EN – Export Intro
It’s the Hamburg Beer Company’s vision to professionally satisfy the demand for high-quality as well as innovate Craft Beer abroad.
The German beer and brewing history globally enjoys an excellent reputation that we constantly aim to reinforce with the increasing range and quality of German Craft Beer. Our flagship is the portfolio centering around our Ratsherrn Pilsener, which was honored with the Meininger Award 2017 as the best German Pilsener.
Known and appreciated as the characteristic German beer style, this Pilsener portfolio has the potential to make it big in the international market. For the development of the brand, we will only collaborate with qualified beer importers, who share our appreciation for good Craft Beer.
This is how we aim to establish Ratsherrn Pilsener permanently in retail and gastronomy, before we expand the international focus on further German breweries in the next step. We also offer an additional consulting service, which is crucial to eventually becoming the main contact for distributing and hence establishing (German) Craft Beers internationally.
To raise Ratsherrn’s level of awareness globally, we will present our amazing beer on numerous events and organize Tap Takeovers in the gastro scene and various relevant bars.
Together with Ratsherrn from Hamburg, we’re looking forward to crossing more and more borders and making our great beer available to the whole world – Ratsherrn goes global!

You want to experience fascinating beers with personality and character? Then we’re proud to introduce to you some of our partner breweries.
The Moortgat family has been brewing beers in Breendonk (Belgium) for four generations. Every generation aims for perfection, the highest possible quality, and the best craftsmanship in brewing, to impress their clients with fresh ideas, beer styles, and varieties. Brands like Duvel, Maredsous, Liefmans, and Achouffe are proof of the company’s inspiring diversity.
With a red hat and a sack full of diversity he arrives, the gnome from the Belgian Ardennes. The first brew has been created in 1982 and made La Chouffe a worldwide success in the meantime. Today, the various beers are being enjoyed in over 40 countries.
The brewery de Konigshoeven has been brewing La Trappe Trappist beer since 1884 on the premises of the Cistercian abbey Onze Lieve Vrouw van Konigshoeven . It’s one of the very few breweries worldwide being allowed to use the “Authentic Trappist product” logo. The best guarantee for authenticity, recipe, tradition and quality. Beer is only allowed to be called Trappist beer when it’s brewed inside the walls of a Trappist abbey under the supervision of monks, if part of the revenue is donated to charity.
Tradition by conviction. A brewing history that has been part of the Liefmans family for 300 years. Finest Lambic beers that convince through creativity and passion. Thanks to the empathy of the first Belgian master brewer, the beers achieved a quality that is perfected today.
Kansas City at its best! The Boulevard Brewing Company has been creating Craft Beer since 1988 and is now number 1 in the Midwest. Here, they combine their love for beer with their passion for brewing. Having received countless gold medals over the years, they earned a well-deserved spot among the 15 best Craft Beer breweries in the USA.
Craft Beer for the people. That means: creativity without compromise – as well as epitomizing the Craft Beer revolution. The beer punks from Scotland evolved to a global player in only 10 years, now also proving to the people of Germany what Craft Beer can accomplish. It’s BrewDog’s most important mission to infect the customers with the same burning passion they themselves feel for Craft Beer.
Why look so far afield, when the good is close by? Dedicated to the craft and the brewing history of Hamburg, Ratsherrn creates beer delicacies and seasonal rarities right inside the renowned Schanzenhöfe in the center of the city. The deep affection for the brewers’ home town is celebrated in a great variety of creative beers.
In November of 2013, three friends and beer enthusiasts founded McGargles, which is not only a huge success in their beer country Ireland, but also gains more and more followers across the borders. This comes as no surprise, given their constantly expanding catalogue of excellent, carefully crafted beers with a soft spot for a full body and authentic unconventionality.
Few others manage to excite beer fans with such courage and innovation as Mikkeller does since 2006. So much boldness doesn’t go unnoticed: already over 40 countries enjoy their beers, which also aim at being a great alternative to wine and champagne at the dinner table.
