2003. Josef Sigl VII opens the second Trumer brewery in its 400-year history. Berkeley, California was chosen as the location, largely because the resource you need in the largest quantity in beer brewing is water. And for Trumer, the ingredients are everything. It turns out that Berkeley has water that is nearly identical to the water in Salzburg. This exceptionally soft water has less sediments and impurities, which affect a beer's taste. The brewery was built with the exact same attention to detail that the Sigl family has put into their beer throughout the years. The result is a true European pilsner brewed fresh on our shores.
