The beer that co-founded the Pilsner brewing method in Germany, which impressed chancellors and kings, and which – to this day – remains highly prized in the cities of the world, is celebrating its 150th Anniversary.
It was in January 1872 when five influential local men from Radeberg, near Dresden, met in a wine tavern – of all places – for a morning drink. And what was their topic of conversation? The foundation of a beer brewery. The founders were not fazed by their lack of brewing experience. This was ultimately because they had courage and an idea to drive forward – they wanted to brew the best beer of their day using the Pilsner brewing method. They thus founded one of the most advanced breweries and laid the foundation stone for it on April 23rd, 1872.
In time, the excellent reputation of the Pilsner from Radeberg spread rapidly across the whole of Germany. By the end of the 19th century, the beer had already conquered the city of New York in the USA, from where it spread to almost every corner of the world. The Pilsner has survived world wars, financial crises and social changes and to this day, as in the beginning, it remains true to its promise to be one of the best beers brewed according to the Pilsner method. Today, Radeberger Pilsner remains a well-loved beer throughout the world and is exported to over 40 countries.
Thanks to its establishment “since 1872”, Radeberger Pilsner can now look back at a successful 150-year history. To pay a fitting tribute to this birthday celebration, we have devised something special for you: a beer can in a Limited Edition Design. This will make toasting the 150th anniversary with a cool Radeberger Pilsner feel especially good. Cheers!
