... mia san mia
...this is us / we are us
Dahoam is a uniquely Bavarian word that expresses more of a feeling, than a place. Often translated as "at home," it's less about the address and more about the feeling of being "at home:" "cozy"..."with loved ones"..."welcomed." 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 & brewer's mash paddle represent our brewing and cooking focus; the hops represent our commitment to sustainability and local ingredients (yes we grow our own hops), and the Edelweiss signifies our country 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 while learning together.
