Weihenstephan is known for being the oldest brewery in the world. In year 725 the Benediktiner Monestary Monastery was founded on the Weihenstephaner hilltop. 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 through many difficult times. Weihenstephan was ran over and destroyed amongst others by the Swedes, French and Austrians. Besides that, the monestary monastery burnt completely down four times. Even the heavy earthquake in 1348 and three plague epedemics epidemics did not make the monks give up! Unfortunately, in 1803 the monestery monastery was closed and all the interiors and property rights went into the hands of the state State of Bavaria. However, the brewery business was under the rule control of the Royal Staatsgut Schleißheim (district of Munich) and could therefore continue. In 1852 the Bavarian Brewery School moved from Schleißheim to Weihenstephan where the art of brewing is still toughttaught. The Today, the location is today the centre of the brewing technology in Germany and worlwidethe world.
The beer garden has 360 seats in the self-serviced area, 100 seats on the serviced terrace and 80 seats in the beer garden Salett'l, an outside roofed seating area. Large broad-leafed trees completely shade the self-serviced area while the serviced tables have are shaded by sun-umbrellas.
Apart from beeing the oldest brewery in the world, Weihenstephan is 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. Industrial production of Obazda, including export products, is still only done in Bavaria.
