Old walls, new beers

No beer had been brewed at the Union Brewery for almost 50 years, but since 2015 the brewery has been writing a new chapter in its history. The new brewhouse was built in the same location as the old one, and the owners were keen to create a contrast of historical brick building and state-of-the-art stainless steel brewhouse. The owners are passionate about craft beers, and about Bremen as the home of their brewery. The logical conclusion, therefore, was to call their beers BREMER (of Bremen), and BREMER beers are only brewed and bottled in the city.

Craft stands for artisan production processes, for an openness towards new and surprising taste experiences, and for the courage to create them – but also for maintaining traditional types of beer. This philosophy is why the brewery insists on local production, and the beers are neither heat-treated nor filtered, which means they retain a natural cloudiness. Visitors can take part in tours, beer seminars and beer-brewing days at the brewery to find out where and how BREMER craft beers are made and bottled.
