Weihenstephan is known for being the oldest brewery in the world. In year 725 the Benediktiner Monestary was founded on the Weihenstephaner hilltop. The Here the monks invented the brewing of beer and in 1040 the Klosterbrauerei Weihenstephan was officially opened. During the next 1000 years the monastery went throught many difficult times. Weihenstephan was ran over and destroyed many times amongst others by the Swedes, French and Austrians. Besides that, the monestary brurnt burnt completely down completely four times. A Even the heavy earthquake in 1348 and three plague epedemics did not make the monks give up. ! Unfortunately, in 1803 the monestery was closed and all the interiors and property rights went into the hands of the state of Bavaria. However, the brewery business was under the rule of the Royal Staatsgut Schleißheim (Munich) and could therefore continue. In 1852 the Bavarian Brewery School moved from Schleißheim to Weihenstephan where the art of brewing is still tought. The location is today the centre of the brewing technology in Germany and worlwide.
The beer garden has 360 seats in the self service -serviced area, 10 100 seats on the serviced terrace and 80 seats in the beer garden Salett'l (, an outside roofed seating area). Large ??Linde?? broad-leafed trees completely shade the self-serviced area while the serviced tables have sun-umbrellas.
Apart from beeing the oldest brewery in the world, Weihenstephan is also the birthplace of the "Obazda", a Bavarian cheese specialty. Katharina Eisenreich, the Innkeeper of the beer garden between 1920 until 1958, began serving homemade Obazda to the guests, which soon thereafter became a traditional Bavarian dish that is sold in every beer garden today (reciepe). Industrial production of Obazda, including export products, is still only done in Bavaria.
Bräustüberl Weihenstephan offers ??13?? types besides the helles (lager) a wide selection of Weißbier (wheat-beer). A Maß Helles costs €5.80and a half-litle Weißbier costs €3.10.
