Die Freien Brauer stand for
a community of private breweries

Privatbrauerei Ernst Barre


Successful by means of quality and achievement!

The well-established brewery "Privatbrauerei Ernst Barre" has been owned by Barre family since 1842. The brewery is situated in Lübbecke, a Westphalian town near the so called "Wiehengebirge" (mountains).  The brewery-owned sources rising here provide the crystal-clear spring water which is exclusively used as brewing liquor. This spring water makes the beers of this medium-sized private brewery fresh and highly digestible.


Top-fermented and bottom-fermented beers with following brand names: "Barre Pilsener", "Barre Alkoholfrei", "Barre Dunkel", "Barre Alt", "Barre Weizen", "Barre Maibock" and "Barre Festbier" as well as beer mixers with brand names: "Barre Alster", "Barre Natur Alster", "Barre Alt Schuss", "Barre Lemon", "Barre Weizen Grape" and malt beer "Vitamalz". And since 2011 the non-alcoholic refreshment "Barre Fassbrause" in the flavors lemon and elderflower.

Despite a slump in per capita consumption and an increase of competition on the German market, "Privatbrauerei Barre" has been able to sustain its position within the last years.
The annual output of beer currently amounts to about 140,000 hectolitres.
