Our company has more than 30 years experience in the licensing of "know-how" and our brands - the Royal Bavarian beer specialties.
The company is controlled and managed by HRH Prinz Luitpold von Bayern. He is a member of the Royal family of Bavaria. Their expertise in the brewing business can be traced back to 1260. Over almost 800 centuries they set such important milestones as the Purity Law of 1516, the wheat beer monopoly, the foundation of the Brewing University at Freising, the beer garden edict and the world famous Oktoberfest.
This legacy is an integral element of our beers and brands. Our brewing know-how, quality and brand management have been developed and
fine-tuned over the centuries.
No wonder that this quality performance is evidenced by our regular success in international beer competitions and quality evaluations, such as the DLG, WBA and European Beer Star.
