The Warsteiner Brewery was founded in 1753, and today is one of the largest privately held breweries in Germany. Its flagship is the Warsteiner brand, one of Germany’s leading premium pilsener brands.
But WARSTEINER is equally successful around the globe: The brand is served in more than 60 countries worldwide. The export business is supported by its own sales organizations abroad as well as through cooperation agreements with international partner breweries. In several countries WARSTEINER is produced under license agreements.
The Warsteiner Brewery is family-owned and has its headquarters in the Sauerland region in the German state of Westphalia. Today, the company is managed by the 9th generation of the Cramer family, Catharina Cramer. Its history of unparalleled rise from a mere regional beer to an international premium brand is rooted in the concepts of tradition and innovation—values which still today define the company as well as the brand.
