After arriving in South Africa we quickly got bored of all the mainly bottom fermented beers available in the shops.
We were looking for a beer that could really quench your thirst, especially on a long and hot summer day. For us the best beer for this purpose is half a liter of Weizen – the first beer we brewed in 2009.
Luckily our first Weizen turned out to be very drinkable, but the small batch of only 15 litres did not last long. So we had to brew again. After several batches of Weizen the ‘experimental’ phase began and soon our reason for brewing became ‘adding variety’. There are so many different varieties of beer that there is a beer for everyone and for any occasion in our opinion.
We decided from the very beginning to honour our German roots by brewing all our beers according to the German Reinheitsgebot from 1516. The Reinheitsgebot is an ancient German law permitting only the use of malt, hops, water (and yeast) to brew beer.
