Benediktiner Weissbräu

Ettal, Germany


The brewery was established at Ettal Monastery in 1609. Alongside agriculture, the monastery brewery is the oldest operation of the Ettal Benedictine Abbey. Beer has been brewed here on a continuous basis for more than 400 years. To date, Benediktiner wheat beer has been brewed for the German and Austrian market solely in Ettal. For some of the export markets, the production is done under the supervision of the monastery at the Licher Privatbrauerei, which is rich in tradition.

Klosterbetriebe Ettal and the Bitburger Braugruppe have set up Benediktiner Weißbräu GmbH as a joint venture.
