Our Brewmaster Reinhard Knispel

Since 1998, he has brewed the famous Rathaus beer from Lucerne: Brewmaster Reinhard Knispel really knows his trade. And that is why, since 2011, he also brews our Stadtkeller beer. The wort flows underground from the Rathaus directly into the fermenting and storage tanks of the Stadtkeller – and after four weeks maturation, you get it directly from the tap into your glass.

Reinhard Knispel learnt the art of brewing in a medium-sized brewery on the outskirts of Munich. He polished his expertise in various breweries in Germany and Switzerland during his time as a journeyman. He became a master of his trade at the «Braumeisterschule Doemens» (the famous academy for brewing and beverage technology) in Munich.
