A taste of tradition

The city of Dargun is placed in the heart of the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern region in the Northeastern part of Germany.

Back in 1172, Danish monks settled in the city of Dargun and started brewing beer. To honor these roots, 29th of May 1991, on a green meadow, Darguner Brauerei GmbH was established in the same city.

Darguner beers are all based on the best raw materials. The crystal clear fresh water used comes from deep wells of Mecklenburg origin and offers the right basis for all our Darguner beers.

 

More than 800 years of brewing history

Danish monks settled in the city of Dargun in 1172 and laid the foundation for the premium beer today known as Darguner

Our brewmaster, with Bavarian roots, Christian Weindl, is educated at the prestigious Staatliches Hofbräu in Munich. With dedication and passion he turns the Darguner beer into a truly authentic German experience.

Premium beers from the heart of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

Darguner beers are all based on the best raw materials

Strong German Heritage

Nestled in the heart of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the city of Dargun is placed in the Northeastern part of Germany.

Unlike many other countries and regions, the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern area has a huge variety of natural wells and water sources – in fact it is called, the land of thousand lakes. That is why the water we use for brewing has a carefully selected taste of its own and contributes to the unique character of each beer.

One of the most famous monuments is the monastery’s brewery from 1172. The monastery was founded by Danish monks, who settled in the city of Dargun and began brewing beer with the use of the local ingredients.

The art of brewing

Maybe you haven’t heard of the Purity Law from 1516. Actually, Darguner beers are brewed in accordance to this law which ensures that no other ingredients than barley, hops, water and eventually yeast and wheat are used in the beer brewing process.

The Reinheitsgebot was proclaimed by William the IV, Duke of Bavaria, in 1516. The reason was first and foremost the health of the German nation to preserve the necessary ingredients to bake enough bread, the Duke imposed restrictions on the usage of wheat and rye only to be used for bread.

It may seem like an outdated law but we like to hold on to the authentic traditions in maintaining the right taste of Darguner.

Award winning brewery
