A stones throw from the Hessen border, Braugemeinschaft Edertal in Beddelhausen is just the right side of hobby to count on these pages.
Run by three friends in their spare time, the five beers are only available by the barrel. They have a rather excellent-looking fire engine which has been converted to dispense beer. It appears there may be a brewery at the Hannes Hof pension in Riedlhütte, near St.
I have contacted them in the hope of more information. Can anyone shed any light on Läuterwerk in Münster? Is this a planned brewery, a cuckoo or neither?
The website for Peterbier in Raesfeld is offline and the name up for sale, so it would appear brewing has ceased. Like Tuesday, no specific news to report today, just some additional entries on the cuckoo page. No specific news to report today, just a few additional entries on the cuckoo page.
Does anyone know anything about Kugelbräu in Agawang, near Kutzenhausen? It appears to be a well-equipped hobby brewery rather than anything more professional but it is getting difficult to tell these days.
I got a bit carried away yesterday. It is tomorrow Zum Rittmeister will begin selling house-brewed beer, not today. In the absence of any other news and to extend my run of consecutive days updates to thirty-nine I'm reminding you the first house-brewed beers go on sale at Zum Rittmeister in Kemnitz tomorrow.
The Gaffel brewery next to the railway just north of Köln Hauptbahnhof is set to close next summer. Production will move across the river to their Porz site during August.
The latter previously brewed some of Gaffel's output but has not done for for a number of years. One tiny brewery I had been trying to confirm existed has closed. Chamer Zoiglbrauerei was in Katzberg, just north of Cham. It lasted barely a year. It appears brewing may now have ceased at Späth-Bräu in Lohberg. Filling was transferred to Löwenbrauerei Passau just over a year ago but Bierführer Ostbayern reports no beer is now made in Lohberg.
I have sent the brewery an email in the forlorn hope they may reply. Somewhere I had dismissed as a hobby but which it turns out is in fact commercial is Herzogsberg Bräu in Velburg. Although the four friends who brew there do so in their spare time, one of the number is a former brewer at Winkler Bräu in Lengenfeld. The beer can usually be bought from source on Saturdays but do call in advance to ensure they have beer.
Their weizen is only brewed in limited quantities. Mentioned here on a couple of occasions recently, I am now able to conform Das kleine Brauhaus in Straubing does in fact exist as a separate brewery. Bierführer Ostbayern has photographs of the mobile kettles emblazoned with the brewery name and goes on to explain around 40 brews are done each year.
The two beers are normally only available bottled and the suggested place to try them is the picturesque Zur Schönen Aussicht in Bogenberg. Paul Lockwood, Willi Reber. Schröttinger Bräu in Schrötting has closed as it just couldn't compete with the prices offered by the big boys. As long-suspected, Brauerei Weideneder in Tann no longer brews. In fact, their beers have been made elsewhere since ! Does anyone know anything about Zur Alten Brauerei in Belgern?
I understood it had closed or at least stopped brewing around nine years ago but I've recently spotted a couple of separate sources indicating it still brews. There's a new brewpub in Leipzig, albeit way out of the city centre in the south-western suburb of Hartmannsdorf. Zur Ratte makes a kellerbier and also offers brewing courses.
It is now called Brauhaus and supplies the pub of the same name at Augsburg's main station. Do not be fooled into believing the latter brews - the single kettle there is purely decorative.
The Bulzinger Brauerei in Bulzingen does indeed brew. The sole regular is Kellerbier but there is also an occasional Weizen, The beer is bottled at Adlerbrauerei in Hundersingen and can be bought from the brewery on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings It is also sold at Connys Getränkeinsel in nearby Spaichingen.
Andreas Pohl had confirmed his Biber Brauerei is indeed commercial. I have tidied-up the future breweries section and dropped the following proposed breweries which I believe have little to no chance of materialising: Berlin and Hamburg entries are now listed under the old boroughs as, frankly, those are all anyone refers to locally.
There is possibly a new opening to report in Euskirchen although I have my doubts - Biber Brauerei appears to be somewhere in between the hobby and commercial stages. I have emailed owner Andreas Pohl in the hope he can clarify the situation. I've been advised by Stefan Brütting of Goldenen Schwan in Erfurt that although Felsenkeller in Weimar supplies their day to day beers the equipment at the Golden Swan is still used for brewing seminars and trial brews, so don't be surprised to see it in use.
I hope the problems can be resolved - the location looks superb. Somewhere that has hitherto escaped my notice is Landgasthof Löwen in Obersasbach, near Achern. Daniel Köninger installed a brewery there in September last year. I had contacted them after a tip they were brewing again but was told no, the house beer came from Bavarian Festbeer Brewery.
Not being able to trace the latter I assumed this was just a rebadge or similar. However, I have now discovered the former Sonnenbrauerei has been bought by Carsten Raun, a Dane who organises Bavarian-style beer festivals around Europe.
Brewing resumed in late spring and although the beer is principally made for his festivals, it also supplies Sonne Expectation is annual output will reach to 1,hl. Harri Hurtig, Alexander Thamm. Camba Bavaria should soon be opening the Camba Old Factory in Gundelfingen, a large pub which will include a small brewery.
I've had confirmation from the Freilichtmuseum in Selbecke that the brewery is not currently in use. Do not be fooled by Brauhaus zu Coburg. To be fair, they make no claim to brew themselves - the beers come from Kulmbacher.
Hans-Adolf Knopp, mayor of Grasdorf and one of the men behind Schwarze Huhn has confirmed the beer is regularly available at local festivals and it can be considered commercial. The brewery itself is at the Richers family farm in the centre of the village. There are plans for a brewpub on the site of the former Braugold brewery in Erfurt. The rest of the land there will be redeveloped for housing. I have decided to add a page outlining all contract and cuckoo brewers I am aware of. This is likely to take some days.
If you believe I have missed any or think the information inaccurate, please feel free to enlighten me. As anticipated, Dorfbrauhaus in Amönau has indeed closed. The former tap is now a Greek restaurant and the brewing equipment is now in use at the Osterbach Brauerei in Gemünden. Happily, Hausbrauerei Armin Latzko is still going strong. Bastard Pop oder Bootsy genannt ist ein Mitte der er Jahre entstandenes musikalisches Phänomen, bei dem durch Sampling eine spezifische Form der Musikcollage aus Tonaufnahmen von Stücken verschiedener anderer Interpreten zusammengemischt wird.
Der Reiz des Mashups besteht dabei darin, dass meist Titel zu einem neuen gemixt werden, die unterschiedlichen Stilen, Genres, Milieus, Ensembleformen, Images usw. Mashups sind hierdurch Studien über Genregrenzen und was diese ausmacht bzw. Sie leben von einer Balance zwischen dem Aufdecken musikalischer Kongruenz zwischen den Vorlagen durch ihre Kombination und der gleichzeitigen kontextuellen Distanz zwischen diesen Vorlagen, aufgrund derer man nicht damit rechnet, dass ein solch effektives Funktionieren möglich ist.
Diese Ohrwürmer werden bisweilen auch mit einem aktuellen, tanzbaren Titel aus den Charts gemischt. Der Begriffsgebrauch ist ungenau und instabil. Der Ausdruck Mashup wird z. Nicht selten werden zugleich aufwendige Bastard-Pop-Videos erstellt und auf verschiedenen Videoportalen veröffentlicht, deren Grundlage meist Musikvideo -Material zu den im Mashup verarbeiteten Vorlagen ist.
Werden Vokalpartien mehrerer Vorlagen verarbeitet, ergeben sich zudem neue textliche Interaktionen, die oft wenig Sinn ergeben, manchmal aber im Zusammenspiel auch ganz neue Bedeutungen kreieren. Der Begriff Mashup wird darüber hinaus ebenso im Bereich von Software- und Websiteprogrammierung benutzt wie er auf Gebieten wie Fotografie oder Literatur in Erscheinung tritt.
