While not traditionally considered one of the great merchant houses, this Archendale-based house has gradually become more powerful over the past few years. For generations, the Carlsberg House primarily handled exports (livestock, timber) out of the Dalelands. However, beginning with the election of Kellan Conland (known to be a close ally of the Lowenbrau House), Dalelanders began to take a much more active role in the politics and economy of Shalomar. The Lowenbrau House was at the forefront of that movement, recognizing the potential of the Dalelands’ undeveloped natural resources. The Lowenbraus shrewdly capitalized on the humiliation of the Carlsberg House following the Election Scandal of 3552 and made serious inroads on the Carlsbergs’ holdings.
The Lowenbraus brew a malty, amber lager that has become wildly popular with the Criers and other hipsters in Sheene.
The Lowenbrau House is headed by Drenwen Lowenbrau, a middle-aged human woman who is said to have never married. She was a member of the Diplomatic Mission to the Glitter Cliffs and was publicly praised by the Hands of Order for her role in its success.
