Brewery International Introduction

The origins of brewing in the city of Lahnstein date back to the year 1324. This was the period when the city was founded and when the first brews were done, but we donīt know details about people and places.

What we know is the year 1667 when Jakob Fohr, grandfather of the current owners Dr. Rainer Fohr and Dr. Markus Fohr in 9th and 10th generation, got his brewing rights. Since this time these brewing rights were an heritage directly from father to son – and since 2002 there are three more possible brewers growing up in 11th generation.

Even today Lahnsteiner Brewery is a family business with ten employees and a rich production of 40 traditional beers, modern craftbeers and delicious specials like a single malt whisky created from beer wort, beer spirit, beer cheese, beer noodles and many more.

Distribution of Lahnsteiner products can be found by special salespartners in Germany and in the surrounding countries. But apart from this the best way to get to know us is to
