» About the Brewery

Commitment to tradition with a new attitude

There is a long history to tell within the walls of the Heidelberg Culture Brewery. The first official citing of the former “wirtschaftshof”, which supplied the castle with necessary goods, dates back to 1235. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the Schaaf family brewed their beer here for several generations. Today, this same location where the malt was once brewed for “Zum Seppl” and other taverns in the city is now one of the most popular meeting places in Heidelberg – for locals as well as guests from all over the world.

We have completely rebuilt the brewhouse, which is fully equipped with state-of-the-art brewing technology and separate fermenting and storage cellars. We brew our beers from the finest ingredients and give them the time that they need to age. What’s special about our brews is that they are neither pasteurized nor filtered, which creates their one-of-a-kind, natural, fresh taste. Stop by and see for yourself!
