About Paulaner Brewery Group

The Schörghuber name has been synonymous with construction and beer brewing since 1979. That was the year that Josef Schörghuber acquired a majority shareholding in the Hacker Pschorr and Paulaner-Salvator-Thomasbräu breweries and a 50-percent stake in Kulmbacher Reichelbräu. With a total of ten breweries today, the Beverages business division places emphasis on diversity and the regional art of beer brewing. 

The Group is managed by the Paulaner Brewery Group, a joint venture between the Schörghuber Corporate Group (70 percent) and Heineken (30 percent). Paulaner Brewery Group is the largest brewery group in southern Germany.

Facts & Figures

Regional brands, a presence in over 80 markets worldwide, about 3,000 years of beer brewing tradition of all its breweries combined and promoting sports and cultural events in their respective regions are the hallmarks of the largest brewery group in southern Germany.

Discovering diversity

The Beverages division, which is managed by the Paulaner Brewery Group, stands for regional diversity. The brands belonging to the division's ten breweries include Paulaner, Hacker-Pschorr, Kulmbacher, Mönchshof, Fürstenberg, Hoepfner and Schmucker with a large number of specialty beers.

The art of brewing

Brewing beer is an art form that inspires passion and pride in the breweries' employees, who pass it on – not only to their vocational trainees but also to all those who share this passion, for example during Mönchshof's BrauMeisterei on Tour.

International  success

With its brands, the breweries in the group score regionally, nationally and internationally. Paulaner, which not only exports its beer with great success but also communicates the Bavarian attitude to life with its restaurants that boast their own microbreweries, is especially popular.

Appreciation for tradition

Together, the breweries look back on several thousands of years of brewing tradition. This considerable length of time serves to engender close ties: with the location, the region and with local tradition. Maintaining and cultivating these ties are a matter of honor for the breweries.

A time to celebrate

To the breweries, involvement in the region means not only supporting tradition but also local sports and cultural activities as a sponsor and organizer of special events and festivals. One example is Fürstenberg's Lokal Derby, a music contest that promotes artists from all over Baden-Württemberg.
