The Paulaner Brewery, founded by monks in 1634, has played a significant role in establishing Munich's reputation as the "Beer Center of the World." The monks began a still-standing tradition of slow, handcrafted brewing using only the four basic ingredients of brewing: barley, hops, yeast and water. Paulaner Brauerei AG is the leading brewery in Bavaria and the name Paulaner is known around the world. The brewery produces the world's number one selling Oktoberfest and is reknown for introducing the world's first Hefe-Weizen and Double Bock beers.
Great Britain invented the ales that define craft beer: pale ale, porter, IPA and stout, to name a few. Fuller's own brewers created ESB, a style that has come to epitomize the best of British brewing.
Anchored in centuries of experience, unyielding quality standards and a carefully crafted company culture of innovation and integrity, Fuller’s beers have received top ratings and accolades from experts and the general public alike. They have become the gold standard for British-inspired ales brewed in America and throughout the world.
The history of the Hacker-Pschorr Brewery can be traced back as far as 1417. It was founded in Munich, Germany, 99 years before the enactment of the Rheinheitsgebot Purity Law of 1516. The Hacker-Pschorr brewing process has remained virtually unchanged for over 580 years. Something this good just isn't fooled with.
