Germany is famous for…? Yes, beer!


Radeberger Pilsner – THE CULTURE OF TASTE

Sometimes it’s the small town heroes who catch the world off guard and surprise us when we least expect it. That’s what happened in 1872 when five local men of distinction from the small town of Radeberg not far from Dresden decided to teach us all a thing or two about beer. Unhappy with the taste of the beers of their time, they set out to create something better. Their desire laid the foundation of Radeberger Pilsner, the inventor of the famous German Pilsner Culture. To this day, every single drop of Radeberger Pilsner savored anywhere on earth is brewed exclusively in our home town of Radeberg, Germany. It has always been this way, since the very first batch was brewed
