A real municipality, in the legal sense. The shares can only be traded within the 149 houses within the historic city walls!
The brewmaster is Hannes Leitner. His beers are scrutinized as closely by the communards as they are by the jurors of the European Beer Star. They sent awards to Freistadt five times. Leitner's principle of success: "Stick to your last. Do what you know how to do." And, "Always put a lot of feeling into the brew pan.".
