The Pichmännel story


Here's to the Pichmännel

Since 2006 you can clink glasses (or bottles) with the Pichmännel again. The Feldschlößchen brand logo is on every bottle and is the reason that Dresdeners fondly call their Feldschlößchen beer ‘Männelbier’.

The story behind the ‘Männel’

According to a legend, the Pichmännel gets his name from the workers of long ago who sealed the inside of wooden beer barrels with pitch. That was called ‘Pichen’ As a reward for this arduous work they were properly ‘gepichelt’. Even today the Pichmännel logo symbolises original Dresden brewing art and invites convivial beer enjoyment.
