A refreshing wheat beer characterized by its sparkling rich foam and fruit forward flavor.
Before there was Boardwalk and Park Place, monopoly existed in Bavaria.
Back in 1602 Munich’s first Hefe Weizen, Weissbier (aka Weizenbier), could only be brewed by ducal privilege. Hofbräuhaus relished this right for more than 200 years, thus creating a monopoly on Weissbier in Bavaria.
But even without a monopoly, Münchner Weisse is pretty darn special. We can’t think of anything more pleasurable than a thirst-quenching brew that tingles all the way down. Except maybe 5.1% abv. and a refreshing and fruity taste that can only come from being brewed by ancient tradition.
Our brewery – founded in 1589 by William V, Duke of Bavaria – has written Munich beer history and helped shape the city's beer culture. We are proud that brewing beer the Hofbräuhaus way for over 400 years has played a role in forming the heritage of our beautiful city.
The crowned HB Logo – a trademark owned by Staatliches Hofbräuhaus in München, which sells its beer under the name of Hofbräu München – is known the world over. In recent times the German beer market has undergone a consolidation process, and Hofbräu München which is in the possession of the Bavarian state, is one of the last two traditional Munich breweries still in Bavarian ownership. "Hofbräu, mein München" is a passionate declaration of our commitment to Munich, its people and the Bavarian way of life.
