Trümer Brewery

Tour of Trumer Pils Brewery, Brauhausgasse 2, 5162 Obertrum am

We reserved a tour ahead of time for a group of at least ten. On the morning of the tour, six other prospective attendees decided to go on the sound of Music tour. So we ended up with a smaller tour of six.

We didn’t know it at the time, but tours of this brewery are usually done in very large groups, so our private tour turned out to be a treat for both us and our tour guide.

The brewery is amazing, with open tanks that look like they are hanging in mid-air.

We also tasted some hoppy varieties that I wasn’t familiar with. Delicious.

So the tour was great, but it was our tour guide who won the day. She mixed stories of the brewery, with history and her life. Like they say on the TV singing competitions, she made it her own, with emotion.

We loved connecting in this human way to the stories of the brewery and European history. Europeans have a much greater knowledge of history and how it relates to the present.
