Try Munich’s finest royal brew

Founded in 1589 by William V Duke of Bavaria, Hofbräu München, one of Munich’s oldest beer halls has written Munich’s 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 world-wide. In recent times, the German beer market has undergone a consolidation process, and Hofbräu München, located in Bavaria, 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.

1. Hofbräu Original (330ml & 500ml)
More than any other, Hofbräu Original embodies the special atmosphere of the beer-making capital of Munich and exports it to the four corners of the globe.

It’s refreshing, bitter flavour and alcoholic content of around 5.1 per cent volume has made it famous worldwide. A Munich beer with character.

Type: Bottom-fermented, light “Münchner Bier”®

2. Hofbräu Schwarz Weisse (500ml)
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 with an alcoholic content of 5.1 per cent by volume.

Type: Top-fermented, dark Weissbier, aka Weizenbier (from Weizen = wheat)

3. Hofbräu Munchner Weisse (500ml)
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 5.1per cent volume, it’s a pure, refreshing enjoyment.

4. Hofbräu Dunkel (500ml)
Dark beer existed in Bavaria long before light beer. This was the first type of beer to be brewed at Hofbräuhaus when it was founded.

Today, when beer-lovers all over the world talk about dark beer, they usually mean a Munich style beer.

Today, Hofbräu Dunkel – the archetypal Bavarian beer – is still as popular as ever.

With its alcoholic content of around 5.5 per cent volume and its spicy taste, it’s a refreshing beer that suits all kinds of occasion. A beer in the traditional Munich style!
