Bavaria Brauhaus Biere

The last century began with about two dozen breweries dispensing the sacred brew to thirsty Munich inhabitants. It ended with the “Big Six”
dominating the City’s suds scene. According to tradition during the Oktoberfest festival held annually across Bavaria you can only buy original Munich bier which is characterised by a long tradition, much experience in brewing and the strict adherence of the “Reinheitsgebot” (Bavarian Purity Requirements). Today at the Brauhaus we are delighted to stock and sell these 6 beautifully crafted biere.

Our biere are all rigorously and unequivocally Bavarian: fresh, tapped in the German style and served in original jugs. While you enjoy the full taste of a true bier made in Germany, delighting your palate, you will just have to close your eyes to feel about you the embrace of the Bavarian atmosphere and, reopening them, perhaps you will be surprised of not being in Germany for real. Come to discover our exclusive catalogue of Bavarian biere at the Brauhaus Glasgow.

Hofbräu

Everybody knows of the ‘Haus’ but without “Hofbräu” the bier, there can be no Hofbräuhaus. Hofbräu is recognised for its royal connections to Duke Wilhelm the 5th who founded the Hofbräuhaus and brewery in 1589. The Hofbräu brand bears a royal crown and a gold glowing liquid that depicts its regal roots and 16th century beginnings. The bier has a crisp finish but not overdone and the spicy hop bite balances with a sweetness left lingering on the palate.

Paulaner

A close second in our opinion as Munich’s best bier – Paulaner is also a monastic brew, fermenting itself info existing in the Nuedeck monastery in 1629. As a result of an unsuccessful complaint filed against the Paulaner monks to ban sales of their home-brewed bier; February 24th,1634 is a special date as it marks the official founding date of the Paulaner brewery. The highly skilled Master brewer Franz Xavier Zacherl put Paulaner on the map and the popularity of Paulaner has always extended beyond the city limits of Munich.

Augustinerbräu

Augustiner is renowned for brewing Munich’s best bier. As early as 1328, The Augustiner Brothers were brewing bier within the Augustinian monastery in Munich. With about 680 years of tradition, Augustinerbräu is the city’s oldest brewery and has survived many extensions without ever forgetting its philosophy or risking the quality of its bier. Augustinerbräu is mostly sweet with faint hints of honey and a soft bitterness on the aftertaste. Its pale yellow complexion and full white head is smooth and quaffable.

Hacker-Pschorr

This consolidation of two Munich breweries is really a throwback since Hackerbräu and Pschorrbräu were actually one and the same in the early 1800s. Once considered the king of Munich’s brewers, the Pschorr sons went their separate ways and divided the brewing business into Pschorr and Hacker wings. Both brothers prospered and so did their brands, becoming friendly rivals in the brewing world. However when tragedy struck, blood was thicker than… bier and the two breweries joined once again, hyphenating the brand to Hacker-Pschorr Bräu

Spatenbräu

The Spaten name stretches back to 1397 where records show the existence of a brewery owned by a Herr Spaeth who was busy producing his “Oberspathbräu”. Under ownership of perhaps one of the most famous brewing family Munich has ever produced- Gabriel Sedlmayr and his sons Josef and Gabriel II, the name was later modified to Spaten around 1807. Like the Pschorr brothers, the Sedlmayr siblings parted and began brewing competitive biere, however World War I brought back the united Spaten brand. Spatenbräu is a premium, bottom fermented golden lager with a supremely well balanced hop flavour.

Löwenbräu

The Löwenbräu brand has strong connections to its place-of-origin roots which date back to as early as 1324. Brewed on 17 Löwenbruge Street and served in the Zur Löwen pub… logically the brand adopted the Löwenbräu name. As the historical king of the bier world Löwenbräu translates fittingly to “lions brew”, which is illustrated through an iconic gold lion brand logo. Löwenbräu has just enough herbal hop bitterness and faint lemon sweetness to create a well-balanced and super easy drink.
