Dreher Brewery opens beer workshop

Dreher Breweries built a beer workshop, operating independently of its historic brewery, to serve as a creative recipe workshop as well as the home of a new Hungarian brand, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

The ANTL brand, focused on the hospitality industry, pays homage to its founder with its first two beers: Vienna Style Lager is a modern interpretation of the beer style that has earned brewery founder Antal Dreher the nickname ” Beer King “almost 200 years ago. , while the English Style Summer Ale recalls his study trip to England.

In Dreher’s neoclassical brewery, a single brew means hundreds of hectoliters of beer, while in the old keg-filling building where the new beer workshop is located, a brew is just a few hectoliters. The smaller size of the equipment and greater flexibility of the technology give the brewery team more freedom to experiment.

“Since its founding, the history of Brasseries Dreher has been one of continuous innovation. First of all, it used the Kőbánya cellar system and, only for the time, the artesian wells, to produce the lager invented by Antal Dreher. Then the early use of steam and cooling technologies, and later, for example, the pioneering introduction of glass bottling and aluminum drums. dynamic with the beer workshop and the ANTL brand, ”said Gábor Békefi, CEO of Dreher Breweries.

ANTL initially launches with two beers, with the types of beer changing several times a year.

“Our team has already had the opportunity to think more freely about new styles and recipes of beer, but we have always had to take into account the enormous size of the factory. The beer workshop opens up new dimensions of experimentation. We are going to introduce new beers. several times a year, which means continuous experimentation and development for the ANTL brand, ”added Máté Mihály, Innovation Brewer at Dreher Breweries, Head of the Beer Workshop.

During the launch period, ANTL beers will be available on tap in limited quantities at over 50 hotel outlets in and around Budapest.
