The famous brand of Bavarian beer, which history goes back over 600 years. In 1397 the brewer Hans Welser was registered in Munich and founded the brewery Welser Prew. In the following years, the brewery changed many owners, in 1622 it acquired the current name "Spaten", from the Spatt dynasty, who ran the brewery from 1622 to 1704. The word spaten ("spatin") from German means "shovel", and the symbol of the brewery is a shovel for malt. Spaten - the brewery, officially founded in 1397 in the heart of Munich, is one of the oldest in Germany. The company logo Spaten, developed in 1884, is one of the oldest trademarks in the world. Currently owned by the Spaten-Löwenbräu-Gruppe group of companies.
Like all Bavarian beers, Spaten is brewed in accordance with the 1516 Purity Act. In 1807, Gabriel Sedlmayr, the chief brewer of the Bavarian royal court, acquired the brewery. In 1867 Spaten becomes the largest brewery in Munich. In general, in the 19th century, other companies were equal to the Spaten brewery; Spaten was the first brewery in Munich, which produced Pilsen-type beer and bottom-fermenting beer.
The emblem of the artist Otto Hupp, which captured the famous “shovel” is used from 1884 to these days. Many Germans drink Spaten beer between meals, in order to clean the taste buds. Modern methods for the production of bottom-fermented beer were developed by Gabriel Sedlmayr Junior, who honed his mastery of making brown lagers at Spatin Brewery in the 30s of the XIX century.
In 1992 - Spaten Brewery overcomes 1 million hectoliters production line (26,400,000 gallons).
The fame of the original Munich beer, its taste and quality, is almost legendary. It is a transparent golden color and not too strong. The taste of Spaten Hell is slightly spicy, combining the sweetish taste of a beer wort and some bitterness of a hop. Spaten Hell has, however strange it may sound, a unique, barely catchable floral scent. Needless to say that even ladies are unable to resist, not to try this beer.
Only natural ingredients: water, malt and hops - that's all that the Munich brewery cooks Spaten. No chemistry, only natural ingredients of excellent quality and technology proven over many years. In the production of Spaten, the famous Bavarian “Beer Purity Act” is strictly observed. That is why German beer has an exceptional traditional taste.
