Widlwuchs Brauwerk from Hamburg
Wildwuchs is a family business and Hamburg's first brewery for organic craft beer! Their craft beers brewed in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg stand for variety of taste and quality: Only the best Craft Beer for Hamburg!
Brewer and founder Fiete, whose portrait adorns every single Wildwuchs bottle by the way, is a Hamburg boy through and through. After completing his training and master's degree in brewing in Rostock and Berlin respectively, he was initially drawn to the wider world, to Spain and France.
But Hamburg has never let go of Fiete. Not least because his family and friends have always kept him rooted in the city. Hamburg is simply home. And so his own brewery naturally had to be built in the city on the Elbe.
In 2014, the time had come. At that time, the first brewery was still located in Bleckede, southeast of Hamburg. But the desire to move to the Hamburg metropolitan area with the complete production in order to supply the city with the freshest beer was there from the very beginning. Nevertheless, it took until 2018 before Wildwuchs was able to open its doors in Wilhelmsburg. That's because the search for a suitable property turned out to be more difficult than expected.
But the wait and the exhausting search were worth it: Fiete has found a new home with Wildwuchs. And not only for brewhouse and storage tanks, but also for a small factory outlet and taproom! There you can get the freshest and latest Wildwuchs beers directly from the barrel - and if you're lucky, brewmaster Fiete himself will tap you his creations and provide you with background information and stories about his beers.
Organic quality you can taste
Wildwuchs are brewing organic beer out of conviction. Ecologically responsible and sustainable action are two of the brewery's central maxims. Hops and malt of the best organic quality come from German producers. The brewery has also established its own small hop plantation in Hamburg-Finkenwerder.
The beer should come to you without detours as far as possible. That's why Wildwuchs concentrates primarily on the local market. Why? Because this keeps delivery distances short and the beer arrives fresh on the shelves. Craft Beer from Hamburg for Hamburg. Wildwuchs also supports the local gastronomy. The diversity of the Wildwuchs portfolio is impressive:
- Pilsner (Fastmoker)
- IPA (Mucki Hop)
- Non-alcoholic Bitter (Große Freiheit)
- Wit (Sutsche)
- Helles (Schlankes)
- Bock (Bock O'Range)
- Coffee Ale (Wachmoker)
Plus some special brews, like early 2021 with an IPA made with rescued bread (because it was no longer for sale) from an organic bakery. Or a light smoked beer only available in summer called "Alt Kanzler" - a tribute to Hamburg's Helmut Schmidt.
Beers by Wildwuchs are also part of our Craft Beer From Hamburg package!
