Beer for sunflower oil? Munich pub finds way to beat frying crunch

Munich’s brewpub discovered a new way of combating Europe’s lack of cooking oil. Customers can buy beer with sunflower oil to ensure there is enough stock to fry schnitzels.

Since February, when Russia invaded Ukraine, many European countries including Germany have seen a drop in their supplies.

Munich’s Giesinger Brewery manager thinks they know the solution. For the same amount of sunflower oils, they offer beer lovers a litre each of their favourite brew.

Erik Hoffmann, the manager of the pub, stated that everything happened because there was not enough oil in the kitchen.


Many German supermarkets have lost their sunflower oil bottles and rapeseed bottles since Russia invaded Ukraine. Many shops limit the number of bottles that they sell to customers.

Hoffmann said that oil is hard to find. Hoffmann stated that 400 litres have been exchanged by customers so far.

In German pubs, a litre of beer costs around EUR7 ($7) A 1-liter bottle of sunflower oil is around EUR4.5. This makes it attractive to many customers.


Customer Moritz Baller bought 80 litres of Ukrainian sunflower oil while on a humanitarian aid trip. For his birthday, he swapped his shipment with eight crates beers.

He stated, “The campaign is cool.” “We can get cheap beer and Giesinger Brewery has been also helped.”
