The stand of Baran Bryggeri at Bergen Ølfestival 2013, manned by its founders, Ali Mostofi (headbrewer) and Lasse André Raa (daily manager).
Ali Mostofi, of Persian ancestry, is the owner of Baran Café in Bergen, he had started playing with homebrewing when he got to know the young student Lasse André Raa. Together they decided to go commercial with their brewing interest and on September 1, 2011, they founded Baran Bryggeri. Baran is persian for "rain", a suitable name for a brewery located in Fana on the outskirts of Bergen - the rain capital of Norway. 12 months later, a 500 liter microbrewery had been installed and Baran Bryggeri was launched.
