Our Beers

We’re really proud of the beers that we make here in our tiny brewery. There are no additives and we proudly brew according to the principles of the German Purity Law which means that we use four ingredients to make our beer. Quality and taste are paramount to us and we formulated the beers below specifically to work with the food we offer in our five restaurants.
We hope you enjoy!

About this Dry Rub
This rub is a combination of salt, pepper, sugar, herbs and spices and can be used to flavour meat in any dish. Unlike a marinade, the dry rub will form a tasty crust on the exterior of the meat when grilled. If grilled, the sugar will caramelize and form a crust to seal in all the flavour and juices. Just about any meat can be rubbed before going on the grill or in the oven. There are people that would disapprove of you using this rub as a seasoning on chips, potatoes and indeed breakfast cereals, but we don’t know any of those people.
