Sold in over 120 countries world-wide, Beck’s is to this day brewed according to Reinheitsgebot – the German Purity Law - and states that only 4 natural ingredients can be used in its brewing; barley, hops, yeast and water.
First brewed in Bremen, Northwest Germany in 1874, Beck’s is to this day brewed according to the German Purity Laws which date back to 1516. Within one year of its launch, Beck’s received its first domestic award from Crown Prince Frederick and its first international prize in the USA in 1876. These medals, together with the “key” representing the city of Bremen, still appear on the Beck’s label today.
Best served extremely cold, Beck’s is full of character and instantly recognisable by its pure, crisp and fresh taste, with a slightly bitter aroma.
Beck’s is often enjoyed foods that have more subtle flavours like fish and chicken dishes. It also a perfect balance for strong tastes – aged cheddar and meats. For a good contrast try a Beck's with spicy foods or a hot curry.
