Dahoam1516 Logo

Our Name, Logo &Mission

Dahoam is a uniquely Bavarian word that expresses more of a  feeling, than a place.  Yes, it means " at home," but it's less about the address and more about being "at home"..."cozy"..."with loved ones"..." feeling safe."  Dahoam is the place you come back to; where you want to be.  There's even a saying for this feeling: und do bin i dahoam...and there I'm at home.
1516 has two different reasons:  it's the year the Bavarian Reinhetisgebot ([Beer] Purity Law) was enacted, so an important date for anyone teaching classic Bavarian brewing, and it's our street number (totally coincidental).
In our logo, the house comes from Dahoam; the fork & brew paddle represent our brewing and cooking focus; the hops represent our commitment to local ingredients (yes we grow our own hops), and the Edelweiss signifies our alpine roots and source of knowledge.
Our Mission is to have fun and spread the joy and hearty fare of Bavaria, no passport required.  Our classes and experiences are all in English, though you may hear some German or Bavarian being spoken.  We keep things simple, hands-on and focused on having fun.
