About us

Brander Urstoff is a traditional German beer brand, initially brewed in Germany in 1688. In 2016 our team launched Brander Urstoff as fresh Craft Beer in China. Our Craft Beers have been renowned for their highest quality and strict adherence to the German Purity Law. Rather than importing bottled beer and subjecting it to a hot and shaky journey round the world, Brander Urstoff Craft Beers are brewed locally in China. This guarantees pure freshness, outstanding quality and our famous rich taste.


Products and services

Brander Urstoff Craft Beers are brewed in accordance to the German Purity Law and under strict guidance of our German brew master. Our Craft Beers fulfil highest international quality standards and have been awarded by the German Agricultural Association (DLG) with the “Gold Medal 2018” for their high quality and outstanding taste.

Crafting a novel beer culture in mainland

The 31­ year ­old German citizen Felix

Wendlandt made a bold move in 2016 to start a company in Shanghai and launched Brander Urstoff, a German craft beer made in China with his business partner. “The idea behind this move is that we discovered Chinese beer drinkers have developed a deep interest and broad knowledge about craft beer. They developed a sense for beer and its ingredients  and are able to distinguish a bad brew from a good one, over the past years,” said Felix, an industrial engineer by education but now the general  manager of Brander Urstoff. 

The firm now supplies its products to over 250 restaurants, bars  and  hotels in 25 Chinese cities, thanks to the country’s growing number of craft beer drinkers.
