Maxlrain hailed as “Germany’s Brewery of the Year 2016”

Coinciding with the 500th anniversary of the Bavarian Purity Law on Beer, the highly coveted FEDERAL HONORARY AWARD IN GOLD was conferred on MAXLRAIN CASTLE BREWERY, thus distinguishing MAXLRAIN as Germany’s Brewery of the Year 2016.

This supreme distinction goes to one single German brewery each year. Decisive for the award were the outstanding results obtained at this year’s trials staged by the German Agricultural Society (DGL) involving over 200 contestants, among whom Maxlrain was rated as Germany’s best brewery. The Maxlrain Castle Brewery has thus been nominated for the Federal Honorary Award for the ninth time in succession, including two golden awards. No other brewery has succeeded in qualifying for the award more often and to a higher degree over the past nine years.

18 DLG Golden Awards for Maxlrain Beer in 2016

It’s always the same every year. In early January many German breweries eagerly await the results of what can only be described as “the world’s most stringent beer trials”. The news is now official and we are delighted to announce a total of ten DLG golden awards conferred on our range of beers! A fantastic result and a proud token of acknowledgement once again to Master Brewer Sepp Kronast and his staff. All the more so when considering the amount of hard work invested by the whole team each day to meet the high quality standards imposed, mastered with aplomb and tradition-steeped skills.
