For over 400 years, Trumer Pils has been brewed to the exact standards of the “Reinheitsgebot”, or the Austrian Beer Purity Law. We keep the ingredients to just water, malt, hops, and yeast and ferment it for 3 weeks to create such a simply satisfying and delicious brew.
The Trumer Brewery in Berkeley was established in 2004 as a sister brewery to the centuries-old Trumer Brauerei in Salzburg, Austria. Combining the heritage of European brewing with the energy and passion of American craft brewing in Berkeley, Trumer gives craft beer drinkers in the U.S. the chance to enjoy a fresh and classic German-Style Pilsner every day.
After opening a brewery in Berkeley, Trumer Pils became widely available in the San Francisco Bay Area in addition to its native Austria, the result of a partnership between Privatbrauerei Josef Sigl and The Gambrinus Company. All ingredients used in Berkeley are shipped from Austria with the exception of the water which is from the High Sierras. Hops used in the recipe include Czech Saaz, German Hallertau Perle, and Spalt Select. Trumer is aged six weeks prior to bottling.

For years, small and independent U.S. craft breweries have been turning the beer world upside down. Their ability to take risks, innovate flavors and build better communities has made the U.S. the craft beer capital of the world.
To proudly display that independent spirit, the Brewers Association created a symbol to unify U.S. craft breweries and those who want to support them. This certified mark gives beer lovers an easy way to identify independent craft beer.
