forchheim A whole brewery for the home? This dream could now come true at the Eichhorn brewery’s online auction.

“A total of around 80 to 90 barrels are sold,” says David Hertl (32), the new master brewer at the Eichhorn brewery. “20 to 30 sets of tables, a complete bottling plant, three to four different brewing plants, four pallets of glasses, 3,000 to 4,000 mugs and the old tanks”.

The gem: an ancient truck, a vintage car from 1978, which the brewery used to transport beer. The auction is ideal for hobby brewers who want to become more and more professional when brewing.

Machines need maintenance

“A machine like that is like a woman, you have to cherish and care for her. It takes a little practice to be able to brew the ideal beer at home.” If you want to put together your own brewery from the inventory, you have to reckon with costs of around 30,000 to 40,000 euros.

The proceeds will be used to move and rebuild the Eichhorn brewery. The online auction will take place on Tuesday from 9 a.m.
