Here is additional info on Freigeist provided by Stammtisch.
Freigeist was originally created as the higher-capacity offshoot of Cologne’s revolutionary and extremely tiny brewpub, Braustelle. Led by co-founder and historical beer fanatic Sebastian Sauer, Freigeist strives to break the stylistic chains of the modern mainstream German brewing industry by reviving and updating the country’s unique, regional beer styles, many of which disappeared only a few decades ago. At a time when the global beer revolution seemed to have been passing Germany by, Freigeist has been the principal flag-bearer for re-establishing the country as a major force in creative brewing. Its beers are at once challenging, in the modern craft beer style, and remarkably drinkable, per old German tradition.
