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.
