In 1842, the Lower Bavarian brewmaster Josef Groll developed the beer in Pilsen, Czech Republic, which was to quickly conquer the whole world under the name of his birthplace. In contrast to many northern German beers of this brewing style, our Bavarian Pils is milder, more balanced, more drinkable.
It is a true “Braumeisterbier” – a taste experience for connoisseurs who love a balanced hop note.
We have set up our own storage cellar for our Pilsner, precisely tailored to its needs, where it can ferment in peace until it is perfect – elegant and bright, with a subtle malt body.
Fresh, sparkling, with a light, slender body. The exclusive use of the best Hallertau aroma hops creates a wonderfully young, fresh bitter note.

What’s behind it?
Our new labels
Developed in Pilsen, Czech Republic, by Lower Bavarian brewmaster Josef Groll, the Pilsner has already had a long journey in its genesis. Today, the Pilsner is once again in Lower Bavarian hands – in the hands of our brewmaster Matthias Sailer.
The keys next to our brewery coat of arms have two meanings: first, it is an allusion to the Pilsen city coat of arms. On the other hand, with the heart-shaped handles and the “H” for Hofbräuhaus in the key bit, they can be understood as the “keys to the heart” at the Hofbräuhaus Traunstein. After all, Pilsner is the favorite variety of our brewmasters and the Sailer family.
Another indication of the Sailer family’s love for our Bavarian Pils is this tool. In fact, the name Sailer comes from the craft of ropemakers, who used such winches to make rope. Therefore, such a rope winch is also found in the Sailer family coat of arms.
Since the Pils features our premium Hallertau aromatic hops, which thrive excellently within energized lands, we have immortalized them on the label.
