Die Freien Brauer stand for
a community of private breweries

Introduction into the community "Die Freien Brauer" (Independent Brewers)

A strong community campaigning for art of brewing and way of life

"Die Freien Brauer" is a community of 38 medium-sized private breweries in Germany, Austria and Luxembourg, which have been independent and family-owned for generations. Every one of us is a self-confident, independent entrepreneur and wants to keep his independence. "Die Freien Brauer" is more than a mere economic co-operation: It is a community of values of like-minded, self-confident family-owned breweries which are leading in their respective region. The preservation of the diversity of genuine, pure beer specialities and of a solid regional economic structure - in short: the preservation of the art of brewing and way of life - are in our centre of interest. As a strong community of successful family-owned breweries we feel responsible for these values.

On the basis of our Seven Values we form an efficient network that contributes to the individual success of each owner. The absolute willingness to co-operate and the energetic dedication of every each form the foundation for our success. As a group of strong brands we now and in the future shape the positive image of our traditional beer culture.
