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.
