Braucommune in Freistadt

Braucommune in Freistadt

AUT | A real commune, a community in the legal sense. Shares may only be traded among the inhabitants of the 149 houses inside the historical town walls.

Hannes Leitner is the master brewer. When tasting his beers, the good people of Freistadt are as strict as the jury members of the European Beer Star. Leitner’s motto is: “Cobbler, stick to your trade. Do what you do best.” and “Always pour a lot of feelings into the brewing pan.”
