They are young, different and they want the revolution. Timm Schnigula and Mario Hanel are fed up with ordinary beer: "We only brew beers that we feel like and we only bottle what we like," the two founders say on the Crew Republic website. Before they founded their original company, the “CrewAle Werkstatt”, the Munich-based people rebelled against their former office job. Inspired by artisanal beers that they tasted across the globe, Hanel and Schnigula were no longer business consultants but rather entrepreneurs in their own brewery.
Ten employees and six different beer specialties later, the hand grenade-like hops can also be found far outside the Munich city limits. Unusual names, colorful labels and humorous product descriptions - Voila, that's Crew Republic, the revolution turned beer.
