Dating back to the 1840's, the Schultheiss brewery is now one of the largest in Berlin. With the merger of the Berliner Kindl brewery and the Berliner-Schultheiss brewery in January 2006 a new brewery created under the name Berliner Kindl-Schultheiss-Brauerei GmbH; one of the largest breweries in the Berlin area. Since then they have brewed the Kindl range alongside more mainstream brands such as Berliner Pilsner. The Kindl's are all Berliner-Wiesse beers made to tradition recipes but helped by the new breweries modern equipment. All beers from Schultheiss are brewed to the German Purity Law.
