The History of BECK’S

HOW IT ALL BEGAN – FROM 1873 TO TODAY



  • 1873

    FOUNDATION OF KAISER-BRAUEREI BECK & MAY O.H.G

    Kaiser-Brauerei Beck & May o.H.G. was founded by master brewer Lüder Rutenberg from Bremen, master brewer Heinrich Beck and merchant F. G. Thomas May on 27 June.

  • 1874

    IMPERIAL HONOURS

    From the very beginning, the Kaiserbrauerei, or “Imperial Brewery”, bottled its beer in green long-neck bottles. This set the Kaiserbier apart from other beers, which were only sold in brown bottles. At the international agricultural fair in Bremen, the company was awarded a gold medal by the later Emperor Friedrich III. This still adorns the label today.

  • 1875

    FRESH COMBINATION

    The master brewer and partner of the Bremen-based Kaiserbrauerei founded in 1873, Heinrich Beck, created a smooth pilsner beer that retained its fresh taste even when transported over long distances. The beer was already shipped to the Dutch East Indies, now Indonesia, in its first year.

  • 1876

    AND THE WINNER IS...

    At the World’s Fair in Philadelphia, Kaiserbier beat competitors from Holland, Denmark and Ireland to the title of best European beer. The BECK’S label still features a reminder of this today.

  • 1886

    NO PASSAGE WITHOUT KAISERBIER

    The Kaiserbrauerei exclusively supplied all the ships of Norddeutscher Lloyd. These carried the name of the beer all around the world. It was soon in demand in port cities across the globe.

  • 1888

    ALWAYS ICE COLD, ALWAYS FRESH

    A Linde ice machine meant that the brewery was no longer dependent on natural ice supplies. Brewing could now continue even in particularly hot summers.

  • 1921

    REVOLUTION ON THE LABEL

    The company signed a contract with C. H. Haake AG. At the same time, Kaiserbrauerei renamed itself Exportbrauerei Beck & Co. From now on, they only produced beer for export. The Beck & Co. lettering took centre stage on the label.

  • 1928

    BARREL-FRESH INNOVATION

    Beck & Co. developed steel barrels to replace the pitch-lined wooden barrels. This meant that owners of beverage establishments received draught beer of the freshest quality and pure pilsner taste.

  • 1931

    THE STEP TO BECOMING AN INTERNATIONAL BREWER

    Breweries in Batavia and Singapore started production under licence: Beck & Co. moved even closer to the traditionally important markets in the Far East. Corporate investments – for example in Colombia – also contributed to international growth.

  • 1948

    NEW BEGINNING

    Having come to a complete standstill during the Second World War, production restarted hesitantly when the war was over. In Bremen, the first boxes were delivered to Thailand as early as 1948. In 1949, BECK’S was sold in its home market for the first time to reduce exposure to the uncertainties of international markets.

  • 1953

    DELICIOUS BEERS FOR ON THE GO

    Following the trend from the USA, BECK’S offered its pilsner in cans for the first time.

  • 1955

    BECK’S BEER QUENCHES MEN’S THIRST

    The first nationwide advertisements were placed in the news magazine “Der Spiegel”. The new slogan was: “BECK’S Bier löscht Männerdurst” (BECK’S Beer Quenches Men’s Thirst).

  • 1968

    BECK’S SIX-PACK

    The six-pack with 0.33 l bottles was launched as a compact alternative to the large crate.

  • 1984

    SETTING SAIL

    One of the most successful advertising campaigns was launched. To this day, the sailing boat “Alexander von Humboldt” and the song “Sail Away” are part of the BECK’S identity.

  • 1993

    FRESH, FREE AND POPULAR

    Thanks to the innovative combination of a special mixing process and gentle vacuum distillation, the fresh pilsner taste also came through without alcohol. German retailers rated BECK’S Alkoholfrei the most successful new launch of the year.

  • 2002

    MILD GOLD

    The new BECK’S Gold quickly gained popularity with its mild taste. BECK’S Gold was the most successful new product launch in the history of the German beer market and established the first clear glass bottle for beer with UV protection.

  • 2005

    BECK'S GREEN LEMON

    A new market was discovered for beer mixed drinks, which are loved by consumers. BECK’S Green Lemon offered a deliciously crisp, refreshing, limey taste with just 2.5% alcohol.

  • 2008

    BECK'S ICE

    BECK’S Ice created a completely new taste experience and an extraordinary transparent look. The new beer mixed drink with the fruity, refreshing taste of lime and mint was produced using an innovative filtration technique. This process filters out the beer colouring while retaining the typical BECK’S taste.

  • 2012

    FOLLOW YOUR INNER COMPASS

    The new campaign “Folge Deinem Inneren Kompass” (Follow Your Inner Compass) encouraged independent thinking. Highlights include the unique BECK’S Art Labels 2012: five musicians let their creativity run wild and designed their own labels.

  • 2017

    LEGENDARY

    BECK’S kicked off a legendary summer in 2017 with the new “Legendary” campaign: lead the way, take life in your hands and show the world what you’re made of. You are what make it legendary.

  • 2018

    GREEN LABELS

    In 2018, BECK’S dispensed with its best-known brand feature: the bottle label. Under the motto “Mach’s zu deinem BECK’S” (Make it Your BECK’S), the whole of Germany was called upon to get creative and create new, individual labels with their own designs, texts and pictures. The result was more than 27,000 creative ideas from which 40 winners were chosen.

  • 2019

    BECK’S LEMON BREW

    The first “Naturradler” (natural shandy) with naturally brewed lemonade. 50% BECK’S with 50% brewed lemonade and 100% natural taste: less sweet with fermented notes. With BECK’S Lemon Brew, BECK’S fundamentally redefined the natural shandy segment!

  • 2021

    BECK’S UNFILTERED

    Another new launch followed in February 2021: BECK’S Unfiltered. Inspired by the original brewing process dating back to 1873, BECK’S Unfiltered is a BECK’S in its most original and natural form. The result is a naturally cloudy pilsner with a smooth, refreshing taste.
