Our Production sites in Europe
With the acquisition of the group’s first brewery, extensive investment in modernisation took place as early as 2003. Today, Frankfurter Brauhaus has three PET lines, one bottling line for reusable bottles and one for kegs. We are therefore able to produce an overall volume of up to 3 million hectolitres. Whether Pilsner, export, wheat beer, Radler or premium festival beer, Frankfurt produces multi-award winning types of beer.

A Success Story
We combine the traditional art of brewing with flexible bottling, and deliver to customers all over the world.
In 2003, TCB took over Frankfurter Brauhaus in Frankfurt (Oder), where today’s headquarters of the TCB Group are located. From that time, the demand for PET bottles grew rapidly, which resulted in the founding of ViaPlast in 2005. Since then, ViaPlast has been managing the production of recyclable packaging. With the purchase of the French Brasserie Champigneulles Brewery in 2006, market shares grew and a separate sales and distribution company became essential. Continuing investments in modern bottling equipment increased sales volume and revenues, and made it possible in 2011 to buy the “Feldschlößchen” Brewery in Dresden. Co-operation with large European retail chains such as Mercadona, ALDI, EDEKA, LIDL, NORMA and other well-known international key customers accelerated the growth of our brewery group, allowing the acquisition of the traditional German Gilde Brewery from Hanover in 2015.
With currently four production sites and an annual production of about 9 million hectolitres of beer, TCB combines the German and French art of brewery, selling first-class and multi-award winning types of beer under one roof.
