Biermanufaktur Engel dates back to 1738, and has been run by the same family since 1877. The fourth and fifth generations of the Fach family are now managing the brewery, leading it to become one of the most decorated in Germany.
Brewed traditionally, using methods honed over 275 years, Engel beers have been perfected through the centuries. The German Reinheitsgebot (Purity Law) of 1516 requires the use of high-quality water, as well as the best malt and selected hops, making for some exceptional beers.
Beer & Bratwurst
Marketing Director here at The Sausage Man, Jorg Braese, said: “Beer and Bratwurst go together perfectly – there’s really nothing like having a nice cold pint with your sausage. We have noticed that it can be hard to find a great range of German beers in UK shops, without finding a specialist retailer, so it seemed natural for us to expand in this area.
“Engel have a fantastic range of beers, with everything you could want from a single brewer, so they were the natural choice for us. Our focus is always on finding the best German products to bring to the UK market, and Engel fits perfectly with this goal. When I’m in Germany, I always drink Engel beer myself.”
