ERDINGER Weißbräu – private brewery since 1886
Quality, enjoyment, tradition and a cosmopolitan outlook – these are the values of Privatbrauerei ERDINGER Weißbräu. For over 125 years, our passion for Bavarian brewing skills has inspired us to produce wheat beers of outstanding quality.
What makes the private brewery so successful?
Above all one thing: ERDINGER has remained true to itself. This philosophy is personified by Werner Brombach, an owner who has always politely declined all offers to buy his brewery and prefers to keep the reins firmly in his own hands. Enjoyment of life, reliability and consistency are the main pillars of our corporate culture. The quality and flavor of his wheat beer mean everything to Werner Brombach – he accepts no compromises. In this respect, he’s just like his father Franz Brombach, the company’s long-serving CEO who was offered the chance to buy the brewery in 1935. Annual output at the time was around 3,500 hectoliters (hl) and beer was sold exclusively in the Erding district. Franz Brombach guided the local brewery through the turmoil of the war years and lay the foundation for its success in the post-war period. In 1965 when his son Werner Brombach joined the company, annual output had reached 40,000 hl and the brewery bore the proud name ERDINGER Weißbräu.
