Some would claim that the Germans, particularly Bavarians, have the best beer, the best brewing culture, the best beer fans and the best customs for enjoying beer (you may have never been to Germany, but you've certainly heard of Oktoberfest). And the folks most likely to make such claims would be the Germans themselves. But fear not, all this "best of the best" superiority talk is not a threat of World War III, it's simply a pride that the Germans have earned over at least a millennium of brewing.Located in Duisburg, Germany's 11th largest city and home to Europe's largest inland port, the König Brauerei was founded in 1858 near the confluence of the great Rhine and Ruhr waterways by Theodor König. A savvy businessman, he realized the potential for a regional brewery and the relative ease of exportation via port waterways. Today the brewery is best known for their Pilsener beer, a style which Theodor König intended to specialize in, but at the time the brewery was founded in 1858, this was a risky move. Pilsener was still an emerging, relatively complex style to brew. His instincts soon paid off when pilsener (also spelled ‘pilsner’) became the world's most popular beer style.So, at the confluence of the Rhine and Ruhr waterways was the fortunate convergence of business savvy and luck which eventually led to Germany's "King of Beers" (note the text "Das König der Biere" on the label).
