OUR HISTORY

We’ve come a long and above all fascinating way from the unraveling of the art of brewing in the medieval age, towards a modern, contemporary brewing operation that follows 21st century standards. Join us on a journey through time, which over the course of hundreds of years wrote chapters of moving stories and brought a multitude of innovations on the way.
