In Paldau, Julia Schwinger has set up a small brewery in the cellar of her parents' house. She sells nine varieties under the "Schwannl Bräu" brand.
As a beer connoisseur, Julia Schwinger and her boyfriend David Hannl came up with the idea of starting their own first brewing experiments during their student days in Graz. Influenced above all by the ever-increasing popularity of craft beers. A mix of the two surnames was chosen as the brand name. And so the brand "Schwannl Bräu" was launched with the first variety "Werksbier".
