One of the top selling brews from the ex-GDR and the pride of Sachsen-Anhalt state.

The brewery was founded in 1872 in the Wernigerode district of Hasserode. By 1896, the production was some 25,000 hectoliters, which was decent for it's time.

By reunification, it was the top seller in the east, and recently production is up to 2.5 million hectoliers annually, ranking it among the top five sellers in all of Germany.
