Weihenstephaner Brewery, world's oldest brewery

Weihenstephaner Brewery, world's oldest brewery


Freising, Germany (DE)
The Weihenstephan Brewery can trace its roots at the abbey to the year 768, as a document from that year refers to a hop garden in the area paying a tithe to the monastery. A brewery was actually licensed by the City of Freising in 1040, and that is the founding date claimed by today's modern brewery. The brewery thus has a credible claim to being the oldest working brewery in the world.
