BRLO Handcrafted with Berlin Love
BRLO is the old Slavic origin of the narre Berlin and refers to a „swamp“ area or „dry spot in a wetland“. We think, that’s quite suitable for a craft beer brand! BRLO is deeply rooted in the history of our beloved capital, but at the same time open to reinterpretation. From the swamps straight into the urban jungle – BRLO represents passionate, creative and handcrafted beer that is both fun and appealing to all senses.
Talking about good energy: True to the motto „Save the planet, it’s the only one with beer“ we are active in our communities and sustainab-le in our practices. As a Berlin based brand we start with saving the planet in this thriving city and regularly support local projects.
In 2014, the company was founded as a project of three friends: Katharina, Christian and Michael. After a boozy evening, the idea to „do so-mething with beer“ matured and did not escape the thoughts of Katharina and Christian. Michael joined the founding team shortly alter the idea was born. He has lived for brewing for as long as he could think (well, almost). After training as a brewer and maltster, he completed his renowned Brewers Diploma. Now Michael is the king of the BRLO brewing pots, even if Katharina and Christian love to diligently give their two cents.
After the successful first years of brewing their own beer, the founders decided to go one step further. They wanted to create a place, where their idea and their beloved beer could grow in new dimensions. The BRLO BRWHOUSE was born and finished their existence as Gypsy Brewers. After taking lodgings with different breweries in Germany for the first years, BRLO finally build an own brewery. But the BRLO BRWHOUSE also gives home to a restaurant, a bar and a beer-garden. In this beer-wonderland you can get a wide, changing selection of beer, good food with a strong focus an vegetables or you can just meet nice people. Of course you will always get the five different BRLO beers.
BRLO beers are brewed with artisanal qualities in small-scale batches. With the exception of our Helles, we stay true to not filtering the brews so that important and healthy nutrients are re-tained. Our most valued ingredient is time. The-refore, each beer is given enough time to mature and develop its unique hop aroma. Until today we developed two German classics: Helles and Weisse, but also three internationally inspired beers: Pale Ale, Porter and German IPA. We only work with selected raw material suppliers. Our malt is strictly organic and comes from a small family business and we use fine aroma hops to create the unique BRLO flavor. In addition, our brewing water is holistically energized with preci-ous stones before even brewing begins. Whether the taste is better is certainly a matter of opinion – but it unquestionably feels better!
