The small town of Eltmann is located in the picturesque Main meadows of Lower Franconia. The first beer was brewed here at a time when Johann Wolfgang Goethe was still in his infancy. Johann Georg Wagner was responsible for the constant flow of barley juice, whose descendants still work in the brewhouse today.

In family hands from the start

Johann Georg and his father Georg Johann laid the foundation for a family tradition that currently extends over eight generations. After Georg Johann brewed mainly for his own needs and the neighborhood, his son opened a brewery and made his father's beer available to a larger audience. The restaurant still exists today and, as the Eschenbacher Bräustübla, is a contact point for the citizens of Eltmann and their guests. In parallel to brewing, the family ran a farm. For almost two centuries, the brewery remained closely linked to agriculture. It was not until 1952, under the leadership of Karl Georg Wagner, that the focus shifted completely to beer production. The brewery survived both world wars and continues to enjoy growing popularity today. The favorable location on the connecting road between Bamberg and Schweinfurt meant that more and more people from outside came to know and appreciate the fine Eschenbacher beer. Through constant modernization, expansion and the use of the latest technologies, the brewery steadily grew beyond its regional borders. After the work of Georg, two Johanns and five different Karls, the brewery is now one of the most successful companies in the region. Karl Werner Wagner is now at the helm of the Eschenbach brewery.

Anyone who rests will rust

Although the Wagners might occasionally rest on their laurels and slow down, the family never stands still. With the aim of constantly improving and continually exceeding our own quality standards, the team works tirelessly day after day. Handcrafted beer, which is made from regional raw materials according to traditional recipes, is the Eschenbacher's hobby. Creations like their Bavarian Helles Franz Josef enrich the German beer landscape and are not only enjoyed by the people in Eltmann. Because the workforce not only cares about the beer but also their homeland, the brewery is committed to environmental protection and supporting the region. State-of-the-art technology makes the manufacturing process efficient and environmentally friendly. With their beer, the Wagner family gives us a piece of Franconian joie de vivre and keeps the area's ancient brewing tradition alive.
