Long before wheat beers and lagers wetted the throats of Germans, the bottom-fermented dark beer was quenching the thirst of Munich residents. The first beer, which was served in the "Braune Hofbräuhaus", still satisfies to this day with its roasted, hoppy taste and the subtle malty finish.
Brewed with selected malts from barley and wheat, choice hops and is fermented with an especially cultured yeast. The origin dates back to 1589 and since then it has a distinctive place in the history of Hofbräuhaus München.
Its refreshing, bitter flavor and the alcohol content have made it famous worldwide. This is a bottom-fermented light “Münchner Bier” with character. This beer is the most famous of the products produced by Hofbräuhaus Munchen.
