“Our socials earlier this year across the UK proved a massive hit in meeting up with our longstanding customers and driving new business so we’re excited to announce this latest event in conjunction with our friends at Page & Sons. We’re incredibly passionate about the On-trade and with the challenges in the market, these face-to-face events are a crucial part of our customer service and support.

Krombacher Brewery

Fiercely independent and family-run, Krombacher has been producing its much-revered beers in harmony with nature in the Krombach Valley since 1803.

Brewing exclusively in the small town of Krombach, nestled in the beautiful Siegerland Hills of Westfalia, central Germany, Krombacher proudly adheres to the German Beer Purity Law of 1516 (Reinheitsgebot).

Relying on artistry, experience and above all a passion for purity, Krombacher’s Master Brewers ensure no corners are cut in their pursuit of perfection.

Combining traditional brewing methods with state-of-the art technology, the brewery only uses the finest, 100% natural ingredients. This includes the finest two-row summer barley, Siegel hops from Hallertau and the brewery’s very own specially cultivated Krombacher Pilsner Superioris yeast, which is used in one brew only.

For the precious water, Krombacher beers benefit from the local Felsquellwasser® found in 50 wells within 3km of the brewery. The special water is naturally soft, low in mineral content and is the only water ever used to brew Krombacher beer, providing the beer with its unique, recognisably refreshing, pure and crisp taste.

The market leader in Germany and among the most modern beverage suppliers in Europe, Krombacher beers are now available in more than 50 markets worldwide.  

In the UK, the brand has over 300 draught taps now in operation in the On-trade and the beers are widely available in the Off-trade from the likes of Tesco, Morrisons, Majestic, Co-op, Ocado, Booths, Bargain Booze, Filshill Keystore, Oddbins, Spar (north of England).

The Krombacher beers available in the UK include the Pils, Hell, Unfiltered, Weizen, Dark, 0.0% Pils and Non-Alcoholic Weizen.
