Pioneering craft beer producer Katharina Kurz is recharging Germany’s beer brewing industry with BRLO, a Berlin-based craft beer brand making creative and accessible beers appealing to all palates. Committed to introducing Germans to the great variety of craft beer and building a sustainable brand, she has led BRLO to become one of the most prominent craft beers in Germany in less than three years. While on fellowship, Kurz learned from pioneers in the U.S. about how to integrate a sustainability strategy into all aspects of a business from its inception. She intends to introduce collaboration to the craft beer industry by creating an open-source knowledge exchange platform where other craft brewers can contribute and share experiences with other independent companies from the food and beverage markets.
