A short History
Oettinger derives its name from a small town named Oettingen, found in the region of Bavaria. The town itself dates back to 1141 when it was first mentioned as belonging to the principality of Oettingen. The exceptional success and the increasing global development of the Oettinger Brewing Group is based on its strong German brewing tradition dating back to 1731 when it was founded. In 1956, the Kollmar family purchased the widely recognized cooperative brewery of Oettingen and developed it to one of the leading German brewing groups. The Oettinger Brewing Group is one of the largest brewing groups in Germany in terms of its production volume. The exceptional success of Oettinger derives from a strong family-owned tradition. The Group is deeply rooted in the famous German brewing tradition and has gained exceptional reputation for its cost-effectiveness in producing top-quality products for international markets. In 2012, the entire Group had a production volume in Germany of over 10 million hectolitres (hl). Oettinger beer is sold in more than 100 countries.
