Roman Schrott, Event & tour manager: “What makes our location so special is, that it is a living brewery. During daytime, we are rolling our barrels, it is loud and everything smells from malt and hop. And only a few hours later, when the lights go on, you have a perfect location with a very special atmosphere.”
