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).


Weizen or Weißbier

Weizenbier (wheat beer) has to contain at least 50 per cent of wheat malt. Since it is stored in pressurised conditions, it retains comparatively much carbon dioxide. This and its fruity taste make it so refreshing and very popular in summer.. Hefeweizen is cloudy and much more full-bodied than the filtered, fizzy Kristallweizen. The beer’s colour is determined by the malt that is used. The spectrum here ranges from pale, golden-yellow to dark-brown. Kristallweizen is mostly pale.

Varieties: Hefeweizen hell (pale), Hefeweizen dunkel (dark), Hefeweizen alkoholfrei (alcohol-free)
