Brewery "Weisses Bräuhaus G. Schneider & Sohn GmbH"

Weißes Bräuhaus

To the south-east, you can see a long building constructed in 1607. The brewery, Weisses Bräuhaus Georg Schneider und Sohn, was known as the Prince Elector’s White Brewery under the reign of Duke Maximilian I of Bavaria (1598-1651). The Hefeweizen (wheat beer) was brewed exclusively in the Prince Elector Breweries in Munich and Kelheim. The international reputation of this beer, brewed in the oldest wheat beer brewery on Earth, has made Kelheim known well beyond its borders.
