The court brewery is the pride of Freising. Here they started to brew the beer, which became known in the whole of Germany. The first high production run was during the reign of Bishop-Prince Albert, in 1160 on the Cathedral Hill. And although the beer was already brewed before that, 1040 is the official start date of its brewing in the city. In the XVII century the brewery got a new building on the Cathedral Hill. Now it is part of the seminary. And in the XVIII century, under a special decree it was allowed to brew also dark beer in addition to the light.
In the twentieth century the court brewery moved to Mainburger Strasse. Warehouses with the latest technology were built for its new premises. Famous beer varieties appeared at the brewery: Jägerbier -in 1970, Huber wheat beer -in 1976. A polar bear is pictured on the bottles of the latter.
In 2010, the brewery’s 850th anniversary was marked largely! The building in the Art Nouveau style (or jugenstil in German) was decorated with flags and banners, artists dressed in costumes walked in procession in the street in front of them and the beer flowed like water. Traditions and innovations are what matters in the famous brewery. To feel this, you need to participate in the degustation.
