The Erzquell Brewery

The Erzquell Brewery

The only brewery in the Bergisch region is the Erzquell brewery in Wiehl-Bielstein. It is one of only two breweries outside of Cologne where Kölsch beer is brewed.

EXPERIENCE THE BREWERY

Are you interested in a viewing? You can visit the modern Erzquell brewery and experience how the different beers are brewed first hand. Well-informed staff accompany you through all the stages of production. And at the end, you have plenty of opportunity to sample the speciality beers over snacks in the brewery lounge.
  
The tours take place on Wednesday and Thursday evening from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm and are in German. The price is €10.00 per person and includes the guided tour of the facility as well as snacks and sampling of as many of the speciality beers and alcohol-free products made by Erzquell as you like. Payment in advance. The tours run from a minimum of 15 participants, otherwise the brewery reserves the right to cancel.
Upon request, a tour can also be organised in English for groups.

Beer connoisseur seminar with a “beer connoisseur diploma”
During your evening tour, as a group you can get to know even more about the beer and how it is made! A brew master gives you an exclusive, entertaining, exciting and informative 1.5 hour tour through the history of beer, introduces you to the secrets of the art of brewing and gives you practical tips on how to handle beer. At the end, all participants receive the official “beer connoisseur diploma” and of course enjoy a few snacks and sample some beer at the cosy Erzquell brewery’s lounge.

Book the beer connoisseur seminar as a group in addition to the tour for the price of €50.00 (minimum 8, maximum 20 participants) per evening. If you book the brewery tour and beer connoisseur seminar, the tour begins a little earlier at 6 pm.
