Bottles are now available. Each of their brews are solid example of their style. Great location next to Hermannoff Winery. The Dierberg family is doing some great construction work in the are to improve the small town feel. Great historic building set up to provide an educational experience of the brewing process.

October 2007. Braudog review is spot on. This place spared no expense, very interesting place to sample a few beers. Only knock I had was that the Octoberfest I was served came in a plastic cup. Granted, they were deluged with 500 people the day previous, but would have preferred glass. Most certainly worth a stop. However, if you are looking for spots to hit in Hermann for beer on ratebeer.com, you probably would have stopped here anyway.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

July 2007 - This is an ambitious brewing project in the heart of historic Hermann, Missouri, a place known more for its wines, but where the German down-home feeling is a perfect fit for this brewer in the German style. I understand these are the folks who had previously operated the Bayernhof Brewery on the outskirts of town. They’ve now done an excellent job in restoring an old grain elevator and mill building into a gorgeous little brewery. They’ve set it up so you can take a look a the brewhouse, the lagering tanks and even their just-starting bottling operation. They offered four beers on tap in a tasting room -- Pilsner, Hefeweizen, Maibock and Doppelbock. A sampler of all four will set you back $4, or you can have a 16oz draft for $3. If you’re hungry, they do have frozen pizzas, but that’s it for now. There’s also some nice schwag for sale, if at a bit high price, including $20 filled growlers to go. They weren’t bottling yet, but seem poised to do so, so future visitors may be able to take a nice variety to go. The staffer (owner? or brewer’s mom?) was an old-school lager lover, even differentiating in her mind to ales versus "beer" and proclaiming their richly malty pilsner as hoppy (it was still good). Friendly enough place that has a lot invested in a nice location -- hope they can generate enough income to stay open!
