ATELIER VRAI was founded by Nico Döring in 2016 (known as ATELIER DER BRAUKÜNSTE) We started at Castle Romrod with a nano brewing system, due high demand for our beers we switched to gypsy brewing. Since 2017 we are brewing in Bamberg at Brauhaus Binkert, a family owned brewery with a modern 15 HL System. Since 2021 we also brewing at Glaab´s Bräu in Seligenstadt. Untypically for Gypsies we have our own canning line together with our friends from Blech.Brut Brewing.
We are focused on typical beergeek styles like big hazy ipas and have recently launched a barrel aged program. We have a very good reputation in Germany (rated as No.2 brewery on untappd, our triple IPAs are leading the beer toplist) and got different awards at international craftbeer contests.
For us, craft beer is a cultural movement that is all about enjoyment, high-quality and special raw materials, creativity, diversity, fair dealing, sustainability, exceptional design and people with passion. We love art, often paired with biting sarcasm or irony. We have a soft spot for special words or new word creations and interesting packaging. We let all this flow into the design of our cans. We always release our beers in series that have a certain motto and consist of 5 different beers. We love to search special photos or playing with special Coatings, scent or scratch paints on our labels.
