Since 1763, we, the Speidel families, have been running our family-owned business. We want to use our strength for many generations to come: Preserving the tradition of warm hospitality, changeable and growing with the demands of time, here in this place, in the wonderful landscape of the Swabian Alb, which we love with all our hearts.
The natural change of the time has left its traces in our house: The brewery inn was fundamentally renovated in 1970 and guest rooms were added, at that time with a swimming pool heated by brewery cooling water. In 1978, the brewery had to cease operations. The main focus of our activity was then on the pub, which became a popular eating place.
When in 1990 the renewal of the brewing tradition was on the agenda, it quickly became clear that the empty brewery buildings should be revived. They characterize the village of Ödenwaldstetten and give it a unique silhouette that is visible from afar here on the Alb. Preserving this silhouette was and is a great concern for us, because for us, preserving the visible structure is just as much a part of protecting our homeland as preserving the landscape.
In 2005 the hotel annex was built. The formal language of the structure and the materials of the exterior facade are taken from the basic elements of village, Swabian architecture and thus remind us of the farms that once stood on this site. In 2008, again in the fallow rooms, new meeting rooms were set up, which have not lost the original brewing character despite the change of use in terms of content.
Generation after generation, we make it possible for our guests to feel at home, to spend pleasurable days or hours in our house and to appreciate the beauty of the area. As "Taste the South of Baden-Württemberg" innkeepers, we have been using products from the region in our kitchen with great success for over 10 years. In addition to the short procurement routes, the benefit lies in the support of producers in the region. From the Alb for the Alb. Whether Hohenstein cheese, Alb buffalo, Meidelstetten lentils or Ehestetter mushrooms, each of these products serves to preserve the region from which we benefit so much.
We know that our environment is our greatest potential. Therefore, it is our concern to further strengthen the awareness for active environmental protection and careful, responsible use of resources in setting the course for future generations. With the implementation of the environmental management GreenSign we pursue a constant improvement of the measures for environmental protection and a consistent implementation of all goals and plans.
In our brewery, we work strictly according to the German Purity Law, which allows us to use only a few, selected and natural raw materials for the production of the product "beer". Symbolically we want to transfer this purity law to all parts of our company and give it the following content:
The management of the Brauerei Gasthof Lamm GmbH, in particular Mrs. Tina Speidel, is responsible for operational environmental protection.
We undertake to permanently control and improve our performance for environmental protection in annual internal audits. If necessary, the environmental policy will be adapted to the current conditions. Furthermore, we commit ourselves to comply with all relevant legal regulations, relevant environmental laws and corresponding regulations.
