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).


Pils and Lager

A golden-yellow pilsner with its fine head is probably the best known beer. Internationally it can also be also be called “lager”, a generic style. Pilsener is named after the Bohemian town of Pilsen, where it comes from. With an original wort of about eleven per cent and an alcohol content of 4.8 per cent, Pils is a “Vollbier” and more hopped than others. In order to attain the fruity character of a top pilsner, only the best hops from the best growing regions are used.

Varieties: Lager between 4.4% - 5.0%, light beer 2.7%, alcohol-free lager
