BroBier was founded in 2018 by two good friends from Reckendorf who happen to look a bit like brothers from photos on their website. There is a bit of controversy regarding the what many refer to as a “ghost” brewery, whereby a brewery pretends to be separate entity to perhaps tap into another market. The BroBier duo do their brewing at Schlossbrauerei Reckendorf but it appears they have their own area of the facility where they solely brew. That they are from the town of Reckendorf makes this plausible. They look fairly young and starting your own brewery isn’t cheap. I like their motto: Beer should do what it does best, taste good.

I was leery of the operation and the beer in bottled form was more in line with German Craft Beer rather than typical Franconian brewery prices. That said, it can be argued that those prices are too low to be sustainable. So, I saw their Vollbier in the supermarket and picked it up. I was surprised and liked it.

I had some local friends unhappy with their move into Bamberg gastronomy but I couldn’t resist stopping into Brüderla to sample some of their beers on tap. While it’s unlikely to enter my regular rotation when in town, I can see where it would appeal to many and it’s certainly a convenient location and they brew specialty beers, likely when I will return to sample. It’s a new brewery and it’s always hoped they just get better and better.
