Project Description

The German Purity Law is only eighteen years old when Duke Georg of Saxony, the bearded one, certifies the ownership and usage rights for the “forwerck crostewitz” near Leipzig to one of his faithful by a letter of tenure. This document of 11 May 1534 also includes the brewing right for the liege lord – and thus marks the beginning of Krostitz’s long brewing history. The fact that not only an own stove, but also an own well can be worth its weight in gold is shown in the quality and popularity of the brewed beers. As early as 1536, the first brewery was built on the “Rittergütlein”. This long brewing tradition stands for competence and taste – and is regarded by beer lovers as a promise of quality.
