At the world’s largest wheat beer brewery, tradition and progress go hand in hand: their beer is brewed according to traditional recipes, but using state-of-the-art technology. Today, beer connoisseurs in Germany and around the world regard their traditional specialty beers from Erding, Bavaria, as the ultimate in wheat beer enjoyment.
The beginnings of Erdinger Weissbräu date back to 1886, the year in which construction of a wheat beer brewery in Erding was first officially recorded. After several changes in ownership, the General Manager at the time, Franz Brombach, bought the brewery in 1935 and re-named it Erdinger Weissbräu on December 27, 1949.
In 1965, the son of Franz Brombach, Werner Brombach, entered the business. He took over the private brewery in 1975 and still leads his father’s successful business today. In addition to a strong emphasis on quality, Werner Brombach focuses above all on a targeted sales and promotion strategy with a clear brand identity.
ERDINGER Weissbier – the ultimate premium Weissbier
Erdinger Weissbier is not only the undisputed classic in the Erdinger product range, it is also quite simply the wheat beer par excellence.
It is brewed using fine yeast according to a traditional recipe and, of course, in strict accordance with the Bavarian Purity Law. Even today, the beer is still bottle-fermented in the traditional way; it takes three to four weeks for Erdinger Weissbier ‘with fine yeast’ to mature.
Only the finest ingredients are used in its production. Years of experience and constant quality checks guarantee the beer’s unmistakable flavor.
A wheat beer for those who love outstanding and unforgettable wheat beer flavor.
ERDINGER ‘non-alcoholic’ – the Sports and Fitness Drink
Whether at work, before driving or after sports, there are certain occasions where it is wiser to avoid alcohol. For those who don’t want to miss out on the delicious taste of wheat beer, though, the solution is Erdinger Weissbier ‘non-alcoholic’. It is brewed with the customary care and experience gained from over 110 years of brewing tradition and in accordance with the highest quality standards.
Erdinger’s master brewers have succeeded in retaining the aromatic, full-bodied Erdinger character – even without alcohol. It is this unique flavor which has spread the fame of Erdinger Weissbräu far beyond the borders of Germany.
Erdinger Weissbier ‘non-alcoholic’ thus represents a further top product in the Erdinger range and a genuine alternative to its other specialty wheat beers.
ERDINGER Dunkel – a wheat beer from the good old days
Erdinger Weissbier ‘dark’ is a rich and smooth wheat beer specialty from Erdinger Weissbräu. It owes its full-bodied flavor to the fine hops and dark malt used in its production.
The dark beer specialty is brewed according to an age-old recipe. Its spicy flavor also results from the increased proportion (about 13%) of original wort. Nonetheless, at 5.6%, it doesn’t contain much more alcohol than Erdinger Weissbier ‘with fine yeast’.
Like all Erdinger wheat beers, this dark variety also acquires its typical flavor from maturing in the bottle. Years of brewing experience coupled with state-of-the-art technology guarantee its excellent quality.
A real specialty for connoisseurs.
ERDINGER crystal – the famous Bavarian specialty
Erdinger Weissbier crystal is particularly welcome as a tasty thirst-quencher for hot summer days.
This specialty wheat beer gets its crystal appearance from a particularly long filtration process, known in the industry as “fine filtration”, whereby the beer becomes completely clear.
This gives Erdinger Weissbier crystal its sparkling and refreshing character – which also makes it the ideal wheat beer for warm summer days.
Brewed in strict accordance with our own traditional recipe, Erdinger Weissbier crystal meets the highest quality standards and satisfies the most sophisticated palate.
Erdinger is brewed in Bayern, Germany.
