BRLO was founded in 2014 by Katharina Kurz, Christian Laase and Michael Lembke in Berlin and brews and distributes craft beer.



A Franconian, a Berliner and a Mecklenburger founded the Berlin beer brand BRLO in 2014. Two of them - Katharina Kurz and Christian Laase - already knew each other from their studies. Master brewer Michael Lembke is the third person in the group who shared the vision and has been the mastermind of BRLO beers since the beginning. The BRLO team was only really complete in 2016, when Ben Pommer joined the founding crew and since then has been responsible for the culinary concept of BRLO gastronomy with his unmistakable passion, and is now driving BRLO's expansion as Managing Director. 

Michael Lembke



While BRLO started out renting brewing capacity at friendly breweries, as its popularity grew, so did its desire to have its own location. Because we at BRLO think: Beer needs a home.

In 2016, the time had finally come: construction of the BRLO BRWHOUSE began on a brownfield site in the middle of Kreuzberg and, when completed, will house the first BRLO brewery. This is where all BRLO beers will be brewed and bottled and kegged from now on. The finished brewery combines the best technology with a modular and distinctive BRLO design.
The completion is to this day one of the most beautiful moments for brewmaster, Michael Lembke.



The BRLO BRWHOUSE opens its doors in 2017 in the middle of Berlin at Gleisdreieck and offers a home made of 38 converted overseas containers. It is home to the company's own brewery and gastronomy with a beer garden under the management of Ben Pommer.

The BRLO BRWHOUSE is Germany's first vegetable-focused brewery gastronomy, with regional and high-quality meat as a side dish. Brewery tours in their own microbrewery are a must.

The location has won awards not only for its architecture, but above all for its gastronomic concept. The BRWHOUSE has been listed in the Gault & Millau since 2018.



With BRLO CHICKEN&BEER, our exquisite offshoot opened in 2018 in the world-famous KaDeWe, the Kaufhaus des Westens, in Berlin. In the delicatessen department, we offer the popular BRLO beer range, together with a chicken grill.

Just as in the BRLO BRWHOUSE, the focus in KaDeWe is on the regionality and sustainability of the raw materials and ingredients used. That's why only Kikok corn-fed chickens from sustainable farms are grilled here.

With BRLO CHICKEN & BEER, our delicious offshoot was opened in the world famous KaDeWe, the department store of West Berlin. In the space, we offer the popular BRLO beer range together with a chicken grill, but just like in BRLO BRWHOUSE, the focus in KaDeWe is on the regionality and sustainability of the raw materials and ingredients used. That's why only Kikok corn chickens from sustainable farming are served.
