The Original Brew of Bavarian Kings!
When William V, Duke of Bavaria, set up his court brewery (Hofbräuhaus) in 1589, little did he realize he was laying the foundations for the world-famous Hofbräuhaus brand. The four hundred plus years of experience we have gathered since find their expression in the premium beer we brew. Local quality raw materials and state-of-the-art brewing ensure highly drinkable beers. In our view, tradition and progress are not necessarily opposites
but rather factors that we seek to reconcile in the interests of our continued dynamic development. This approach distinguishes our company, and it distinguishes our beer.
As expressed by our slogan “The Original Brew of Bavarian Kings”, Hofbräu beer was created by royal decree for the people of Munich and Bavaria. Today it is appreciated all over the world.
