Albert Beier (September 28, 1900 – September 21, 1972) was a German footballer. He was a physically inclined, robustly built player.

Beier was born in Lokstedt, and started his footballing career at Eintracht Lokstedt, before moving to FC Union 1903 Altona and Hamburger SV. His first success came with a North German championship victory and appearance in the German Cup final with a town from Hansa, after achieving two draws against 1. FC Nuremberg.

In 1922 he also won the North German championship title after victories against Union Oberschöneweide. In the 1923/24 season he became victorious for a third time with Hamburger, but in the next season he lost in a cup final match versus Nuremberg.

He played his first international match on December 14, 1924 against Switzerland, a 1-1 stalemate. He achieved eleven caps in total for the international team. In 1925 he won the North German championship for a fourth time with Hamburg, but, with Beier suffering with injuries part of the way through the season, other domestic competitions were out of Hamburg's reach.

He played in two more federal cup finals in 1927 and 1928, and he played in the Olympic football tournament in 1928.
