Additional Information

The Krombacher Brauerei was founded on the 4th February 1803 by Johannes Haasis and is one of the largest privately owned breweries in Germany and ranks number two among Germany's best selling beers. In October 1922, Bernhard Schadeberg (the grandfather of current CEO Bernhard Schadeberg) assumed the management of the company, which is still run as a family business to this day.

Over the years the brand identity is updated and re-launched with subtle changes, a change of Logo or a new font.
Sometimes this brand update is done by the new owners after a brewery has been sold, other times just to give the brand a fresh new look on the ever growing market.

Below are some notes to help identify some of these changes and an aid to reference the year of the glass.
