“Sometimes, as a brewer, I feel like an artist. It inspires me when the guests like it. ”These wonderful words by Konrad Krug can be read on the Krug Brewery website. The boss of the Krug Bräus is a brewer with heart and soul and runs the family business together with his two daughters. Real woman power in Franconia!
The traditional Krug brewery is located in the heart of the picturesque Franconian Switzerland between dense forests, extensive fields and wonderful rock formations. They have been brewing here with heart and passion since 1834. The Krug family is still in the possession of the brewery to this day and personally ensures that everything runs smoothly here. In keeping with Franconian tradition, there is not only a brewery here, but also a rustic inn and a dance hall, in which the dance floor is regularly swung and one or the other wild party is celebrated. The brewery is located in the idyllic Breitenlesau. Majestic hills with lush forests and rock pinnacles that are thousands of years old alternate with gentle valleys. The happily sudden Wiesent meanders through lush meadows and, in addition to the crystal clear, ice-cold water, also has trout and the now rare crayfish. Numerous hiking and cycling trails criss-cross this natural paradise and attract people from near and far to relax in the green. In the midst of this magical setting is the brewery and the adjoining beer garden, which invites you to take a leisurely rest after a hike or bike ride with a hearty snack and a mug of wonderful beer.
But the good beer from the Franconian family brewery Krug is also appreciated far away. The fans of the jugs stretch across the globe and, according to the brewery, can now even be found in Denmark, Italy and Russia. The down-to-earth, friendly Krug family has been running the brewery for three generations and has worked hard for its reputation. Beers such as their annual festival beer speak for themselves and carry the news of the Krug family's excellent beer out into the world.
