Ramstein Brewery & High Point Brewing Company
Craft brewery specializing in German wheat beer made with Bavarian yeast, offering tours & tastings.
Founded in 1996, High Point Brewing Company is America’s premier brewer of German-style Lagers and Wheat Beers. The founder and driving force of Ramstein Beer is Greg Zaccardi, an award-winning brewer who trained and brewed professionally in southern Germany. After immersing himself in German brewing culture and technique, Greg returned to the United States to brew Ramstein Beer. Ramstein Beers are brewed with the same care and precision that Greg learned in Germany. In fact, the malt, hops and yeast used to make Ramstein Beer are imported directly from Bavaria. Greg found a special brewer’s yeast used only by a small brewery in Bavaria and he convinced the brewery to let him use the special yeast for Ramstein Beer. The unique complex character of Ramstein Beer is a result of this private yeast and of course, our careful and proper brewing methods. Our Beer was named after the town of Ramstein in Germany, which has a large American population and is the home of the Ramstein U.S. Air Force Base. Ramstein Beers reflect the marriage of German tradition and American innovation.
