It began with our common vision to further develop the cultural asset we call beer and brew beers outside the established rules. But before we began brewing craft beers in Germany, we went on a journey and visited brewers all over the world who shared our exploratory spirit and the demand for something special. The journey took us to Great Britain, Belgium, Italy, and to the USA on several occasions. After enjoying fascinating beer brewed with dedication and technical artistry and following hours of discussion about beer styles, unusual brewing methods, and ingredients, our ideas about our own craft beers began to reach maturity. By the end of this inspirational research trip, we were convinced that we have to brew our own beers: Craft beers with a German twist.
