VISION and Values

We’re out to shape the future of beer and more, capturing consumer hearts with every pour!


We’ve come a long and above all fascinating way from the unraveling of the art of brewing in the medieval age, towards a modern, contemporary brewing operation that follows 21st century standards. Join us on a journey through time, which over the course of hundreds of years wrote chapters of moving stories and brought a multitude of innovations on the way.


We take great pride in our particularly densely stricken network of locations and operations, who’ve decided to become Austria’s beer culture flagship under the umbrella of Brau Union Österreich. Get an overview of our breweries and sales storage locations here.
