Warsteiner Premium German Pilsener

Premium German Pilsener

Enjoy this world-class international premium pilsener.

Unique: the slightly tart taste experience.

Exceptional: the top quality of the ingredients.

Inimitable: the exquisite premium character.

Pleasantly light: thanks to especially soft brewing water.

Öko-Test”: “First Class”

The “Öko Test” magazine compared 46 beers including known brands distributed throughout Germany and regional brands. The Warsteiner Brewery’s Premium-Pils was rated “First Class” by the Öko-Test jurors as the best beer distributed throughout Germany from a family-run brewery (August 2009).

This outstanding result impressively underscores Warsteiner’s traditional quality attributes.

Quality hops

Our company only purchases and processes quality hops that meet our strict quality requirements. The special combination of bitter and aroma hops is unique and is a key component of the well balanced, mild-hoppy WARSTEINER Premium German Pilsener.

Best brewing barley

The malt for our beer is manufactured from top-quality brewing barley cultivated from well-known German producing regions and from Champagne, which enjoy optimal climatic and soil conditions.
The light golden yellow color of WARSTEINER Premium German Pilsener beer is obtained thanks to none other than the finest ingredients and an especially gentle, careful brewing process.

Extra-soft water

Another top-quality attribute is the original and especially soft brewing water. This is obtained from the Kaiserquelle, among other sources.

Albert Cramer Senior discovered the Kaiserquelle (‘Kaiser’s Spring’) at the edge of the Arnsberg Forest, close to the Waldpark brewery of today. With a water hardness of only one to two degrees, the water is especially suitable for brewing beer and contributes to the beer’s wholesomeness. The Kaiserquelle’s soft water, which still to this day feeds the Warsteiner Brewery’s water tanks, was crucial for the huge success of Warsteiner Pilsener, which was brewed from 1927 following the registration of water rights.
