Virtual Brewery – Real Beer
Virtual brewery??? We don’t own a brewery but we are producing real beer!
How’s that working? We are using the equipment of several partner breweries in Austria for our brews. Our goal is to produce a large variety of highly aromatic, exciting, creative and novel beers in at our friend’s breweries using our own recipes including sometimes unique ingredients. As other „breweries“ don’t tell you where their beer is made, we are fully transparent. You will find our partners at every beerlabel. We brew our beer with all natural ingredients. If we add special things like tea, petals, spices or fruits, then they never come from concentrate or extracts.
Why is INDEPENDENT the new CRAFT?
The kraken as logo stands for freedom, independence and flexibility. His arms are pushing him forward. They symbolise our brewing network we’ve built and the huge variety of beers we are brewing. The eyepatch shows that we brew what we want. The only thing we care about is the Codex Alimentarius Austriacus. The Austrian book where is fixed what is allowed to use for brewing beer.
Be a part of the beerrevolution. We have the finger on the pulse of time, are independent, urban and the most creative brewery in Austria. Live the future in beer with us right now! The revolution for independent taste from independent breweries for independent people!
We brew beer off the mainstream commonly called Craft Beer.
Craft Beer formerly was the name for beer from small breweries who really crafted those beers by hand. Nowadays lots of those breweries have grown to large companies. So for us “Craft Beer” should meanwhile be used for beer brewed with spirit, focused on aromatics, from independent breweries. Because of the current shopping tour of XL-Industrial Breweries on international craft breweries, we want to be seen as independent brewery and not the same like the camouflaged craft breweries operated by industrial big beer companies.
Craft is dead, long live Indie Beer!
Founded 2015 in Vienna, Austria.
As a virtual brewery we have a network of partnerbreweries to have enough flexibility in brewing that much different beer with different batch sizes. Lot of brewpartners are a lot of work for us but a huge advantage is that we can select different brewing equipement for what we want to brew.
Next Level Brewing means huge variety and exciting beers focused on aromatics. We brew easy drinking Pale Ales, Foodpairing beers and beers for absolute nerds.
We are focused on international beer styles that aren’t well known by Austrians and creating beers the world hasn’t tasted. At 2016 Meiningers International Craft Beer Award in Germany we won our first PLATIN Medal with our Lemon Thyme – Freestyle Gose!
At our first attempt at the Austrian Beer Challenge in 2016 we have won several medals!
Lemon Thyme – WINNER Category Spicebeer!
Five O’Clock – WINNER Category IPA!
Local Hero – 2nd Place Category American Ales!
That’s Next Level Brewing!

Next Level Brewing was founded by two enthusiastic homebrewers on a mission to bring highly aromatic, unique beer into the world. They want to show that beer can be more than cheap booze. Focused on creating beer by aromatics they sometimes get really creative with their ingredients. Both founders are Beersommeliers and know each other from the Viennese Homebrewscene.
Beer whisperer Johannes Grohs is Diplom-Beersommelier and a typical lateral thinker. Formerly working in the building industry he has enough distance to traditional brewing, ingredients or techniques. Beside the recipe developement process the founders do together Johannes is responsible for marketing and the economic parts thanks to his master degree in business management.
Alexander Beinhauer is a typical Hop Head, Beersommelier and multiple winner of the Austrian Homebrew Championship. He studied chemistry and has a master degree in biotechnology. Therefore he is responsible to achieve the high aromatic quality standards Next Level Brewing stands for.
