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 Pils gives craft beer drinkers in the U.S. the chance to enjoy a fresh and classic German-Style Pilsner every day.

Brewing Trumer Pils

Brewing is the ultimate melding of art and science. With Trumer Pils we apply precision milling techniques to our barley malt, remove the husks to eliminate astringent bitterness and maximize smoothness, and gently swirl in noble hops for flavor and aroma. Cold fermentation and extended Krausening contribute breadth of character and effervescence. The result? A crisp, balanced, refreshing work of art.



Our team of brewers is led by German-trained Brewmaster, Lars Larson. After obsessing over the same beer for more than a decade, you could say he’s got this pilsner brewing thing down to a science.
