Ramstein from Jason Koontz on Vimeo.
Founded in 1994, the High Point Brewing Company is the first exclusive wheat beer
brewery in America. The founder and driving force of High Point is award-winning homebrewer, Greg Zaccardi. After working as a brewer in southern Germany, Greg returned to the US to open his brewery. His Ramstein beers are made with the same care and precision he learned in Germany. In fact, the wheat, barley, hops and yeast used in Ramstein are all imported directly from Bavaria.
Greg found a special brewer’s yeast used only by a small brewery in Bavaria. He was able
to get the brewery to let him use the special yeast exclusively at High Point. The unique, complex character of Ramstein beers is a result of this private yeast and of course, High Point’s careful and proper brewing methods.
The name Ramstein was adopted from a town in Germany with a large American population.
The town surrounds the U.S. Ramstein Air Force Base. High Point wanted the name of its
beers to reflect a marriage of German tradition and American innovation.
