Welcome to ERDINGER Weißbräu
For over 130 years, the outstanding quality of our wheat beers has been rooted in our passion for Bavarian brewing skills. As a private brewery, we stand for:
Our roots are in Bavaria. We have been brewing exclusively in Erding since 1886 – every single bottle. And we have never brewed anything other than the Bavarian specialty “weissbier”.
Quality & Flavor
The most important thing for us. As a traditional brewery, we make no compromises when it comes to the German Purity Law, our top-class ingredients and our passion for Bavaria’s cultural heritage in the form of “weissbier”.
Lifestyle & Enjoyment
Our wheat beer specialties personify Bavarian lifestyle and enjoyment. In over 90 countries! We are delighted to be ambassadors of Bavarian hospitality.
ERDINGER is respectful and responsible in its dealings with employees, customers, the environment and society. As an owner-managed private brewery, continuity and reliability are the basis for our business.
Over the past decades, the brewery has been shaped by a multitude of major – and minor – events. Here’s an overview of some of the most important milestones.
With an output of approx. 1.8 million hl (2018) and exports to over 90 countries, ERDINGER is Germany’s largest family-owned wheat beer brewery. For over 130 years, ERDINGER Weissbräu has stood for carefully nurtured Bavarian wheat beer culture and perfect enjoyment.
The new bottling plant goes into operation. Two new bottling lines and the modernization of an existing line create additional capacity: up to 165,000 bottles can be filled per hour.

A new brewhouse is constructed on the edge of town – there is no longer enough space at the company’s historic base in the middle of the Old Town. Capacity is now almost 600,000 hl, but a second building is soon needed to expand capacity further.
Following the death of his father, Werner Brombach takes over the family business. Two years later, output reaches around 225,000 hl and ERDINGER is market leader.
Austria and Italy became ERDINGER’s first wheat beer export nations. Today, the mid-size private brewery exports its specialties to five continents.
Launch of the successful advertising campaign for the ERDINGER Weissbier brand, focusing on its "high quality standards" as a "traditional Bavarian specialty". The new ERDINGER jingle "Des Erdinger Weissbier, des is hoid a Pracht..." becomes a German advertising classic.
Wheat beer can now also be bought north of the “white sausage equator”! Werner Brombach is the first brewer to distribute his ERDINGER Weissbier outside the borders of Bavaria – first in Baden-Württemberg, then in North Rhine-Westphalia and then further to the north.
The company is racing ahead: annual production rises to around 40,000 hl. The brewery’s current owner, Werner Brombach, joins the company. His declared intention is to gradually establish and successfully market a nationwide wheat beer brand.
Franz Brombach names the brewery ERDINGER Weißbräu.
