The Reinheitsgebot – a beer brewing philosophy whereby only malted barley, hops and water may be used as ingredients, was introduced five centuries ago, to protect consumers from beer that often contained additives. Interestingly, it was also introduced in part to prevent price competition with bakers for wheat and rye. The restriction of grains to barley ensured the availability of affordable bread, as wheat and rye were reserved for use by bakers.
We uphold the brewing tradition established in 1516 and brew according to the Reinheitsgebot. We believe that this is only way to brew a pure beer. It is not an easy task, but SBC chooses this brewing method to ensure consistent quality.
It is the combination of excellent quality raw materials and craftsmanship of our German-trained master brewers that provides the guarantee that you get the best beer possible.
