Hermann Graf zu Stolberg-Stolberg, a direct ancestor of the owner family, brewed the dark beer first time in 1882. About 100 years later, in 1995, Graf Stolberg Dark was remade based on the original recipe.

Michael Rudolph, an author of “Titanic”, mentioned this special dark beer in his book “The Hundred Best Beers in the World”. The Newspaper “Die Welt” referred Graf Stolberg Dunkel to the top 10 best beers in the world. Numerous awards by German Agricultural Society justify the highest quality of this archetypical beer specialty
