The beginnings of Erdinger Weissbräu date back to 1886 the year in which construction of a wheat beer brewery in Erding was first officially recorded. After several changes in ownership the General Manager at the time Franz Brombach bought the brewery in 1935 and re-named it Erdinger Weissbräu on December 27 1949. In 1965 the son of Franz Brombach Werner Brombach entered the business. He took over the private brewery in 1975 and still leads his father's successful business today. Erdinger weissbier stands for wheat beer enjoyment and the Bavarian brewing tradition. The traditional brewery has established itself as the national and international market leader for weissbier. As one of Germany's largest private breweries Erdinger Weissbräu is among the leaders on the national German beer market.
Erdinger has a light orange colour in the glass and like most wheat beer has a real tropical and herby nose. Erdinger has banana, baking bread and yeasty aromas and the palate has a slight spicy edge. Very easy to drink and very distinctive.
Try with a German Currywurst; a bratwurst Sausage, pan fried with curry powder sprinkled over and lots of ketchup. Yummy!
