Brewery craft today and then

How was beer brewed in the past? The answer to this question can be found in the brewery museum in Altomünster. Once the brewery and malt house of the Kapplerbräu brewery - now a treasure trove of beer: historical brewing equipment and tools, such as a more than 200-year-old manual labeler, tell the story of beer brewing in a vivid way.

Anyone cycling along the Danube will eventually end up in Ingolstadt- the second largest city in Upper Bavaria. Ingolstadt lives and loves its traditions and, of course, Bavarian beer! The oldest consumer protection law still in force in the world was proclaimed here more than 500 years ago.

The German Hop Museum

Who actually came up with the idea of growing hops in the Hallertau and how are they harvested? Answers to these questions can be found in the German Hop Museum with films, a giant hop cone, photos and real hop-picking utensils.

Urban Chestnut Brewery and Au-Hallertau Castle Brewery

Breweries such as Urban Chestnut in Wolnzach prove that Upper Bavaria is not only the home of beer, but also a hotbed of beer innovation. Here, brewing expertise from the USA is combined with the knowledge of a local master brewer. Brewers who love and understand their craft can also be found at the Schlossbrauerei Au- Haltetau, where the best beer has been brewed for more than 400 years. Tip: Beer, history and exciting insights into the two breweries can be found on a brewery tour.

Airbräu - the airport brewery

A brewery in the airport? Located directly at Munich Airport, visitors from all over the world can fortify themselves after an exhausting flight in the "Airbräu". On schnitzel or suckling pig day, the freshly tapped and specially brewed beer tastes twice as good.

Pay a visit to the home of the popular snack cheese. Only here is the original recipe known - with a dash of beer.
