I came across a stand set up by the company Wachsmann. I got to talking with the company’s owner, Jost Wachsmann, and told him about my dream of building a beer factory.
He put me on the right path.

Company history.

Some 30 years ago, the first craft beer breweries opened in Germany and immediately became a life style culture for those who love to enjoy fresh beer directly at their local brewer. It was a counter movement to the mainstream of large, industrial breweries in the 70's and 80's which reigned the market up to then.

Jost Wachsmann, a native German brewmaster and graduate from the famous brewing engineering program at Weihenstephan University in Munich, was one of the foremost pioneers of this movement by designing and producing one of the very first microbreweries after WW II in Germany.

His invention of setting up the essential components of a regular brewery on a small, modular construction and combining it with traditional Bavarian coppersmith skills have been adopted nowadays by most competitors.


Wachsmann's idea not only brought back to people the taste of fresh brewed beer, but it has become an enormous trend in the craft beer world today, because it's accessible to everybody, even those with small investment capacities.

The advantages and reliability of genuine German craftsmanship products have been established facts since ever, thus the very first independent brewers in California chose WACHSMANN® breweries as well. Since the early 1990’s these plants are still working properly, the owners are justly proud of their “Micros made in Germany”.



In 1998, after the fall of the Soviet-Union, the first craft beer breweries opened in Saint-Petersburg , showing the first time ever a stainless-steel WACHSMANN® brewhouse installed in a restaurant in Russia. Since then 9 more projects have been installed in the most beautiful cities in Russia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine by well-known investors such as Oleg Tinkoff.


The big gate to the east

In the early 2000s craft beer became also trend in Italy and the first microbrewery WACHSMANN® was installed in Naples in 2001, followed by L'Aquila, Saronno, Latina, Como and the latest, a 40hl VBS Brewing System in Val Rendena (Italian Alps). Many more breweries have ever since been exclusively produced and delivered to countries such as Japan, Poland, Spain, Thailand, China, Tunisia, Turkey, Costa Rica, Finland, Germany and more exciting projects are being in construction as we speak.



Our Vision 40 years ago


The dynamic development in the past 4 decades has led to thousands of new craft breweries worldwide, creating tens of thousands of new jobs and it continues to rise. This confirms our vision of more than 35 years ago:

• Beer quality first instead mass production

• Enjoying beer in a local brewery is engaging and puts the customers in first place
