Brauhaus Gusswerk

Brauhaus Gusswerk in Hof bei Salzburg is the organic beer specialist here in the City of Mozart. Since it was founded in 2006, Salzburg brewmaster Reinhold Barta has focused on the use of sustainable ingredients and bio-dynamic brewing methods in compliance with Demeter guidelines.

This restaurant is subjected to a demanding evaluation process and is honoured as "Preferred Salzburg Beer Culture Establishment".

Organic beers as a brand

Brauhaus Gusswerk stands for organic beers of the highest quality. Quality which founder and brewmaster Reinhold Barta keeps a close eye on in every step of the brewing process. His beers are manufactured using traditional processes and without resorting to synthetic additives. So gently, that the valuable vitamins, minerals and trace elements are preserved. And that’s something you can clearly taste!

Reinhold Barta and his brewing philosophy

The founding of this brewery on the grounds of the “Gusswerk” marked the beginning of a success story for Salzburg brewmaster Reinhold Barta. Previously employed at renowned breweries both in Austria and abroad, in 2006 he took the big step and went into business for himself. His philosophy: Brew organic beers mainly with Austrian ingredients from sustainable agriculture. And he has remained true to this passion, even after the brewery moved to Hof bei Salzburg in 2013.
