Even though the Landgang Brauerei (the former Hopper Bräu) is a bit off the beaten track and primarily a production site, Hamburg's craft beer fans are happy to make the trek to the somewhat remote industrial zone in Hamburg Bahrenfeld. Not only is this where Hamburg's world flagship "Lütte Höög" was developed, the names of the Landgang's proprietary beers also sound intriguing: "Helle Aufregung" ("Uncontainable Excitement") "Amerikanischer Traum ("American Dream") and "Dunkle Macht" ("Dark Force") deliver on their promises. Master brewer Sascha Bruns, who learned his trade at Schoppe Bräu, makes sure of that.
The brewery is an open house with its own taproom, with a bar installed in a genuine container. Hot dogs are served as well as their own beers, which can also be ordered in small glasses for tasting. There are regular events and tours, which the brewery publicises on its website and on Facebook.
It's open from Monday to Thursday from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm and on Friday from 9.00 am to 2.00 pm.
