Paul Higgins is an American living in Munich for many years. His passion for craft beer and brewing started in the pioneering days of the craft beer movement in America. In his approach to brewing, Paul combines an engineer's precision with the adventurous nature of an alpinist to create well-balanced beers bursting with fruity aroma and flavor.
Established in March 2018, the brewery is located in the basement of a former bakery in Munich's traditional brewing neighborhood of Maxvorstadt. Our "Craft Bier Brauerei" known as "The Keller" has evolved into a nano brewery with capacity for 150L production and room to grow.
Higgins Ale Works specializes in American style craft beer – that is, handmade IPAs, Pale Ales and Cream Ales brewed in small batches. Our earliest brews are now our signature ales: Secret Idaho NE Pale Ale and Eclipse Black IPA. We will continue to brew these and rotate other IPAs while we introduce new styles and collaboration brews.
We sell our ales in 750ml Crowlers unique resealable cans from Crowler Nation that are optimal for sharing and can be reused. Note: Crowlers are temporarily out of stock but 330 ml bottles are available.
Higgins Ale Works beers are on tap in Munich at Hop Dog, Frisches Bier, Meisterstück, and Tap House, Get Higgins to go at Ambar Bistro, and Die Bierothek or directly from the brewery.
