The venue for the annual meeting of private brewery inns from now six nations was the young Schulzens in the old imperial and Hanseatic town of Tangermünde, idyllically situated on the middle reaches of the Elbe less than a hundred kilometres west of the capital. Owner Christian Schulz and brewer Gerrit Körner have started their own new brewery there, where the “Old Brewery” once stood right next to the Old Mark church tower.
“A century after the last drop of beer was brewed on our farm, we are reviving the long Tangermünde brewing tradition,” was initially the vision. Several craft-brewed varieties have been inviting visitors to taste and enjoy since the end of 2017, produced in the show brewery, all in accordance with the German Purity Law of 1516.
And much more than that: they have created an adventure farm where you can eat and drink wonderfully, celebrate and dance, sit, visit, rest and experience something – as I said, in the middle of the picturesque old town of Tangermünde on the Elbe. Today much, but by no means everything, revolves around beer. Schulzen’s glass brewery is the centre of the farm. Surrounding it is a cosy restaurant, an inviting hotel, a spacious hall, a quaint vaulted bar, a beer garden with a view of the Elbe and a historical museum of curiosities.
