Warsteiner Dunkel, an exceptionally smooth, dark, German Dunkel.
Thanks to only the best ingredients this dark refreshes like a true lager beer. It has a rich smooth taste and a lingering slightly sweet aftertaste. The delicate aroma and extraordinary coloration result from a careful barley malt roasting process.
Our company only purchases and processes quality hops that meet our strict quality requirements. The special combination of bitter and aroma hops is unique and is a key component of the well balanced, mild-hoppy WARSTEINER Dunkel.
The roasted malt for our beer is manufactured from top-quality brewing barley cultivated from well-known German producing regions and from Champagne, which enjoy optimal climatic and soil conditions.
The dark, amber color of WARSTEINER Dunkel beer is obtained thanks to none other than the finest ingredients and an especially gentle, careful brewing process.
Another top-quality attribute is the original and especially soft brewing water. This is obtained from the Kaiserquelle, among other sources. Albert Cramer Senior discovered the Kaiserquelle (‘Kaiser’s Spring’) at the edge of the Arnsberg Forest, close to the Waldpark brewery of today. With a water hardness of only one to two degrees, the water is especially suitable for brewing beer and contributes to the beer’s wholesomeness. The Kaiserquelle’s soft water, which still to this day feeds the Warsteiner Brewery’s water tanks, was crucial for the huge success of Warsteiner Pilsener, which was brewed from 1927 following the registration of water rights.
The Warsteiner Brewery was founded in 1753, and today is one of the largest privately held breweries in Germany. Its flagship is the Warsteiner brand, one of Germany’s leading premium pilsener brands.
But WARSTEINER is equally successful around the globe: The brand is served in more than 60 countries worldwide. The export business is supported by its own sales organizations abroad as well as through cooperation agreements with international partner breweries. In several countries WARSTEINER is produced under license agreements.
The Warsteiner Brewery is family-owned and has its headquarters in the Sauerland region in the German state of Westphalia. Today, the company is managed by the 9th generation of the Cramer family, Catharina Cramer. Its history of unparalleled rise from a mere regional beer to an international premium brand is rooted in the concepts of tradition and innovation—values which still today define the company as well as the brand.
