Anheuser-Busch InBev Deutschland GmbH & Co KG: Bringing beer to the world – Beck’s Pils – Fresh. Pure. Authentic.

In 1873, Bremen-based master brewer Lüder Rutenberg and the master brewer Heinrich Beck joined with businessman Thomas May to found the “Kaiserbrauerei Beck & May o.H.G”. Today, the Beck’s brand is part of the portfolio of the world’s largest brewing group, Anheuser-Busch InBev, which has its German headquarters in Bremen. In addition to the international Beck’s brand, the popular Haake-Beck beer is also a fix­­ture in the product range. Almost 1,400 employees work at the 141,700 sqm brew­­ing facility in Bremen’s Neustadt quarter. The plant is Germany’s largest export brew­­ery, offering a broad and varied product range. In addition to the original Beck’s Pils, it also includes Beck’s Blue – an alcohol-free ver­­sion of the classic Beck’s brew – as well as innovative drinks such as Beck’s Gold, Beck’s Green Lemon and Beck’s Ice. The brand is also popular in other countries. Eve­­ry fourth German beer consumed abroad is a Beck’s. Beck’s is available in over 120 countries on five continents. In fact, 3,000 bottles of the high quality Ger­­man beer are drunk every minute worldwide.

For the fifth year in succession, the Beck’s brand is the leader among the nation’s strong­­­est beer brands as determined in the recent study “Markenmonitor Bier”. Accord­­­ing to the study, Beck’s is the strong­­­­est brand in German brewing with top ratings when it comes to image, brand and quality perception as well as personal preference.
