The Meteor Brewery is located in Hochfelden, a small town in the Ackerland, a hilly agricultural area stretching between Strasbourg and Saverne.
Jean Klein installed the brewery at its current location in 1640. The Metzger family, (brewers from Strasbourg) bought thie brewery in 1898, this family then married in to the Haag family (brewers from Ingwiller) and the brewery is renamed "Metzger Haag". The brewery is still run today by this same family. Then in 1925 the brewery was renamed "Meteor" a more promising name on the French market

Sometimes this brand update is done by the new owners after a brewery has been sold, other times just to give the brand a fresh new look on the ever growing market.
Below are some notes to help identify some of these changes and an aid to reference the year of the glass.
