Weihenstephan is the Bavarian state brewery with a bold claim as the world's oldest brew house.
Based in in the town of Freising, a few kilometres north of Munich, the current brewery is situated on the site of the former Weihenstephan Abbey which is thought to have been brewing since 1040. As a 'state brewery' it dates back to the early 19th century following the dissolution of the Abbey. The brewery produces a full range of typical German beers from Pilsner to Dunkel but our favourite remains their cloudy wheat beer.
