Eggenberger International was created in 1992 with the vision to sell specialties of Castle Brewery Eggenberg around the world.
After personal conversations with connoisseurs from around the world the idea was born: to bring the best creations of Austrian specialty beers to the international markets. Today our brews are sold in 45 countries around the globe.
Castle Eggenberg in Vorchdorf, Upper Austria had local brewing rights dating back to the 14th century. Sales of the distinguished brews beyond the walls of the Castle began in 1681, when the nobleman owners sold the castle to a common merchant.
Today’s owners, the Stöhr family, acquired the brewery in 1803 and have been guardians of the brewing traditions of Castle Eggenberg for 8 generations over the last 210 years.
Special beers from the Salzkammergut region Castle brewery Eggenberg is the birthplace of numerous premium and craft beers, representing the best of the Austrian and international beer scene.
Particular attention is paid to the origin and quality of the raw materials.
The shooting star of the Austrian beer scene was founded in 2007 in a former bell foundry after which it was named. The young brewery has won numerous awards around Europe with its outstanding creations.
