We are so excited to announce and introduce Altstadt Brewery as our newest addition to the 2-Row Distributing portfolio! Located in the rolling hill country of Fredericksburg, Texas, Altstadt brings us the authentic Bavarian brewery experience. Their premium German-style beers are carefully made using only four ingredients: hops, barley, yeast, and artesian spring water, guided by the German beer purity laws of 1516. Beer nerds (like us) can learn more about these incredibly strict laws, here.
The brewery itself is an expansive, state-of-the-art brewing facility blending the latest in brewing technology with traditional German brewing practices. The world-class brewing company features hand-selected equipment imported from Germany – you won’t find this machinery anywhere else in the country – allowing for the most authentic Old World style beers to be brewed right in the Texas Hill Country. The unique machinery includes copper-plated Rolec kettles, a direct-fire Kaspar Schulz brewing system (discovered by Altstad’s founders in a pre-WWII Bavarian brewhouse), and reverse osmosis water treatment technology. This results in world-class, locally brewed, German beers.
The spirit of Altstadt Brewery is incomparable because of the commitment to supreme quality ingredients in every brew. Altstadt is a great addition to the 2-Row portfolio, filling in gaps in our European imports with a Texas hook.
Launching along the Texas Gulf Coast on October 28th, keep your eye out for Altstadt Alt, Lager, and Kolsch.
