Sünner was founded in 1830 on the “right” side of the Rhine River in the Deutz neighborhood of Cologne, when all other breweries were on the “left” bank. This is why their glasses say “Kölsch van seiner schönsten Seite” which translates to “Kölsch from the most beautiful Side”.
At the site in Deutz the Sünner family built a brewery and distillery, both are still used today. It is one of the most beautiful brewhouses in Germany and a charming setting from which the Original Kölsch originates.
Sünner is still 100% under family control, they are still on the right side of the river and their beer, if not the neighborhood, is certainly the most beautiful in all of Cologne.
