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).



Schwarzbier (black beer) is no strong beer. It has an original wort of at least 11 per cent and is thus a “Vollbier”. Its alcohol level lies between 4.8 and 5 per cent and it is brewed in accordance with traditional recipes with state-of-the-art technology and know-how. It gets its very dark colour from special dark or roast malts.
