Little, big company

Nina Anika Klotz

Crew Republic is, for the craft beer scene, a proper company. Wide selection, trendy design, an American brewmaster – they’ve got it all. Just a tiny thing missing for the guys from Munich: their own brewery.

Half Regulars’ Table, Half Revolutionary

Sebastian Priller-Riegele is head of the traditional Riegele Brewery in Augsburg. Still he is brewing somes decent craft beers and therefore living a life of “laptop and lederhose”.

Cheers to the Gemütlichkeit!

Maximilian Krieger from the Riedenburger Brewery and Brooklyn Brewery’s Garret Oliver created a cooperative craft beer. Its most important ingredients: A hand-imported New York ale yeast and heaps of Bavarian “Gemütlichkeit”

The Devil Is In The Details

With his Braukunstkeller Brewery Alexander Himburg became one of the first German craft beer brewers. Instead of brewing everything under the sun (darks, lights, sour beer…), the man from Hesse puts his trust in the importance of paying attention to details

Craft Beer for the Soul

The three American founders of Vagabund Brewery in Berlin were facing a serious shitstorm as well as German prejudice about American Beer (cans of dishwater) due to the German Reinheitsgebot. Then things changed.

A Bit of Peace

Andreas Seufert has been around the world – only to return to the Rhön Mountains, where he founded a brewery five years ago.  Its name is kind of a souvenir from his travels: Pax Bräu

The Prototype

Fritz Wülfing is the prototype of the craft beer brewers: started as a homebrewer, his beer was praised, and he started a real company, Ale-Mania Brewery. On the side, mind you.
