The Klaus Story

Klaus Brewing Company was founded by a local group of family and friends led by passionate brewer Thomas Lemke. Focused on bringing the under-served German-style beers to a wide range of consumers, from beer aficionados to new converts alike. We chose the name Klaus because we wanted a strong traditional German name. The name's meaning is "The People’s Victory". We feel being able to offer people the ability to experience great locally crafted beer in a welcoming environment is truly a victory for everyone.
