The story begins...

...when three American friends David Spengler, Tom Crozier, and Matt Walthall decided to brew their own beer at home. They had grown tired of the limited selection, and homogeneous taste, of domestic beer found in Berlin stores, Spätkaufs and restaurants. They shared their creations with friends old and new in an effort to challenge preconceived notions of what beer should and could taste like. Over time, the group improved their skills and began expanding their recipes to include new and original styles of craft beer. In 2011, David, Tom, and Matt decided to take the next step and create a full fledged brewing company. Vagabund Brauerei was born.

After quite a while of planning, home brewing, more planning, and more home brewing, Vagabund had its little nano-brewery operating and a taproom right next to it for serving the beer and conversing with the people who enjoy drinking it. The brewery is just so big to brew enough to share, but small enough to allow for creativity and experimentation. As we move forward, we will stay committed to the local craft beer community that has done so much to help make this a reality.  


We look forward to seeing you in the taproom!
