Today, VELTINS is one of Germany’s most important premium beer brands. But, nothing comes from nothing – it is the fresh taste that hits the spot. The special brewing technique, which is indispensable for this type of beer, was developed in the Bohemian town of Pilsen, more than 150 years ago. A Pilsner-type beer is a pale brew with pleasant, hoppy bitterness. Original gravity is 11% minimum, making it a so-called „Vollbier“, or standard beer. It was Carl Veltins himself, who in 1926 made the decision to solely rely on the Pilsner brewing technique. Since then, connoisseurs the world over have come to appreciate a freshly tapped VELTINS.
