Unlock your inner beer connoisseur
It started in his parents’ garage and is now a thriving business: Markus Hoppe’s “Hoppebräu” brewery is all about handcrafted beers, including unusual variations for adventurous beer aficionados. Alongside his brewery, he runs a popular taproom where guests can sample his beers while peeking into the state-of-the-art brewery through a large window. Next to classic varieties such as Helles or Weissbier there are unique microbeer creations on tap that owe their distinct taste to a special brewing technique.
