Trumer Pils was introduced to the U.S. in 2004 when Trumer Brauerei Berkeley, the sister brewery to 400-year old Trumer Privatbrauerei in Salzburg, was built. Because a pilsner is one of the most delicate styles of beer, it was important that Trumer Pils be made locally in the U.S., instead of importing from Europe. Trumer Pils is a unique partnership of two family-owned companies: Privatbrauerei Josef Sigl in Salzburg and The Gambrinus Company in the U.S. Trumer Pils has received gold medals at the Great American Beer Festival, the World Beer Cup, the Australian International Beer Awards and the European Beer Star. Trumer Brauerei Berkeley is located at 1404 4th Street in Berkeley, Calif. and is open Monday through Friday and offers free brewery tours daily.
