Our Story

WE MAKE MODERNIST BAVARIAN CRAFT BEER.

IN 2007, WE STARTED TO WORK HAND-IN-HAND WITH DIFFERENT BREWMASTERS FROM SMALL, REGIONAL BAVARIAN FAMILY-RUN BREWERIES TO CREATE CRAFT LAGERS & ALES THAT WE ARE NOT ONLY PROUD TO PRODUCE FOR OUR CUSTOMERS, BUT LOVE TO DRINK OURSELVES.

WHY ‘MODERNIST?’

The basic principles of modernism are rationality and simplicity and the honest expression of the nature of materials and their quality.

We love, live by, and follow this philosophy.

Solid fundamentals. No gimmicks.

Style vs. fashion. While these two terms are often used interchangeably, there is a fundamental difference between them.

Style is an internal attribute, something that defines a sense of who we are.

Fashion, on the other hand, is an external influence, short lived, like the changing seasons.

WE ARE INDEPENDENT

We are a trio of a father, a son & his long time business partner & friend. We currently work with four small Bavarian breweries that are family-owned and family-run.

 WE ARE SMALL

We work with partner with small regional breweries that produce between 10,000hl & 180,000hl per annum.

WE ARE TRADITIONAL

The oldest brewery we work with is almost 500 years old. The youngest brewery we work with is 90 years old. We make beer the old-fashioned way with only barley, yeast, hops and water.

You cant rush craftsmanship, and thats why our traditional brewing processes take up to 12 weeks.

TRUST YOUR TASTEBUDS.

We believe in the quality of small batches and not the quantities of mega production. We obsess about aroma, flavour and balance, not economies of scale.

Our beers are unfiltered, which allows for a fuller, richer taste and smoother mouthfeel.

‘Analog Bier for a Digital World’ is what we like to call it.
