Hachenburger Beer

The independent, private, family-owned brewery in Hachenburg, Germany is one of the oldest Pils-Brewery in Germany. Founded in 1861 by Heinrich Schneider the brewery is family-owned in the 5th generation. Jens Geimer is general manager and co-owner. About 90 dynamic and excellently trained employees ensure the customer-oriented implementation of the company’s goals.

For 150 years theyhave been brewing their unique quality beer, which truly deserves to be called a “speciality.” The use of 100% aroma-hops and extraordinarily soft brewing liquor, as well as an ageing process of six weeks are very important for the unique taste of Hachenburger. The fifth generation continues to work based on the knowledge, that these small but nice differences are necessary to brew beer specialities. Exactly like this they will pursue their mission for the next 150 years: “Preserving what is good and keeping an open mind for innovation.”
