Only those breweries are allowed to brew Kaltenberg beers which guarantee compliance of all Royal Bavarian brewing standards and specification and CMJ brewery is one of them. The fully automated green field brewery has been set up at Byrnihat with a cost of about Rs 125 crores. CMJ brewery has also set up  100 KLPD state of art grain based Extra Neutral Alcohol (ENA) Plant at Byrnihat with and investment  of Rs250 Crores.

Brewed under the German Purity Law, this will be India’s first super premium beer available at half the price of an imported beer in India.  Through launch of this brand, we aim to capture about one-two per cent of the premium beer market in India in next 3-5 years.”

Konig Ludwig International is controlled and managed by HRH Prinz Luitpold von Bayern. He is a member of the Royal family of Bavaria. All beers from Kaltenberg Castle are brewed under the strict quality control of HRH Prinz Luitpold von Bayern and his technical team as per the Bavarian Purity Law which has been issued by one of his ancestors in the year 1516.

Their expertise in the brewing business can be traced back to 1260 making Kaltenberg, possibly, the oldest beer brand in the world. Over almost 800 centuries they have set such important milestones as the Purity Law of 1516, the wheat beer monopoly, the foundation of the Brewing University at Freising, the beer garden edict and the world famous Oktoberfest.

The brand name Kaltenberg originates from its birth place in the Kaltenberg Castle, where beer has been brewed since 1871, and is still a Royal residence. It is the most sold international brand in the Royal Bavarian portfolio. This legacy is an integral element of Kaltenberg beers. The brewing know-how, quality and brand management have been developed and fine-tuned over the centuries. This quality performance is evidenced by regular success in international beer competitions and quality evaluations, such as the DLG, WBA and European Beer Star. Konig Ludwig International has license partners in over 10 markets. Where-ever the beers are locally produced, it has proven the capability to replicate world-wide the same high standard in quality, taste and brand positioning.

CMJ Brewery had launched three of its own brands in north east in March 2013. The brands are manufactured under the German technical know-how from Konig Ludwig International. All the three brands namely Magpie Premium Lager Beer, Savage Super Strong Beer & Nutcracker Premium Strong Beer received an over whelming response from the consumers in the North East Region.
