There are more than 1300 breweries in Germany and over 13,600 breweries worldwide. But what sets Krombacher beer apart? The Krombacher success story began more than 200 years ago. Established in 1803,the Krombacher brewery has been owned by the Schadeberg family for many 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. 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 is brewed exclusively in Krombach, located in one of Germany's most densely forested regions at the foot of the Rothaar Hills. The famous spring water of Krombach Krombacher Felsquellwasser® is the most important ingredient in Krombacher beer. Its truly unique character makes it ideal for the high art of beer brewing. Krombacher Felsquellwasser® is exceptionally soft and low in minerals making it indispensable for the rich, incomparable Krombacher flavour. Krombacher beers owe their unique flavour to carefully selected certified hops. The moment the hops are delivered, master brewers inspect them meticulously and only top-quality ingredients find their way into the brew kettles.
This unique Dark Pilsner is well balanced and extremely easy to drink. Brewed in a traditional manner using selected roasted malt that lends it a particular depth of flavour combined with the famous Felsquellwasser®.
