Before establishing his brewery, Wasserman recruited renowned beer brewing masters and imported advanced equipment from Germany that allowed him to brew his beer automatically and produce a variety of different beers - from red ales to light lagers, aged and spiced beers.
These days, the brewery is open for a tasting tours pilot, and the brewery’s beer garden will also be inaugurated with events including dancing and live performances.
