History

In the year 1952, Rudolf August Oetker acquired the Binding Brauerei AG in Frankfurt – the nerve center of today’s Radeberger Gruppe. This traditional Frankfurt brewery has undergone numerous business acquisitions and participations and internal growth through strong brands to become Germany’s largest brewery group. In keeping with this tradition, the group is still headquartered in Frankfurt.

While the Radeberger Gruppe is an extremely young company, our regional breweries can look back on diversified, often centuries-old brewing histories. This long and successful tradition is something this brewing group feels unequivocally bound by to this day. An exceptional number of impulses, ideas and traditions within the German beer market - from new barrel designs and beer varieties to unusual distribution channels, creative marketing ideas, and concerted quality endeavors - originated at one of the Radeberger Gruppe’s companies. From there, these innovations have marched triumphantly through the entire German - and often, the international - beer market.
