The Hofbräu München Brewery – founded in 1589 by William V, Duke of Bavaria – has written Munich beer history and helped shape the city’s beer culture. They are proud that brewing beer the “Hofbräuhaus way” for over 400 years has played a role in forming the heritage of this beautiful city.

Light beer or dark? With Weissbier, it’s all a question of taste! If you prefer a Weissbier with a mild, aromatic flavour, Hofbräu Schwarze Weisse is the right choice for you.
This dark variant on Hofbräu Weissbier is refreshment in a deliciously mild form – yeasty and malty, and has got an alcoholic content of 5,1% by volume.
Type: Top-fermented, dark Weissbier, aka Weizenbier
Münchner Weisse “Hefe Weizen”
Once upon a time, Weissbier could only be brewed by ducal privilege. Hofbräuhaus enjoyed this exclusive right for nearly 200 years, thus holding a monopoly on Weissbier in Bavaria.
But even without a monopoly, Münchner Weisse is a really special kind of beer. What could be more pleasurable than quenching your thirst with a deliciously yeasty Weissbier, and savouring the tingling, fizzy sensation in your mouth? With an alcoholic content of around 5,1% volume, it’s pure, refreshing enjoyment.
Type: Top-fermented Weissbier, aka Weizenbier (from Weizen = wheat)
