The Hofmeister Brewing Company is a young, fast-growing company with big ambition. We think the time is right for a Bavarian brewed lager, winner of multiple prestigious awards due to the quality of ingredients and brewing process, to take its place on the bars/in the fridges of premium hospitality venues up and down the country. Two friends, Spencer and Richard, bought the Hofmeister brand from Heineken, relaunched it as a super-premium imported Bavarian craft lager in 2017 and it was then voted, by IWSC, as the Best Lager in the World the very next year!
