There are more than 1,300 breweries in Germany. And over 13,600 breweries worldwide. The Krombacher success story began more than 200 years ago. Established in 1803, the Krombacher brewery has been owned by the Schadeberg family for generations. Long-term planning and short decision processes, reliability and trust – these are the qualities that have enabled the family company to grow from a regional supplier into one of Germany’s most successful premium beer brands. Krombacher is brewed exclusively in Krombach, located in one of Germany’s most densely forested regions at the foot of the Rothaar Hills.
The finest ingredients of outstanding quality
The famous spring water of Krombach – Krombacher Felsquellwasser® is exceptionally soft and low in minerals is the most important ingredient, its unique character making it ideal for the high art of beer brewing. The Krombacher beers owe their unique flavour to carefully selected certified hops, inspected by master brewers so only the top-quality ingredients find their way into the brew kettles. And lastly, the pure and original Krombacher taste experience is the result of the high-quality, genetically unadulterated, two-row summer barley. The fermentation process, using special yeast grown in Krombach, lasts six days. The young beer is then allowed enough time to mature before bottling.
The German art of brewing
German beer is renowned for excellence all over the world. One reason is the purity law of 1516 which requires that only water, malt, hops and yeast may be used in the production of beer. Krombacher beers use only these ingredients combined with cutting-edge technology to produce top quality beers based on the time-honoured, traditional art of brewing.
