Oettingen, 29 March 2016. 
The naturally cloudy Weissbier 12 promises aromatic, full-bodied refreshment for the first warmer days of the year. The beer owes its name to its high wort content. In terms of its taste, the Weissbier 12 has a pleasantly mild yeast flavour. “Our new craft wheat beer is geared to beer drinkers who like a very full-bodied traditional taste,” explains Jörg Dierig, Managing Director of the Oettinger Brewery. The Weissbier 12 is sold in environmentally-friendly half-litre reusable glass bottles.

Oettinger Weissbier 12 is available in well-stocked drinks retailers and food retailers throughout Germany. Oettinger’s unique range now includes something to suit almost every beer taste: alongside 25 Original Oettinger brand beers and beer-based mixed drinks, including Vollbier, wheat beer, Pilsner lager and alcohol-free drinks as well as soft drinks, the company also produces additional beer brands specifically for food retailers and regional brands. The pure beer brewer has developed in recent decades to become a multifaceted drinks producer with around 300 different products for sale in Germany and abroad.


Producing around 930 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, a Logistics Centre 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.
