Andreas Boettger is our new Technical Director

Oettingen, den 07. November 2017. Dr. Andreas Boettger is the new Technical Director of Oettinger Brauerei GmbH. The 52-year old has many years of experience in the drinks industry, which he will now specifically bring to the table in the brewing group. Before moving to Oettinger, Andreas Boettger was Managing Director of the Rheinberg Wine Cellar, and prior to that he held senior positions with the Radeberger Group and with Henkell & Co. (Sparking Wine Producers).

“I am very much looking forward to this new challenge and will approach it with plenty of passion and respect. The Oettinger Brewery is a healthy company with a long tradition. I am therefore very optimistic about my new position of responsibility,” explains Dr. Boettger.

As a Director, he is the successor to Karl Liebl who co-managed the company for 18 years as Technical Director.

Producing around 920 million litres, the Oettinger Group is one of Germany’s largest brewing companies. Every year it bottles around 2 billion bottles and cans with beer, beer-mix drinks and soft drinks. The family-owned company, which has been based in the Bavarian town of Oettingen since 1731, now has a workforce of 1,050. Apart from end-to-end quality control, state-of-the-art production facilities at four different sites, two logistics centres and company-wide environmental awareness, the company also endeavours to provide attractive pricing – made possible by efficient direct sales. Oettinger products are sold across the globe. The entire range of beer has also carried the official “GMO-FREE” seal since March 2013 – in the spring of 2015, the “GMO-FREE” and “Non-GMO” seal was also extended to export beers.
