Erdinger WeissbräuAt the world's largest wheat beer brewery, tradition and progress go hand in hand: our beer is brewed according to traditional recipes, but using state-of-the-art technology. Today, beer connoisseurs in Germany and around the world regard our traditional specialty beers from Erding, Bavaria, as the ultimate in wheat beer enjoyment.
The beginnings of Erdinger Weissbräu date back to 1886, the year in which construction of a wheat beer brewery in Erding was first officially recorded. After several changes in ownership, the General Manager at the time, Franz Brombach, bought the brewery in 1935 and re-named it Erdinger Weissbräu on December 27, 1949.
In 1965, the son of Franz Brombach, Werner Brombach, entered the business. He took over the private brewery in 1975 and still leads his father's successful business today. In addition to a strong emphasis on quality, Werner Brombach focuses above all on a targeted sales and promotion strategy with a clear brand identity, which highlights the values of the old Bavarian beer specialty and its superior quality standards.
Today, Erdinger weissbier stands for wheat beer enjoyment and the Bavarian brewing tradition. With an output of over 1.45 million hl, some 400 employees and a sales network covering almost the entire globe, the traditional brewery has established itself as the national and international market leader for weissbier. As one of Germany's largest private breweries, Erdinger Weissbräu is among the leaders on the national German beer market.
- Whether at work, before driving or after sports, there are certain occasions where it is wiser to avoid alcohol. For those who don't want to miss out on the delicious taste of wheat beer, though, the solution is Erdinger Weissbier 'non-alcoholic'. It is brewed with the customary care and experience gained from over 110 years of brewing tradition and in accordance with the highest quality standards.
Erdinger's master brewers have succeeded in retaining the aromatic, full-bodied Erdinger character - even without alcohol. It is this unique flavor which has spread the fame of Erdinger Weissbräu far beyond the borders of Germany.

- Erdinger Champ is the ideal lifestyle wheat beer: it's brewed in such a way that it can be drunk straight from the bottle, but without compromising Erdinger's legendary flavor and high quality standards.

- Erdinger Weissbier 'dark' is a rich and smooth wheat beer specialty from Erdinger Weissbräu. It owes its full-bodied flavor to the fine hops and dark malt used in its production.
The dark beer specialty is brewed according to an age-old recipe. Its spicy flavor also results from the increased proportion (about 13%) of original wort. Nonetheless, at 5.6%, it doesn't contain much more alcohol than Erdinger Weissbier 'with fine yeast'.
Like all Erdinger wheat beers, this dark variety also acquires its typical flavor from maturing in the bottle. Years of brewing experience coupled with state-of-the-art technology guarantee its excellent quality.
A real specialty for connoisseurs.
- Erdinger Weissbier crystal is particularly welcome as a tasty thirst-quencher for hot summer days.
This specialty wheat beer gets its crystal appearance from a particularly long filtration process, known in the industry as "fine filtration", whereby the beer becomes completely clear.
This gives Erdinger Weissbier crystal its sparkling and refreshing character - which also makes it the ideal wheat beer for warm summer days.
Brewed in strict accordance with our own traditional recipe, Erdinger Weissbier crystal meets the highest quality standards and satisfies the most sophisticated palate.
- With more and more consumers watching their figures or making sure they're eating a balanced diet, there is a distinct trend towards alcohol in moderation.
Although Erdinger Weissbier Light has less alcohol and calories than normal wheat beer, its flavor is hardly different.
With an alcohol content of 2.9%, it has just half the alcohol and about 40% fewer calories than Erdinger Weissbier ‘with fine yeast'.
In terms of taste, though, Erdinger's light wheat beer is very similar to the brewery's classic "Hefeweissbier". Even dedicated wheat beer experts are said to have difficulty telling the difference and are full of praise for the full-bodied flavor of this wheat beer specialty.
The wheat beer for calorie-conscious connoisseurs
- For some people, Erdinger Weissbier Pikantus 'dark bock beer' is a delicacy to be enjoyed in the colder months of the year. For lovers of strong beer, however, the season for Pikantus lasts a full twelve months.
At 7.3% alcohol, this specialty wheat beer has a considerably higher alcohol content than other varieties produced by Erdinger Weissbräu. The dark bock beer owes its sharp and full flavor to the use of selected dark wheat and barley malts and a significantly longer maturing process.
In contrast to many bock beers, Erdinger Weissbier Pikantus 'dark bock beer' does not taste too sweet. Despite its higher alcohol content, Erdinger's master brewers have succeeded in retaining the smooth Pikantus flavor.
The wheat beer for lovers of strong beer.
- In December 1997 Erdinger Weissbräu decided to liven up the cold winter months with a new wheat beer specialty. This first beer specially brewed for the winter season was christened Erdinger Weissbier "snow-white".
Slightly darker and stronger than classic Erdinger Weissbier "with fine yeast", our new "snow-white" wheat beer is a welcome change during the cold winter months - the perfect time for a little indulgence!
Erdinger Weissbier "snow-white" uses the first malts from the summer harvest. It's not until mid October that the wheat beer specialty develops its amber color and spicy flavor - a result of its long maturing period. "Snow-white" goes particularly well with hearty food - something not uncommon during the Christmas season!
The seasonal beer is available from November to February.
Makes winter taste simply better!
- A cause for celebration among weissbier fans!
A particularly strong, spicy aroma, a distinctive yeast flavor and an unmistakable top-fermenting beer profile - these are the characteristics of ERDINGER's new family member in good old Bavarian tradition. The recipe for Urweisse dates back to the brewery's founding days over 120 years ago. It owes its distinctive, traditional weissbier flavor to a special malt, a different hop variety and a special yeast.
And as appearance is just as important, Urweisse has been given its own special look - which will especially please all friends of the "good old Bavarian tradition". The label features the historic "Beautiful Tower" of Erding. The Euro bottle and original glass awake memories of days gone by. The new crate is also particularly eye-catching with its historic wooden look and "scorched" lettering.
Best is to simply taste it for yourself! ERDINGER Urweisse is available in Bavaria from January 1, 2008 and from February 1 in Baden-Württemberg. Presentation cartons are available in the ERDINGER Fan Shop from January onward.
