Over 140 years ago, young master brewer August Kuentzmann Damm emigrated from Alsace with his wife
Melanie, fleeing the Franco-Prussian War. The journey took them to the Mediterranean coast where
they settled down to make their dream come true: brewing beer. They set up their own brewery and
created a beer that was adapted to the Mediterranean climate. Lighter than central European beers
more suited to cold climates, we know it as the Mediterranean lager beer.
