Currently we are working with Kluevers Brewery in Neustadt in Holstein. I came across this brewery on a bike ride years ago and was super impressed by the quality of beer. We now work together with Kluevers to produce our own beer. That’s right we have our own beer. We develop the recipe in house and send it to Kluevers to perfect it.
