The “Brauring” encompasses 230 medium-sized private breweries in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Only the privately-brewed premium beers of the “Brauring” member breweries are awarded the “Brauring” Quality Mark, after a thorough preliminary review and in accordance with mutually agreed guidelines. Independent institutes strictly monitor adherence to quality criteria at the same time.

This beer is brewed in accordance with German Purity Law exclusively for the catering business of the “Gräfrather Hof GmbH” and is served with state-of- the-art beer-cooling technology in a specially designed glass.
It is produced without preservatives and thus is categorized as a “Frischbier”, or green beer.
Beer consumption in the two establishments jumped to over 1000 hl within one year due to the popularity of the beer! Because of the great demand, the beer was additionally sold in specially-produced 10 l containers. All customers can now purchase a cooled 10 l mini-barrel at an introductory price of only €27.50 (plus €30.00 deposit) in both breweries.
