The history of our beer brewing is tied to the Pécsi karst water (crystal-clear karst spring water) that is traced back to the city’s Franciscan monastery, which began operations in 1301. The brewery has been running since Lipót Hirschfeld founded it in the mid-19th century.
The enterprise is owned by Hungarian individuals and operates as a small-scale brewery based on the Council Directive 92/83/EEC since the 2017 ownership change.
Both our traditional and premium brands are brewed according to the German Beer Purity Law.
Active participation in the brewing industry’s ongoing innovations is a key goal for the company, such as the continued reduction of our ecological footprint, to minimise water and energy use.
