Rentsch Beer was founded by father and son David and Andrew Rentschler. The inspiration for opening a brewery began in Europe where Andrew was studying German. He also 'studied' biergartens, where he noticed that the focus was enjoying the quality of local craft beers. In addition, they provided a place for friends and family to gather and leisurely hang out and enjoy each others' company. Â Andrew's family met him in Europe during a break in his studies, and he shared his concept with them. It was at a biergarten that the dream for Rentsch Brewery began.
Upon graduation from college, Andrew returned home to Georgetown, Tx and took over his parent's garage where he built and developed a commercial-grade pilot brewing system and perfected recipes with brewing partner, Stefano Allianelli.
Within a year the brewery was moved to its current location in a warehouse in Georgetown. While waiting for state and federal licensing Andrew and Stefano hand-built the coldroom, the taproom, and cashier stand. They also built bar tops and picnic tables with the help of family and friends. During this time they were able to expand their brewing system to a seven barrel system.
Rentsch Brewery opened its doors on August 29, 2015 with tremendous support from the community. The brewery prides itself on being the first craft brewery in Georgetown, and an active part of the Georgetown community.
It is a family run operation; our small staff does everything from brewing to distributing to sales and marketing, all the way up to writing this very webpage you are reading right now.
