GERMAN BEER

Hacker-Pschorr

The name Hacker-Pschorr dates back to the marriage of Teresia Hacker and Joseph Pschorr. Under the couple’s leadership, Hacker-Pschorr advanced to become Munich’s leading major brewery in the 18th century.

Doing business in a sustainable and environmental manner combined with courage and innovation, that is “the heaven of the Bavarians,” a Hacker-Pschorr tradition since 1417.

The Paulaner Brewery has been in existence for nearly 400 years and is still the premiere brewery of Bavaria today.  None of the other breweries that are allowed to pour at the festival sell as much as Paulaner.

In 1634 the order of the Paulaner monks began brewing beer in the Au, laying the foundation stone for today’s Paulaner brewery. The name of the Paulaner brewery refers to the order of friars that resided in Neuhauser Straße in Munich who were part of the order of Saint Francis of Paola.  Brewing became a way of life for the Monks. Reinheitsgebot the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516 puts an end to “experimenting”. The ingredients permitted in beer were specified and the importance of optimising the process was brought to the fore. The Bavarian Purity Law is the oldest food law whereby Duke Wilhelm IV of Bavaria passed a law which stipulated that only barley, hops, water and yeast may be used to brew beer.

Weizen-Radler Non-Alcoholic

This mix is in a class of its own – combining the great taste of Paulaner Hefe-Weizen with natural effervescent lemonade in a non-alcoholic alternative for refreshingly fruity yet malty taste.

Oktoberfest at the River will be serving this iconic German liqueur, invented in 1934 near Brunswick, Germany.
