Erding is known for two things: the largest thermal baths in the world and one of the most well-known wheat beers of all. Although the small town is otherwise not a place of superlatives, it is home to two world-famous institutions. With its countless saunas, swimming pools and slides, the Therme Erding attracts almost two million visitors a year. If you want to enjoy the fine Erdinger wheat beer, you don't have to go there. The traditional brewery now exports its beer to 106 countries around the world and we also have some of their bottles in stock.
The first brewery at today's location was founded in 1886. The Weisses Bräuhaus supplied the people of Erding with the finest wheat beer. The brewery fell into the hands of the Brombach family in 1935 when it was offered for sale to the managing director at the time, Franz Brombach. The enterprising gentleman took his chance and gave the brewery the name ERDINGER Weißbräu. Thanks to the hard work of Franz and his team, the annual output grew to 40,000. His son Werner joined the flourishing company in 1965 and brought a great vision with him: he wanted to make the good Erdinger wheat beer known throughout Germany. With an advertising jingle that quickly became an absolute catchy tune for decades to come, and the new name ERDINGER Weissbier, Werner's plan quickly took off. Austria became the first country to which the good wheat was exported, and dozens more followed. In the meantime, the historic brewery in Erding's old town was bursting at the seams. In order to meet the constantly growing demand, the brewery was supplemented with a new brewhouse and other structural changes. The visitor center has welcomed interested visitors since 2000.
The private brewery is still run by Werner Brombach and brews the finest wheat beer with passion and dedication. Their Bavarian roots are just as important to the Brombach family as high-quality beer with character and taste. As an ambassador of the Bavarian art of brewing, Erdinger Weissbier stands up for joie de vivre and enjoyment of their homeland in more than 100 countries. Together with two other Bavarian family breweries, Erdinger brought the Bavarian noble ripening to life: This promise of quality guarantees a second fermentation, which further intensifies the wonderful taste and makes the beer a real delicacy. When the brewery supplemented its core range with an alcohol-free example, it also positioned itself in the world of sports. Their isotonic beer became the go-to choice for athletes of all stripes and laid the foundation for an extensive sponsorship program.
