A pale Lager originally brewed by Dortmunder Union in Dortmund Germany, in 1873. Soft-textured and influenced by the Pilsner lager brewed in Pilsen, it became popular with industrial workers and was responsible for Dortmunder Union becoming Germany's largest brewery and Dortmund having the highest concentration of breweries in Germany. When heavy industry declined in the area, the sales of Dortmunder also declined. By 1994 the Dortmund Union brewery had shut down and merged with several other Dortmund breweries, forming Brinkhoff's Brewery.
