Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Three years have passed since the APU Company started producing Kaltenberg, one of the best Bavarian yeast brewery brands. On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of “German Beer Purity Law”, the Prince Luitpold of Bavaria has visited Mongolia, to attend the celebration here.

On 23 April 1516, the Duke of Bavaria Wilhelm IV issued his famous purity regulation for the brewing of Bavarian Beer, stating that only barley, hops, and water could be used. To acknoledge the production of purely brewed Kaltenberg by APU Company, the first and only in Asia, the lawful heir of the purity law initiator Prince Luitpold took part in the celebration, which has been held at Ikh Mongol bar.

APU Company has been pursuing the purity law and the German technology in the productions of most of its beers. Kaltenberg beer has gotten its name from the famous Kaltenberg castle, which remains as the center of royal brewery of Bavaria.

Family of Prince Luitpold of Bavaria is the current owner of the Kaltenberg brewing factory, inheriting and maintaining the purity of the classic brewery even after the decline of Kingdom of Bavaria after the World War I.
