When you have left the big roads and are deep in the south of Germany, the meadows are already a little greener, the sky a little bluer and the air a little clearer than elsewhere. The story of our beer begins in Oberallgäu, the southernmost tip of Bavaria.
If you leave your car here at the foot of the Grünten, the massive guardian of the Allgäu, take a deep breath and set off on foot towards the mountain, the imposing alpine landscape will soon cast its spell over you. The wind rushes through the fir trees, small streams gurgling towards the valley. With every step you come to rest more and your view widens to the little things along the way.
Soon the first alpine pastures come into view and this is where the beer sommelier Hans-Hermann and Berni, our master brewer, begin their territory. The highest and probably most extraordinary brewing location for German beer is located at around 1,000 m above sea level. A former, converted cable car station serves as a brewery there. Here the two connoisseurs can pursue their passion undisturbed and develop beers full of character, strictly brewed according to the Bavarian purity law and old craft tradition. Pure Alpine spring water is the most important ingredient in their beer compositions, plus hops and malt, which, depending on the variety and planting, shape the character of the beer.
