"The art of good taste"



In 1987, Klaus Peter Vetter founded his brewery in the famous Steingasse of Heidelberg - a restaurant in the middle of the old town, located in a short distance from the "Old Bridge". The project of the own brewery had begun with a private passion: traveling to the traditional beer breweries and the enjoyment of Bavarian hospitality. An example of the young company was therefore the famous Andechs monastery, the Munich Oktoberfest and many special features from small Bavarian brewery farms.

The whole family Vetter was mobilized, built and designed the rustic guest-room. together. However, the centerpiece of all the campaigns was the brewhouse, which was 10 hectoliters in length, and the legendary Kaspar Schulz from Bamberg built it. In October 1987 the first Heidelberg brewery was finally opened under the name Vetter's Alt Heidelberger Brauhaus.

The ever-increasing international tourism brings more and more visitors to historic Heidelberg, whose individual or organized program is often visited by the cozy brewery. Vetter's Braumeister Eric Rosen is already part of the brewery's inventory: he takes care of the production of our beers and the fact that everything is handmade.

Vetter Familie

Meanwhile, Michael Vetter, the son of the Heidelberg brewery chef, is continuing the tradition of the brewery. After extensive refurbishments in anniversary year 2017, he also continues to brew finest beers such as Vetter's Helles and Vetter’s dark wheat beer. Above all, his team continues to develop new tastes for the future beer lovers.

The Steingasse

During a city walk through Heidelberg's old town, a relaxing break at the Steingasse on the way to the "Alte Brücke" or the "Heiliggeistkirche" is exactly the right thing to do. As soon as the sun shines, you will be sitting outside at Heidelberg. The Mediterranean flair tempt you to eat and drink in the open air and to enjoy company in cozy surroundings.
