The EKU brewery was established in November 1872 under the name of "Erste Kulmbacher Actien-Exportbier Brauerei." The Brewery is situated in Kulmbach, in Northern Bavaria Germany.
In 1996, the formerly independent breweries Reichelbräu, Sandlerbräu, Mönchshof and EKU were united under the umbrella of the new company Kulmbacher Brauerei AG, but EKU retained its unique, internationally renowned, Bavarian brewing tradition.
