Frankfurt (Oder), 04.04.2023:
Frankfurter Brauhaus GmbH successfully participated in the International Quality Test for Beer and Beer Mixed Drinks of the German Agricultural Society (DLG). The company was awarded 20 gold medals for the quality of its products. These include the Frankfurt varieties Pilsener, Hell, Hefeweizen and Radler as well as other products of the brewery.
As part of its quality testing, the DLG examines the quality of around 800 beers and beer-mixed drinks every year. The focus of the voluntary tests is on extensive analyses. In addition to laboratory values, sensory characteristics are also evaluated, such as smell, purity of taste, quality of bitterness, full-bodiedness and foam and taste quality during the storage period. This is done in blind tastings.
„Companies that voluntarily subject their products to an external quality assessment by the DLG show not only an exemplary quality orientation but also a desire to constantly improve their products,“ underlines Thomas Burkhardt from the DLG. According to its own information, the DLG test center is a leader in the quality assessment of food. A neutral network of experts as well as testing methods according to current standards are supposed to guarantee neutrality and transparency.
The joy over the renewed award was great in the Frankfurt brewery. “This is a confirmation of the work we have done and shows that beer is brewed here with passion,” says managing director Mike Gärtner.

About Frankfurter Brauhaus GmbH:
Beer has been brewed in Frankfurt (Oder) for over 600 years. Carthusian monks developed and refined the art of fermenting beer from water, malt and hops since 1396. Before the Second World War, some 27 municipal breweries were still known as small and medium-sized enterprises, but the city’s brewing history was initially interrupted for several decades in 1945 with the destruction and dismantling of the Frankfurter Ostquell-Brauerei AG. Finally, in 1988, the Oderland Brewery was opened on the site of today’s Frankfurter Brauhaus. Since then, experienced brewers have carefully and patiently watched over compliance with the respective recipes in accordance with the German Purity Law in keeping with the old tradition and, together with the total of over 165 employees at the site, have ensured that the Frankfurter Brauhaus has today developed into one of the most modern and largest breweries in Germany with a capacity of around 3 million hectolitres. The regional brands brewed in Frankfurt (Oder) today give the brewing location Frankfurt (Oder) its own identity. The combination of traditional brewing skills and state-of-the-art technology are the cornerstones of today’s success. As a major employer in the region, the company continuously focuses on training young people, for example to become highly qualified brewers, mechatronics engineers or locksmiths. Another important building block of success is Frankfurter Brauhaus’ function as an open, independent contract brewery. The company brews and fills beer of the highest quality in glass and PET bottles as well as in kegs and cans for the own brands of other market participants.
