The name Altenburger has always stood for quality. But there is more to it than that: The Altenburger brewery team has not only committed itself to outstanding quality with the name, but also promises to always give its best.
The beer from Altenburg is down to earth, honest and independent. The small family business does not belong to any large corporation, but has the scepter in its own hands. The family stands up for its region and its people with a lot of commitment and responsibility: the team employs more than 50 people, the Altenburger brewery is also a training company and trains young people with passion and enthusiasm. But the commitment to the region goes beyond that: the raw materials required for brewing are also obtained from farmers in the area. Beer with responsibility and passion is the brewery's guiding principle. The beer that comes out is also impressive: The brewery products of the Altenburger Brewery have already received numerous awards and not only inspire the jurors of international competitions.
Good beer has been brewed in Altenburg for a long time. The original Altenburg brewery was founded in 1871 and already had a substantial output back then. The good beer flows freely and in 1914 the Altenburger brewery is considered the most productive brewery in Thuringia. At the end of the 20th century, the brewery faces a major crisis: the first modern beers appear on the market and overtake their traditional, artisanal colleagues. But the Altenburg team does not give up. There is a Franconian family of brewers who take over the business with renewed vigor and passion and provide a breath of fresh air in the sacred halls of the brewery. Modernization measures are taken with care and caution, the heart and the basic principles of the Altenburger brewery remain unaffected. Today the company has regained its secure footing and not only supplies the region with its outstanding beer. The name Altenburger stands once again for delicious beer with passion and tradition.
