The finest malt from Bavarian malt houses, the purest water from our own mountain spring on the Traunsteiner Hochberg, and finally, flavour hops from our own hop fields in the Holledau. It goes without saying that HofbräuhausTraunstein strictly observes the Bavarian Beer Purity Law of 1516. Our beer is known to excel:Since taking gold in the 1975 world record for eight beers, HofbräuhausTraunstein has been awarded over 100 gold and silver medals by the DLG (the German Agricultural Society) as well as the gold European Beer Star. In 1982 HofbräuhausTraunstein became the first brewery in the world to offer draught weissbier. Yet the highest award is the praise of our customers, beer lovers and connoisseurs.

“These awards make us very proud.
Our team works on the quality of its beer round the clock
in order to constantly ensure this high standard of quality.
We combine skilful craftsmanship with a high level of innovation.”
Brewer Maximilian Sailer
