Paulaner: Purity in Brewing


A German brewer is only permitted to use four ingredients – no more. According to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516, these are hops, malt, water and now yeast. The Paulaner master brewers only use the region’s best ingredients. The hops approved for Paulaner come from the Hallertau region of Bavaria, the yeast from its own pure culture, the precious brewing malt from the region and the purest, softest brewing water from its own two deep wells on the Nockherberg. The higher quality of the ingredients, the better the beer. The Paulaner experts therefore check everything thoroughly using their considerable experience and good noses.
