Die Freien Brauer stand for
a community of private breweries

Glaabsbräu GmbH & Co. KG



South Hesse's oldest brewery and at the same time one of Germany's most modern - that's Glaabsbraeu!

Glaabsbraeu has been a part of German brewing tradition for more than 270 years, always demanding the highest standards, and aiming to brew beers of the best quality and taste.

Ninth generation of the Glaab family, Robert Glaab, continues their philosophy of brewing and ingredients' excellence.

In 2015 and 2017 Glaabsbraeu set important strategic milestones. In 2015 a new brewery was established making them one of the most modern equipped breweries in Germany – alongside this, the brewers' craftsmanship and passion for detail lays the foundation to brew beers of the highest standards.


With the launch of a modern brand image in April 2017 and a broad variety of beers from well established classics to new creations, Glaabsbraeu began a new era.

Glaab's Tropic Thunder and Glaab's Reifepruefung are just two strong characters out of Glaabsbraeu's innovative craft beer range.

Being full of passion and creative ideas, Frankfurt/Rhein-Main's only private brewery Glaabsbraeu, will continue brewing high quality beers that inspire.

You can also experience Glaabsbraeu first hand by joining their guided brewery tour and an unforgettable beer tasting!
