World's oldest brewery carries on 1,000 years of tradition
Long before the Americans declared independence, centuries before Columbus discovered the new world and before Gutenberg invented movable type, Germans were already perfecting the art of making beer. Even from a distance, the Weihenstephan brewery dominates the area. Perched atop Naehrberg Hill in Freising, a small town just north of Munich, the brewery was originally a Benedictine monastery founded in 740 AD by a monk named Korbinian.
