“The Aktien Brewery is in Kaufbeuren Bavaria is where they have been brewing beer since 1308 (considerably longer than most of their German counterparts) & 200 years before the German Purity Laws of 1516 the famous Reinheitsgebot…”
“Today, the Aktien Brewery continues to exclusively use only the finest locally grown Hallertau hops and grains from the same local farms they have been using for over 700 years”.
It is therefore one of the oldest and also one of the most decorated breweries in the region
Of all the many beers produced, the vast majority have never been supplied outside a 30km radius of the town and we have selected four on draught for the UK market – 4.2% Fels, 5.0% Hell, 5.0% Dunkel & a 5.3% Hefeweizen.. The 5.0% Hell has just been awarded ‘Supreme Champion at the 2018 International Beer Challenge Awards’.
Various support is also available including ‘Meet The Head Brewer’ and Educational Trips to the Brewery.
We’ve been Brewing Beer since 1308. Over 700 and we’re still Brewing strong. For us, its always been a craft.
Our award winning Bavarian beers produced in Kaufbeuren use only four of the finest ingredients: Barley, Hops, Yeast and Pure Water.
All other ingredients are banned.
We give our Beers sufficient time to mature within the storage Cellars to get its unique taste – six to ten weeks depending on the Beer type from Brewhouse into Keg or Bottle.
