

When the strong beer was tapped in the Schongauer Brauhaus, fasting preacher “Bruder Cengiz” took a close look at local politics.

And had some advice ready.

Schongau – The Schongau audience knows him as a joker with a coarse and intelligent joke: the evening when he made his debut at the “Comedy Lounge” in the local brewery in December last year is unforgettable.

But the "Lausbua from Bad Reichenhall" - or "Austrian Turk or "Turkish Austrian" - as Cengiz Öztünc calls himself, can also be different: as "Brother Cengiz" in a monk's habit, he can decline local events up and down and belong to the local celebrities read the Levites.

This is what happened when the strong beer was tapped in the brewery, where, after tapping the keg with the “Faszinator 2023”, he spent a good hour scrutinizing everything that, in his opinion, urgently needed to be corrected in terms of local politics.

In any case, the 45-year-old was spoiled for choice in the jam-packed brewery - there were all sorts of illustrious gentlemen from the region in the audience, such as Falk Sluyterman, mayor of Schongau, his counterpart from Peiting, Peter Ostenrieder, and numerous other dignitaries, at whose desks the fortunes of their community are decided.

(By the way: everything from the region is now also available in our regular Schongau newsletter.)

"Yes, when does the Lord actually sleep?"

For example the said Ostenrieder.

"Where is he?

So far I only know him from his dashing Buildl with royal moustache”, he asked the group and advised him, after he had raised his finger a little shamefully, to work on his homepage.

Pages of CV, functions, supervisory work, personal club memberships and, and, and: Do you have to know all that?

And: "Yes, when does the gentleman actually sleep?" he asked with laughter.

He turned to the number one in the city of Schongau, Sluyterman, with the advice, among other things, to think about it thoroughly differently when it comes to the hospital.

That belongs "in the middle school, nice and central, bus station around, roundabout, it's fine".

It's also closer to the train station if there's a train going.

Falk, Falk, Falk!”

Anyway, a new, refurbished middle school: What is that supposed to mean?

May the mayor follow the example of the brewery.

That is now 160 years old and was only nursed back "about 20 years ago".

The result was "what Gscheit's and net scho back to school".

Point, over, end, amen.

So it went on across the vegetable patch.

Burggen’s mayor Sandra Brendl-Wolf, for example, praised Brother Cengiz for saying that she was “a rare specimen” and that she could definitely compete with her male colleagues, who are just teeming here in the country: “a woman in the mayor’s post, respect .

One that can't be bent."

It's also good that there is Anna Bader.

Unfortunately, she didn't become beer queen two years ago in the middle of the Corona period, but she rightly enjoys such popularity that she even gets three tickets the day before the brewery strong beer is tapped.

"Reshpekt!" That's what you call good relationships with the master brewer.

"Bottom up!"

But not only Brother Cengiz provided fun and entertainment - the focus of the several-hour evening with plenty of culinary and musical interludes was of course what everything in a brewery naturally revolves around: the royal beer, which this year bears the "Fastinator 2023" seal of approval.

Master brewer Stephan Albrecht created the Doppelbock with an original gravity of 18 and an alcohol content of 7.5 percent.

Exactly three taps were needed before Mayor Falk Sluyterman was able to announce to great applause: "O'zapft is!"
