Brewer: Daniela Brokelmann
A microbrewery showing creativity but having some troubles with its yeast (at least in the batch I have tasted). The beers are also lacking of a decent malt body. The brewery closed in May 2009 as far as I know but is somehow still appearing on the FCA list?! Anyone: seems to be really inactive.

1 13.2 Client brewer. Founded as a reaction to the take-over of Eichhof by Heineken in 2008 and originally called Keineken. Their beer was initially brewed by Unser Bier and the installation of an own plant was scheduled for 2012.
After a complaint from Heineken, the police seized 1000 bottles of Keineken on August 28th 2009. In January 2010 they changed the name of the brewery so that their beers can now be sold. The beers were then contract brewed by the Brauerei Luzern (August 2010-February 2019) and since then by Getränke Lussi (a scary move if you ask me...)
