The Greif-Bräu family brewery has been brewing its beer specialties in Forchheim, Franconia, for over 150 years, making it a genuine Franconian original. Founded in 1848, the business is now run jointly by Christian Schuster senior and his son Christian Schuster junior. With its brewing specialties, the Greif brewery is part of the diverse Franconian brewing landscape.
With a lot of passion and many years of expertise, the Greif-Bräu offers a wide range of products. Both beers offered all year round, such as their Hell, Lager or Zwickl, as well as seasonal offers, such as the popular Christmas beer, are part of the range. The Greif brewery attaches great importance to combining innovation with tradition. So it is important to them to contribute to the preservation of traditional values and to preserve the traditional beer culture. But you also want to be innovative about the future. That is why all beers are brewed exclusively from raw materials from the region using the latest technology. The Greif brewery does not shy away from modern interpretations of beer. Their range consists of many classic types of beer, but also other beer specialties, such as their low-calorie Greif-Bräu Cherry. The brewery also impresses with its popular Greif cellar in the city forest. This is a popular meeting place for young and old, and not just during the Anna Festival, which is well-known throughout Franconia. Freshly brewed Greif beer foams out of the barrel there for all beer lovers. The Schuster family has received numerous awards for their traditional Franconian craftsmanship. Only in 2021 did they receive gold at the World Beer Awards.
You can taste the care and many years of brewing experience of the family business with every sip you take of their excellent beer specialties and it is always a great pleasure.
