|In 1634 the order of the Paulaner monks began
brewing beer in the Au, thereby laying the
foundation stone for today's Paulaner brewery.
Paulaner has now been producing the best of beers
for 375 years and is considered for the best of
brewing in Munich.
The Bavarian Purity Law of 1516 puts an end to
"experimenting". The ingredients permitted in beer
were specified and the importance of optimizing 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
Brother Barnabas, who managed the Paulaner brewery
from 1773. The Holy Father of Beer and his artistry, showed in the
"Salvator". This double bock which
filled one up and probably made one a little tipsy,
is drunk throughout the world today. It's
characteristics are strong and dark, not too sweet,
full-bodied, malty and unique. The worldwide
reputation of the Paulaner brewery began with the
export of Salvator to Greece, the Czech Republic and
Italy at the beginning of the 19th century.
New eras are dawning. With the discovery of the
yeast cell and invention of the refrigerator in the 19th century
characterized by a number of varieties, high
quality standards and globalization. In 2010, Paulaner sold a
total of 2.1 million hectoliters of beer and exported to around 70
countries. More than 670 employees work on the Nockherberg.
Each beer stein has a manufacturer date,
this date represents
the year in which the mold was run for that Brewery.
