In 1824 a small country brewery in Grevenstein, Germany, began brewing beer conforming to the German Purity Law. Over 180 years later it had evolved into one of the most modern private breweries in Europe: C. & A. VELTINS. This unique success story behind the family run company, now in the fifth generation, is based on investment strength, farsighted enterprise, and a corporate culture moulded by both team spirit and the highest quality claims in equal measure. To this very day, this premium beer is still being brewed exclusively from the highest quality ingredients – malt, hops, yeast, and purest spring water – strictly in compliance with the Purity Law of 1516. The water from the mountain springs all around Grevenstein is unusually soft.
GREVENSTEINER C & A VELTINS
The first beer brewed by Carl and Anton Veltins was an unfiltered malty Kellerbier and was called Grevensteiner. This unfiltered country beer is brown and ruby highlights, slightly hazy with a brilliant white head. The body is rich and malty with a clean crisp slightly hoppy finish. Grevensteiner uses whole leaf hops and traditional ancient malts to recreate the true original beer of the brewery.
