3rd largest brewery in Germany. Nestled in the Sauerland region. Founded in 1824. Over 180 years later, it had evolved into one of the most modern private breweries in Europe, which is still owned by the family Veltins. Greveinsteiner was the first beer the brewery made in 1824 and unfiltered kellerbier known as a country beer.
In 1840 Cleo Veltins traveled to Milwaukee, WI for 6 years learning how brew beer. Returning in 1846 he created Veltins Pilsner using the freshest hops, softest spring water and the best summer barely.

An excellent beer for all occasions. VELTINS is synonymous with fresh- ness, for a good reason: By enacting the beer purity law in 1516, German brewers created the basis for a tradition of excellence, individually and expertly refined by the C. & A. Brewery during the many decades that followed. This is another reason why VELTINS today ranks among the most popular German Pilsner-type beers: as it has for hundreds of years, the pure brewing water still springs from the natural mountain sources located around Grevenstein, an area which has for some time enjoyed protection as a natural reserve. Since its beginning, the VELTINS brewers have used nothing but pure malt, delicate hops and vigorous yeast. Today, the original VELTINS formula represents a technologically sophisticated brewing process resulting in consistent taste and quality. Day after day, our brewers deliver proof that tradition and high-tech are in no way mutually exclusive. Fresh VELTINS is perfect evidence of good taste.
Back to the roots: The brewery C. & A. Veltins revives its venerable knowledge in the craft of beer brewing with its new beer brand Grevensteiner Original – Inspired by the traditional brewing of the twins Carl and Anton Veltins during the beginning of the last century. The beer shines palely amber coloured with orange reflections from inside the mug with the family brewerys’ more than 100 year old lettering style as an ornament. The brewery C. & A. Veltins has been associated with the historical and bulbous Steinie bottle for decades. That is why the traditional Steinie bottle, the historically appearing label, as well as the sealing on the crown cork brings the history and long tradition to life in a modern product.
