Augustiner is a German brewery that has a long heritage in its native country Germany. It’s popular due to its distinctive retro bottle and great flavour. The brewery, Augustiner-Bräu, can be traced as far back as 1328 when it was situated within a monastery just outside the city walls of Munich. Today, Augustiner produces over eight types of beer, of which Beers of Europe stocks seven. The most popular of these beers is Augustiner Helles (5.2%), a pale lager.
This brand has been very popular in the Greater Munich area but in recent years its popularity has spread to Berlin and further afield. The Augustiner brewery is renowned as one of the last major breweries that isn’t owned by an international beer conglomerate, making it one of the more unique producers out there.
Augustiner-Bräu has a dedicated tent at Oktoberfest and also owns one of the largest beer gardens in Europe, Augustiner-Keller . The brewery’s beers are often referred to as the high class product of an ancient Bavarian brewing art.
