Ah, Bremen, Germany in the 12th Century. The city renown as a famous brewing center and where our Girl was born. Her name, “St. Pauli” comes from the ancient St. Paul’s Monastery on which the original St. Pauli Brewery was founded and built in the 17th Century. She tastes great and may be good for our soul too.
Our St. Pauli Girl Beer is brewed with only the finest natural ingredients, without any compromise to quality or taste. In fact, St. Pauli Girl is brewed according to an ancient food regulation still in force throughout Germany today.
A Bavarian duke known as Wilhem IV sought to establish a far-reaching standard, which all German beers were required to follow. The German Purity Law of 1516 created a common ground for “how beer is to be brewed and served in both winter and fall.” The actual decree states: “In particular we wish that from now on, in all towns, markets and villages, nothing more is used for beer than barley malt, hops and water alone.”
St. Pauli Girl Lager and Special Dark were first introduced into select U.S. markets in 1965, and then expanded nationally by 1975. St. Pauli Non-Alcoholic was first sold in the United States in 1991.
If you like a Girl that has a deep golden color, distinctive full-bodied taste and “hoppy” aroma, then the Lager is for you. This Girl has been a Gold Medal winner for the American Tasting Institute Best Full Calorie German Lager. Two row spring barley from the south of England, a special strain of yeast, ice-age glacier water from the “Rotenburger Rinne,” plus hops from the famous “Hallertau Hop Gardens” in southern Germany are the ingredients that give St. Pauli Girl Lager its unsurpassed quality and taste and keeps you coming back for more.
For those that prefer a non-alcoholic Girl, St. Pauli Non-Alcoholic (N.A.) has a pleasant hop aroma, a well-balanced malt flavor, crisp hop finish and the taste of an imported beer without the alcohol. This N.A. has been a Gold Medal winner for the American Tasting Institute Best Imported Non-Alcoholic Malt Beverage. She’s a pure, high-quality Girl. St. Pauli N.A. is also the #1 Imported Non-Alcoholic Malt Beverage sold in the U.S.
