Oetker now controls German beer brands Berliner Pilsener, Brinkhoff und Oderland in addition to its current brands Radeberger, Clausthaler, Schoefferhofer, Binding, Berliner Kindl, DAB and Ur-Krostitzer.

Oetker said it sees the takeover as a step to combating progress made by foreign beer makers in Germany. Brau & Brunnen had been on the market for some time - a merger with BrauHolding fell through last fall - and there was conjecture the brewing operation might go to a foreign brewing company.
