More than 335 years ago, Jean de Chaine from Wallonia founded a brewpub in Mannheim which he named after the germanised version of his family name: Eichbaum. This has become one of the largest and most efficient breweries in Baden-Württemberg. It is the oldest company in Mannheim but also one of the most modern, with state-of-the-art bottling and brewing technologies and an annual output of 1.8 mn hl. More than 16 different beers and a huge number of trading units make Privatbrauerei Eichbaum an attractive partner.

It is the combination of many decades of brewing experience and state-of-the-art technologies that allows Privatbrauerei Eichbaum to produce such a huge number of beverages. And we always use select ingredients and various brewing processes, which also makes for this huge variety. The Eichbaum portfolio is characterised by an elegant product design, combining the afore-mentioned tradition and latest technologies.

335 years of experience for Eichbaum’s beer specialities

You wonder why the Eichbaum beer specialities are so delicious? Probably because all our beers contain more than 335 years of Palatine brewing traditions and experience. And probably also because our master brewers always win gold medals. We don’t try to do it the easy way when it comes to such proof of our products’ quality. We therefore do not choose special beers but for the DLG tests nominate our most popular ones from the latest production batches (DLG = Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft e. V.; German Agricultural Society).
