DK PublishingDK Publishing 2/07/2014 DKBooks


Lange Zeile 1+3, 85435, Erding, Germany

This is the biggest and most famous specialist wheat beer brewery in the world. The first mention of a brewery at Erding was in 1886, but it was not until 1949 that the name Erdinger Weissbräu was used.

Brewing secret

Fresh spring water and hops from the Hallertau region are used in brewing.

Darker and heavier bodied than the normal weizen. It is available between October and February.
