KolbenkunstCraft Beer, Stuttgart
After much deliberation and thought we have settled on a final name for our brewery. For us this name has many layers to it.
KolbenThe word Kolben has a trifold meaning. In Schwäbisch Germany (southern countryside) Kolben has an older meaning for bottle of beer. The word in standard German means piston, which only seems fitting as we are based in the car capital of Germany (Stuttgart). Finally the scientific side, Erlenmeyer Kolben. This is the type of flask we use in order to propogate and grow the wonderful yeasties that make the beers we all know and love!
KunstThe word Kunst in German means art. We like to think of what we do as a form of art. We feel as though this word represents what all craft breweries are trying to achieve, using unique ingredients and creative recipes to make beer that stands out and exceeds expectations. Another aspect of Kunst is that we plan to support the talent of our local artists here in Stuttgart to create our labeling. In doing this we hope to collaborate with every type of artist, from the student artists to the freelancers and street artists.
We are planning to open our doors and begin large production in the early fall. We cannot wait to share our beer with the local Stuttgart community. Prost!
