Special beers brewed in a traditional manner

Meckatzer Löwenbräu

Highest Allgäu culture of indulgence.

Time for something good – with this claim, special beers have been brewed in Meckatz since 1738, according to the German Purity Law. Meckatzer Weiss Gold is the heart of the family brewery; a recipe patented in 1905 that is passed down from generation to generation.

Michael Weiß, Dipl.-Braumeister


Meckatzer Löwenbräu is more than just an Allgäu brewery - it is an Allgäu history as diverse as the region itself. After the death of Gebhard Weiß, it is only thanks to Lena's courage and responsibility that the brewery continued to exist. Characteristics were passed on from generation to generation. In 1905, Meckatzer Weiss-Gold was the first registered beer brand in the Allgäu.  Currently, Michael Weiß is responsible for the art of brewing as well as people, nature and traditions. In addition to aligning the company with a sustainable values-based approach, he is a leader in establishing a conscious culture of fun and enjoyment in the Allgäu.

This is an independent type of beer. It is brewed in the traditional way in a double mashing process using selected raw materials from controlled-integrated cultivation and aged cold for a full two years.
Meckatzer Hell
The Meckatzer Hell is a type of beer typical of Bavaria and belongs to the family of bottom-fermented lagers. With its subtle hint of hops, it has a delicately spicy character and is therefore particularly tasty.

"Those who live by timeless values will not remain alone for long. They will find their community of like-minded brothers and sisters in spirit."

The Allgäu region – a place and a feeling

The raw materials used are from the region, which are handcrafted and matured over time to Meckatzer maturity. As a result, Meckatzer became the first German brewery to receive the Slow Brewing seal of approval, the most consistent seal on the international beer market.

The only thing that provides direction in times of uncertainty is a timeless philosophy. Loyalty to oneself and to one's homeland. The courage to make a difference in the world, as well as the responsibility to take responsibility for one's own actions.
