OUR FIRST MASTER BREWER WAS A TRUE GENIUS.
Enter Conrad Brüne. He elevated the passion of the original founders into an art form. As master brewer from 1886 to 1923, Brüne single-handedly masterminded a “Pilsner sensation”. His relentless quest for perfection, fueled by pioneering breakthroughs in brewing technology, cemented the fledgling company’s reputation as the finest purveyor of German Pilsner in the land.
Legend has it his train home was often held at the station with other passengers on board as he still labored over his brewing kettle, possessed by the belief that great taste lay hidden in the painstaking process of new invention. Happily, they were quick to forgive Brüne once they tasted the alluring fruits of his labor. For Brüne, perfecting his craft was everything and, despite the international accolades that soon followed, he was most at home lost in his own world, refining and fine-tuning the inimitable taste that earned him unrivaled renown. At a time when great taste was worth its weight in gold, Conrad Brüne acquired rock star status among the townsfolk of Saxony and beyond.
