While brewing is one of the oldest crafts and has a long history of tradition, our brewery, in par with everything else in Silicon Valley, is fully automated and is run by WinBrew, a special software program developed by Nerb Engineering in Freising, Germany. While we still use the highest quality two-row malted barley, Hallertauer hops, and German yeast from Weihenstephan as we do in all our brewery restaurants, the technology allows us to better control the brewing environment and monitor the brewing process to ensure the consistent high quality of our lagers.
Dan Gordon's lifelong dream was realized in March 1997 when the first batch of beer was brewed at our state-of-the-art brewery and bottling facility in San Jose. The 114,000 square
foot facility with a 25,000 square foot warehouse has the capacity to produce 110,000 barrels of our authentic German style beers.
*All of our beers are brewed in accordance with the German Purity Law of 1516 (Reinheitsgebot).
