Other Information

Brinkhoff’s No.1 is a German pilsner from Brauerei Brinkhoff in Dortmund, Germany. Brinkhoff’s No.1 was first brewed in error in 1887 and this ‘false brew’ was accidentally sent to a customer – however, the recipe was a runaway success with drinkers. Brinkhoff’s No.1 was born, and has been brewed ever since! Pouring a golden colour, Brinkhoff’s No.1 offers aromas of biscuit malt, grassy hops and toffee. The flavour is crisp and malty, with a moderate, earthy bitterness. Buy Brinkhoff’s No.1 for a well-balanced, authentic German pilsner that almost didn’t make it into existence.

  1. James Martin

    Throughly enjoyed this beer in Dortmund, and this is the real deal. Being imported from Dortmund it tastes the exact same. An easy to drink session beer but doesn’t compromise the flavour in the process. Would highly recommend.

  2. Steven Palmer

    Less well known outside of Dortmund but has a classic authentic Dortmund style and taste. Clean taste and not overpowering.

  3. Allan

    First tried draught at the Westfalenstadion (Borussia Dortmund) and was impressed – transfers well to a bottle. Good, simple lager with minimal gas for a mass-produced beer. Certainly worth trying.

  4. Derek B

    Very moreish!!
    I really enjoyed this pils, it tastes like a less intense Jever but none the worse for that. I certainly will be drinking more of it.

  5. Steven Allen

    This is a slightly hoppy lager with a malty finish , very fizzy and plenty of flavour. It compares very favourably to any of the mass produce lagers, that are available from supermarkets. Nothing remarkable but I could easily have this as my” go to ” lager. I give it 4 stars but wanted to give 3.5.

  6. Andy Nichols

    Nice classic pils. Pretty balanced. One of those you’d need to compare to your preferred pils.

  7. Chris

    Standard Pils, well balanced with a nice clean taste. Also agree with the other review in regards to better than mass produced Pils, definitely something I’d drink again..

  8. Hywel Davies

    An excellent pilsener. Good price. Easy drinking. Served extra cold. Be awesome at a summer BBQ! Will be buying again

  9. Dean Griffiths

    First tried this one when I went to watch Dortmund play is they sell it inside and outside the stadium.

    Very nice smooth, Crisp Pilsner. Very light in colour with head that lasts and very low carbonation.

  10. Craig Cannell

    This is a crisp easy drinker. A Pilsner without any aftertaste, full of flavour.

  11. Ryan Davis

    As a regular visitor to Dortmund for football, I was over the moon to see this pilsner was stocked by Beers of Europe.

    It’s been a part of some of the best weekends, so always keep a regular stock at home!

    Great drop 👍🏻

  12. David Blears

    Brinkhoff‘s No 1 is the best beer in Dortmund. A great-tasting pils to be enjoyed anytime.

  13. Sacha Brown

    It’s the only thing my cousin drinks when l go over to visit in Dortmund. Forgotten how good this is. Very easy drinking & only 200 calories a bottle. Perfect Summer Pilsner

  14. Christine Saunders

    nice smooth easy drinking beer, full of flavour

  15. Al Paton

    A wonderfully crisp, sharp and refreshing example of Pilsner.
    Highly recommended.

  16. Paul Boniface

    Nice understated lager, very clean, light and crisp. A beer for any occasion

  17. Alan Hastings

    This one was again a first for me and boy was I not disappointed fresh, crisp and very refreshing will definitely be purchasing again.

  18. Michael Moore

    Nice refreshing pilsner, good easy drinking.

  19. David Cussell

    Brinkhoffs No1 is an excellent pilsner, I lived in Germany for many years and I am so glad that I have found a place in UK to buy it. Used it at a party and all loved it. Thank you.

  20. Kul

    Not really a fan of most pilsner but this one is great. Pours a beautiful light straw yellow, a fine white head, great body and a taste that is smooth, with a hint of pilsner bitterness but never lingering.
    Aroma is sweet with a hint of grassy maltness. A pilsner that surprised me & one that I will buy again, give it a go.

  21. Kenneth Davies

    Brinkhofs No 1 is a great pilsener from one of the last breweries left in Dortmund and is a favourite of mine and my brother in law. Will certainly be ordering this again

  22. Alex Ginge

    A tasty pilsener. Thought I’d give it a go and pleased I did.

  23. Harry Watson

    Another Dortmund beer I would approve of easy drinking and smooth.

  24. Milan Macurak

    Just an honest German Pils. Very easy to drink with clear and focused taste. Another of mine everyday beer in Rein-Pfalz region.

  25. Mr S

    This was nice, I enjoyed this pils. A solid score of 3.75/5 for this very easy drinker.

  26. WF

    Good German pils, nothing really sets it apart from any of the others but that’s not a criticism.

  27. Barrie Taylor

    A fantastic beer to drink.

  28. Kris

    Very smooth easy drinking pilsner that stands well against its peers in a very high bar market.

  29. Gavin Harrison

    If you went into your local and asked for a pint of lager and were presented with this, it would exceed your expectations. Beautiful crystal clear pale colour and a good head. Slight hoppiness and bitterness on the palate delivers a smooth full flavour.

  30. Jens

    Great Pilsener from Dortmund. Dry, yet smooth, with a long, slightly bitter finish, absolutely brilliant if you like this style of beer.
