Die Freien Brauer stand for
a community of private breweries

vormals KRONEN-Brauhaus

Brauwerk Baden vormals Kronen-Brauhaus Offenburg


The Company was founded in 1847 by Mr. Theodor Braun in Oberkirch/Baden.


After several mergers of smaller breweries nearby, the company traded as Kronenbrauerei with the headquarter in Offenburg in 1928.  


In 1979 was taken over the “Kronenbrauerei Hornberg”, in 1993 the brewery “Wagner-Brauerei Offenburg” as well as the logistics centre “Kempf-Logistik” and in 1997 finally the brewery “Landbierbrauerei Jehle” in Biberach.  


In the beginning of 2017 another big step occurred with the relocation in a new built brewery on the outskirts of the city in the Gutenbergstraße 3, Offenburg.


In this step the Kronenbrauerei Offenburg GmbH and the new company Brauwerk Baden GmbH merged under the name Brauwerk Baden.  


With a most modern technology equipment and a new strategy on market in the new brewery are produced about 30 thl beer and 5 thl non-alcoholic beverages and set off in the area between Karlsruhe and Freiburg.
