Breweries and their cozy dining rooms are a magnet for pleasure-seeking visitors and attract the sparkling life. With the choice of their location, many brewers have given entire districts a renaissance and brought a breath of fresh air to abandoned buildings and districts. A small miracle also took place in Nuremberg: With his Schanzenbräu, Stefan Stretz helped the Gostenhof district to change its image and transformed it into a lively meeting place for young and old. How did he do it? Of course with the finest beer!
However, the story of the Schanzenbräu began some time before they moved to Gostenhof. The first brewing trials are started in the district of Bärenschanze. Back then, the brewer proved his true skills, because his initial brews were not brewed on a real brewing system. Instead, the resourceful beer lover tinkered together his equipment from former washing kettles and sawed-open beer barrels and brewed with whatever he could find. That was in 2004. Three years and a few beers later, Stefan moved to Gostenhof with bag and baggage. A stone's throw from today's pub, the brewer found premises that offered a little more luxury and professional equipment. It was to be another eight years before Stefan was able to give the go-ahead for his own brewery. Construction began in neighboring Nürnberg-Höfen in 2015. A year later the brewery was finished and the fun could begin. Stefan's patience was rewarded with success.
The fine creations are served in the Schanzenbräu tavern. The rustic pub has breathed new life into the Gostenhof district, which has fallen into disrepute. Stefan deliberately chose this location and from the start he planned to polish it up. His courageous move to open a pub in Gostenhof encouraged others to do the same: Today the district is a lively meeting place and offers its visitors a potpourri of the most diverse shops and offers. Sometimes it only takes one person with a vision, Stefan has proven that. And by the way, he also brews delicious beer. The visionary's range is a fine, small selection of Nuremberg classics. All beers are unfiltered and are produced according to the specifications of the Bavarian Purity Law with craftsmanship and passion. Stefan's Kehlengold is particularly popular, refreshing and delighting with its full-bodied character and stable malt body. In addition to his work as a brewer and urban developer, Stefan is a Bavarian ambassador and in this capacity travels the world to make Nuremberg known for its specialties and attractions.
