The “Laughing Buddha” depicted on Lucky Buddha beer is actually not THE Buddha and therefore not religious but cultural. He is incorporated in Buddhist, Taoist and Shinto traditions. The term buddha means “one who is awake”, connoting one who has awakened into enlightenment.

Today, Paulaner is every bit a part of Munich life as it was in 1634. Every year Paulaner is one of only 6 breweries pouring beer at the Oktoberfest in Munich. By using locally sourced ingredients, we not only get the best, but our brewmasters can also be a part of the development process, working with farmers and watching over the progress of the growing season and the success of the harvest.
Fruli is a high quality Strawberry Belgian fruit beer, produced at a craft brewery in Melle near Ghent in Belgium. It is a unique blend of white beer and strawberry juice.

Chiswick Bitter, London Pride, & ESB Of course, those three famous ales are still right at the heart of the brewery today. That’s far from the end of the story though, as we continue to invest and to innovate, building on our history and heritage to set new benchmarks for brewing and retailing.
In the early 1990’s the O’Hara family, along with a few other beer-loving entrepreneurs, stepped onto the scene, ready to put Ireland on the map. Ireland’s microbreweries were born again and the wheels were set in motion for the slow but highly successful craft beer evolution.
Hacker Pschorr is truly dedicated to the art of brewing. Since 1417, we have focused our brewery around quality ingredients, artful crafting, and fresh flavors.

Sometimes a beer is just a beer. This isn’t one of those times.

Fresh spring water from Mount Lao is the crowning touch. The result is the perfect brew to enjoy in your kingdom…wherever you happen to be ruling at the moment.
It is called the “model of meter” among beers. While most lagers give away most of their taste profile in the front of the mouth, Pilsner Urquell only hints at its flavour there. Instead, it develops you in the middle, followed by a refreshing, clean finish and balanced aftertaste, practically inviting you to have another. Its unparalleled exceptionality is guaranteed by the same recipe dating from 1842.
