We are Rentsch
Brewers of Wind Powered Beer and Proud Supporters of the Beer Garden Life.
Inspired by German Tradition
Rentsch Brewery was founded by father and son David and Andrew Rentschler. The inspiration for opening a brewery began in Europe where Andrew was studying German. He also picked up the extracurricular activity of 'studying' biergartens, where he noticed that the focus was enjoying the quality of local craft beers. In addition, they provided a place for friends and family to gather and leisurely hang out and enjoy each others’ company. Andrew's family met him in Europe during a break in his studies, and he shared his concept with them. It was at a biergarten that the dream for Rentsch Brewery began.
Upon graduation from college, Andrew returned home to Georgetown, TX and took over his parent's garage where he built and developed a commercial-grade pilot brewing system and perfected recipes with brewing partner, Stefano Allianelli. Within a year the brewery was moved to its current location in our warehouse in Georgetown. Andrew and Stefano hand-built the coldroom, the taproom, and cashier stand. They also built bar tops and picnic tables with the help of family and friends. During this time they purchased a three and a half barrel brewing system. Rentsch Brewery opened its doors on August 29, 2015 with tremendous support from the community.
Rapid Growth and an Introduction to the Beergarden Life
High demand for our beer quickly exceeded our production capacity leading to an expansion of what you see today. We have doubled the brewery’s size, increased production capacity tenfold and added a state of the art canning line to bring Rentsch to you. Our pride and joy has been the addition of a beautiful new taproom and 5000 sqft beer garden. It was specially designed for all to come enjoy what beer garden life is all about. So come see for yourself!
Brewed with 100% Renewable Energy
Our rapid expansion presented itself as a perfect opportunity to live up to one of our core values of being an environmentally responsible business. We made special investments to ensure our brewery equipment is completely electric. Our power is generated from wind and solar farms in West Texas and the Panhandle, so we can proudly say that our energy consumption is 100% renewable.Learn More
