“The Bier From Here!”

This is where it all started in 1800 by Dennis’s great great grandfather when he founded Frankenbreu, Tanna.  This is a picture of the original facility. However no brewery exists there today. Dennis Wehrmann comes from a family with a real brewing history. Born in Nurnberg Germany in the midst of Bavaria he grew up in an area surrounded by several historic breweries. However not just the area influenced his decision to become a brew master, you can tell the love for brewing beer must be inherited. Beginning with his grandfather who owned the brewery Franken Braeu in Tanna Germany, his mom has a degree as a brewery lab technician and the majority of his uncles being either brew masters or in some form involved in the brewing business. It goes all the way back to his Great Grandfather Schaubert, who is the fine gentlemen in our logo, being a brewer back in 1800 where all kegs where made of wood and beer was delivered by horse carriage. At the age of 12, Dennis started spending his summer breaks working for a local brewery. After finishing high school, he started as a trainee at the Neumarkter Lammsbrau while attending Brewer School in Karlstadt. Upon graduating Dennis started brewing for the Altstadhof in Nurenberg, a small brew pub in the castle area of Bavaria where beer is still made the same way it was in the late 18th century. He attended the Doemens Brewmasterschool in Munich and graduated in 1999 with a Masters Degree. Soon after, he made the decision of moving to the U.S. with his wife where he spent 4 year working for Two Rows until the first step was taken of fulfilling a long life dream of opening his own brewery Franconia Brewing Company.

The tour happens every Saturday at 11am. It's the only tour, it only happens at 11am, and it's only $5. Prost!
