Eichbaum Beer

Eichbaum beers are brewed strictly according to the Reinheitsgebot (purity law) of 1516; the oldest, still valid food law in the world. According to it, only malt, hops, yeast and water may be used to brew beer giving Eichbaum a distinctive quality and taste.

Eichbaum dates from 1679; a Walloon, Jean du Chène established a brewery with its own tavern, which he named Eichbaum - his surname in German (oak tree in English). It is the oldest brewery in Mannheim, and although it has been at different locations since, its headquarters have always been in the city and it is one of the leading breweries in Baden-Württemberg.

Eichbaum Lager - Baden-Württemberg lagers are traditionally less strongly hopped and taste a little sweeter than those from other regions. Eichbaum is a light yellow colour with a malty aroma and a round, slightly sweet flavour.

Eichbaum Premium Pils - a light golden colour with a malt based aroma and highlighted citrus and floral hop notes. The taste is well balanced, initially of sweet malt, then a dry bitter finish.

Eichbaum Hefeweizen - is a bright wheat beer, just slightly cloudy, with a 50% wheat malt content. Medium bodied, it is fruity and aromatic with spice and citrus notes.

Eichbaum Dunkel - is a dark wheat beer with an emphasis on a nose of aromatic malt notes. Light fruity flavours lead into the taste that is tangy and mild with slight bitterness.
