Our Redemption Star
Synonymous with the craft and traditions of brewing, the six-point brewers star first appeared as far back in history as 1300, when brewers used it to adorn their barrels. In the 1500s, the Brewer’s Guild, one of the first trade guilds of Europe, adopted it as their insignia. The star was also hung outside breweries and used in many logos; it can still be widely seen across Bavaria adorning small craft breweries.
The brewer’s star was intended to symbolize purity. If a brewer attached it to his beer he was declaring it to be free of any impurities and additives. In folklore history, the six points of the star represented the six aspects of brewing most critical to purity: the water, the hops, the grain, the malt, the yeast and the brewer.
Whilst our ‘Redemption Star’ puts its own twist on the shape of the original brewer’s star it represents all these aspects. However we also like to think it acknowledges our personality and the care we put into everyone of our beers. Cheers!
