Weißbier and Munich go together like white sausage and mustard, pretzels and butter or dumpling and sauce. The city has a centuries-old beer culture and is the center of a region with an incomparably high concentration of breweries. Since 1912, the Karg wheat beer brewery has also contributed to the abundance of beer in Bavaria's capital.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the Karg brewery was still called the Hirschvogel wheat beer brewery. The premises previously housed a forge and were then adapted to the requirements of everyday brewing. Andreas Karg took over the brewery in 1912 and brought a lot of hard-working hands with him. In addition to his wife Rosina, the family consisted of five children who were happy to help and could always be found somewhere in the brewery. When the siblings had outgrown their infancy, their father was able to involve them in the day-to-day brewing business and prepare them for taking over the business. In 1960 the time had come and daughters Centa and Franziska and son Andreas took over the management of the brewery. Rosina's husband Franz Schubert not only gave the brewery family its current name, but also a successor: Franz Schubert Junior was succeeded by Victoria Schubert, with whom the fourth generation of the family now works in the brewery. They all share the love and passion for good wheat beer and are committed to producing delicious brews. With quality, tradition and taste in mind, Karg Weissbier has been brewing the finest wheat beer for more than 100 years.
If you want to take a look behind the scenes, you can do so in the open-air museum at Glentleiten. In the midst of a wonderful mountain panorama and on the picturesque Kochelsee, the restaurant not only offers a fantastic view, you can also see the beer production live on site. In the show brewery there are two brew kettles operated by the Karg brewery. Those who are curious can experience how the fine wheat beers are made and learn exciting facts about the brewing process from explanatory diagrams and information boards. The Glentleitner beer that is produced here is organic and can be tasted in the restaurant of the open-air museum. In addition to the show brewery, the Schubert family also offers beer seminars and beer tastings. If you want to enjoy very fresh beer, you have the opportunity to refill your beer directly in the show brewery every 1st Thursday of the month.
