The story of Hofbräu München began with a culinary challenge more than 400 years ago: Since he found the beer brewed in his court in Munich to be of poor taste and quality, William V, Duke of Bavaria, founded the Hofbräuhaus in 1589 – the birthplace of the brewery and gastronomy. Today, the Hofbräuhaus Bavarian State Brewery in Munich is one of two still Bavarian-run traditional Munich breweries.
BREWERY TOURS – THE WORLD OF BREWING UP CLOSE
Look over the shoulders of our master brewers. Take in the intense scent of the original wort. Taste a freshly draught Hofbräu beer directly from the beer tank. To really experience the brewing art of Hofbräu München up close and personal, book a guided tour through our traditional brewery: The tour participants will learn interesting facts about our beer and its processing, experience the raw materials of brewing, visit the brewhouse and fermentation cellar and learn how filling and storage are done. Afterwards, we invite the participants to enjoy a hearty Bavarian snack with ‘Leberkäse’ (traditional meatloaf) or ‘Weißwürsten’ (white sausages) in the ‘Bierstüberl’ (brewpub). To accommodate our visitors and their individual needs, advance registration for the brewery tour is required.
