Around 13,000 years ago, the Laacher See volcano in the Eifel erupted, laying the foundation for the Vulkan brewery. Today only the 30 meter deep beer cellar of the brewery is a reminder of this, deep underground. 153 steps lead into the deepest storage and fermenting cellar in the world and give a glimpse of the immense force of nature.

From Roman times to the 19th century, volcanic rock was mined in Mendig, the seat of the Vulkan brewery, to produce millstones. This created deep quarries, which the inhabitants of the region took advantage of. Because thanks to low temperatures and high humidity, the quarries are ideal as fermentation and storage cellars. These unique basalt rock cellars helped the town of Mendig to become well known and attracted numerous brewers to the region. Of around 28 breweries, however, only the Vulkan brewery survived and brews its excellent brewing specialties on site to this day.

The deep connection to nature prompted the brewery to convert its production entirely to energetic systems and regionally produced raw materials as early as 2011. In addition, in 2012 they laid an important cornerstone in the direction of modernity and innovation with a complete renovation and new construction of the brewhouse, storage and fermenting cellar and the installation of state-of-the-art brewing equipment. The brewery tries to save as much energy as possible by using less material, avoiding glass breakage and fewer disruptions to the bottling plant. That year, the brewery then switched its entire production to organic beer and has been producing 100% climate-neutral ever since. Thanks to the use of the most modern brewing technology and energetic systems, the Vulkan brewery produces its beer as energy-efficiently and with as few emissions as possible. All CO2 emissions that nevertheless occur are attempted to be offset directly, for example by promoting international climate protection projects. The topic of sustainability and regionality plays an immensely important role at the Vulkan brewery, which is why over 90% of the raw materials come directly from the Vulkaneifel. Short transport routes, special quality standards and a transparent value chain are just a few of the advantages that result from this.

These high quality standards and the care taken in the selection of regional products are of course reflected in the taste of the beers from the Vulkan brewery. All beers are unfiltered and of the best organic quality and therefore a natural taste experience. The Vulkan brewery has already won numerous awards for its magnificent beers in the Eifel. In 2020, for example, the Bourbon Barrel Doppelbock won in the category "Germany's best beer" at the World Beer Awards. The Pils was also awarded gold.

The passion for beer and the deep connection to the Vulkaneifel have been driving the Vulkan brewery for decades. They have managed the balancing act between stability and change like hardly any other German brewery.
