Brewery lorries in an authentic 19th century malthouse!
This unique museum is situated in Romedenne in a former 19th century brewery-malthouse, an authentic setting where more than 20 vehicles and 70 themed displays are exhibited.
You will be able to admire a series of old trucks especially equipped to transport beer. Among them are a Berna (1943), a Borgward (1954), a Lloyd (1956) and some Saurers. Other vehicles are currently being renovated and will soon be added to the collection.
The various display cabinets, which will inform you about the different types (electricity/steam/petrol), makes and advertisement of the trucks etc.
Why a museum dedicated solely to brewery trucks?
Until 1930, brewers constituted the largest market of lorry manufacturers. During that time, there were breweries in every town and village.
But, the decrease of the number of breweries lead to the disappearance of many local manufacturers. This museum pays homage to these forgotten occupations.
