About Eibauer Brewing
Good things come to those who wait . . . this proverb proved true in 1810 when a brewing license was assigned to the Eibau Country Brewery. Originally, beer was a nutritious ingredient of a soup and Eibauer Schwarzbier (dark beer) - a full-bodied, highly digestible beer - dates back to that time. As legend has it, a Zittau monk, who had to brew the beer, indulged in that culinary delight and whiled away his time in the malt house. What is more, his mouth-to-mouth advertising made the beer well-known in the area and since then Eibauer Schwarzbier has been one of the oldest and most popular dark beers in Germany. The brewery now is very modern enterprise, spoiling customer palates with the finest beers. Please visit www.eibauer.de.
