Beer enjoyment

Our private alpine brewery BÜRGERBRÄU is located where nature is still in order, in the heart of the Upper Bavarian spa town of Bad Reichenhall, in the midst of the magnificent alpine world of Berchtesgadener Land, close to the Alpine National Park and the Austrian World Heritage city of Salzburg.

Since 1494

According to the oldest document still in existence, beer has been brewed here since 1494, in accordance with the “Reichenhall Purity Law” issued the year before by the Wittelsbach Duke Georg the Rich.

In 1901, August Röhm, the great-grandfather of today’s brewer, Christoph Graschberger, acquired the brewery and gave it the name “BÜRGERBRÄU”.


With 19 varieties of the best beer specialties and numerous awards, the brewery is today a guarantor of Bavarian beer culture far beyond the region. The company’s constant efforts to achieve the highest quality are recognized annually with the “Prize for Longstanding Product Quality” awarded by the German Agricultural Society (DLG). In our anniversary year 2019, we were also able to accept the highest honor to be awarded by the German brewing industry for the second time: the Federal Honorary Award of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture for “many years of outstanding achievements in the production of beer”.


Craft brewed - rooted in tradition

Beer is still brewed by human hands in our family brewery, with all senses and great personal commitment. We do this with conviction on the basis of traditional as well as newly conceived recipes, traditional brewing art, individual brewing processes, contemporary technology, the best raw materials from the region, ideal brewing water from the depths of the Alps, long maturing times and always in accordance with the “Reichenhall Purity Law” of 1493.

Yeast wheat light

BÜRGERBRÄU is one of the few breweries that continue to adhere to the elaborate, but qualitatively unsurpassed method of bottle fermentation. And exactly this difference separates the wheat from the chaff! The “Hefe-Weizen hell” has about 12.2% original wort (alc. 5.2% vol.).

Yeast wheat dark

Of course, this beer is also brewed with the classic bottle fermentation. And only in this way can this incomparably strong, characteristic taste at around 12.2% original wort (alc. 5.2% vol.) be created, in which the aromas of yeast and wheat combine with the carbon dioxide to create an absolute pleasure experience.

Light whiteness

The fact that our “Leichte Weiße” tastes so good and characteristic is due to the complex bottle fermentation with low alcohol content (alc. 2.9% vol.) and only 23 kcal. / 100 ml. With 7.4% original wort, the “Leichte Weiße” combines the full flavor of a traditional Bavarian wheat with modern lightness.

Nomen est omen: The strongest piece of BÜRGERBRÄU bears its name “Suffikator” with full justification: Because it is almost proverbially quaffable and a benefit for body and soul! With an original wort of 18.3% (alc. 7.3% vol.), it powerfully embodies the ideal type of Bavarian strong beer.

(alc. 7.0% vol.).
