WMF Outlet and Brewery Tour
on June 20th, 2009

Dear members and friends,

we would like to invite you to a shopping experience at the WMF outlet store Fischhalle, followed by a brewery tour of the Kaiser - Kumpf-Brewery in Geislingen an der Steige.

The Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik (WMF) is synonymous for one of the oldest silverware and glass manufacturers in the world. In 1912, they opened the 'Fischhalle' to provide their associates with fresh fish, which was, back during these times, extremely important for Geislingen's people feeding their families during World War I. By the end of the Golden Twenties, the fish selling was stopped, and WMF used the Fischhalle to sell 2A products with minor (mostly invisible) scratches at extremely reasonable prices. Fischhalle quickly became an El Dorado for shoppers from all over the world, who understand the value of purchasing 2A quality products of WMF directly from the source. During the last years, more and more outlet stores opened, including Lindt Chocolate, Gardena, and Esprit Home, providing excellent outlet shopping around the WMF Fischhalle.

After your shopping experience, we'll visit one of Geislingen's old beer breweries 'The Kaiser Brauerei Kumpf.' Learn all about how beer is manufactured during the 1.5-hour tour, and enjoy the beer tasting directly in the brau house.

The tour will end in the nearby Restaurant 'Stern' with an excellent buffet dinner. And as a special treat for the German American Club 1948 Stuttgart, it's a honour for the Kaiser Brewery to invite our whole group for free beer and mineral water during dinner! Brewery tour, beer tasting, and dinner totals for 12 Euros per person. Exact change would be greatly appreciated.
