What is the one thing you'd like to tell visitors to the Guild's website?

I’m a blogger with an interest in home-brewing and historic beers.

What you can offer as a writer/beer lover?

Expertise in researching historic beers, ranging from their general history and genesis to historic ingredients and brewing processes, including practical knowledge how to reproduce approximations of historic beers on a small scale. My native German language skills have helped me decipher the histories and recipes of over 20 old German beer types, many of which are extinct.

Pieces of work by Andreas:

  • Historic German and Austrian Beers for the Home Brewer

    German beer has a good reputation throughout the world. In this book, you will discover a world of German beer culture that goes beyond pale lager beers. Learn about the history of 22 classic German and Austrian beer styles and brew them yourself at home using historically accurate, authentic recipes and brewing methods.

    Divided into four categories – Bavarian beers, German white beers, German brown beers, and Austrian beers – this book gives a detailed introduction into the history of German beer and how it was brewed centuries ago, from Bavarian lager beer and Weissbier to Broyhan, Kottbusser Bier, Berliner Braunbier, Mannheimer Braunbier, Carinthian Stone Beer and more.

    This book was written for intermediate and experienced homebrewers who are comfortable with brewing and want to explore classic and lesser known German beer styles, as well as beer history geeks who want to experience a side of German and Austrian beer culture that has not been discovered yet by the craft beer world.
