With a brewery dating back to 1328, Augustiner-Bräu is the oldest brewer in Munich and the last remaining independent brewer in the historic city.

Classically German, the Augustiner Edelstoff is crisp, refreshing, and the German purity law defined. This world class helles lager is brewed with the best ingredients and is a treat for all beer lovers (including those who “just like lager.”)

The bright gold Augustiner Edelstoff has understated notes of cut grass, herbs, and sweet malts that are balanced by a moderate bitterness. Its light body and delicate carbonation lead to a smooth mouthfeel that still finds a way of being crisp and lingering with a fantastically clean finish.

Brewery Info

Munich’s oldest independent brewery, Augustiner-Bräu was founded in 1328 within the monastery of the Augustinian Brotherhood. Production has moved over the years as secularisation and privatisation took hold, but the brewery has maintained its sense of place and history.

Still privately-owned, Augustiner-Bräu is an important part of Munich's culture, owning one of the city’s largest beer gardens and hosting a tent at Oktoberfest. Their most popular brew is Augustiner Helles, an incredibly drinkable pale lager, closely followed by Augustiner Edelstoff, a light, crisp and clean lager.

classic german lager

very smooth and tastes a whole lot less artificial than most lagers that are mass produced
From beer gods who do magic

First went to munich in 1979 and been returning ever since average once a year. I have conducted extensive research, at great personal risk i might add, in the various and many beer kellers over the years. In my humble opinion Augustiner keller has the best beer in Munich, if not the world. Edelstoff in draft form in its natural habitat is genius, pure nectar. Its nowhere near as good from the bottle , it doesn’t have that purity and creamy body to it, but its the closest i can get in Scotland and it ensures i keep going back to Munich for more. Even in bottle form it’s a fine refreshing beer. You wont be disappointed. Warning!***Dancing on tables to oompah bands whilst drinking Edelstoff can be hazardous to health.
Stunning !!!

I have been going to Munich on a regular basis since 1979 and have tried all the beers in all the beer kellers of all the major brewers in Munich. After 40 years of “research” my findings are as follows:-Augustiner is the best brewery in the world and Edelstoff is made by beer gods who know magic. A stunning oh so easy to drink beer that first mesmerises then makes you fall in love with it. Sentimentle old fool that i am!!!!!
