Castle Eggenberg is the oldest family owned brewery in Austria. It dates back at least to the year 999 A.D. At this time the beer was brewed only for the inhabitants of the surrounding villages. Since 1681 the Castle Brewery Eggenberg has been brewing on a commercial basis.
The Schloss Eggenberg Hopfenkönig is the pinnacle beer of the brewery and is a delicately herbal pilsner slowly matured in the castle cellars, and highly fermented which radiates a lightly golden gloss.
It is brewed exclusively with natural raw ingredients after the purity requirement of 1516.
