The guys from Flügge want to be one thing above all: wild! Not only have they declared war on the Purity Law, they have completely mixed up the conventional list of beer ingredients. Your specialty are yeasts. They work with old, long-forgotten farm yeasts and so-called wild yeasts. The latter are yeasts that used to get into the brewing brew unplanned because they stuck to the remaining beer ingredients and caused mixed fermentation. Yeasts that open up completely new worlds of taste in the brewing process and give Flügge beers a unique variety of flavors. Only a few German breweries dare to use the wild yeasts, as they are considered difficult and uncontrollable. Nothing to stop the Flügge guys from doing it. Wild, let's just say!
Dominik Pietsch and Joachim Amrhein, the founders of the Flügge brewery, are anything but uncreative minds in their profession. Even in the unconventional craft beer scene, the Frankfurters stand out. After the starting shot in 2017, the two set themselves the goal of turning the German beer industry on its head. First of all, they threw the strict purity law overboard in order to be able to approach the choice of ingredients more freely. The result is exciting, innovative products such as a hybrid of beer and wine - the Flügge Sieke & Ole was created in coordination with the winemaker Daniel Mattern and is a real specialty in the Flügge range. But Flinn , Fil and Anni are also unconventional beers from Flügge. Everyone can do classic - but what these two guys conjure up is extravagant and extra class.
The three founders of the microbrewery Flügge came up with their unusual name during a long drive. The term fledgled is mainly used in the context of young birds that have just left their nest. Wild, free creatures who do not allow themselves to be restricted by the conventions and norms of the world around them. It fits like a fist and is a concept that is being implemented like hardly any other. The name says it all when it comes to the design of the labels: every Flügge bottle is decorated with a label with a colorful, hand-painted bird. The poultry comes from the pen of artist Pia Zölzer, who lovingly creates lively little mascots for Flügge's unique beers.
