Georg Schneider & Sohn

The Schneider brewery was established in 1872 when Georg Schneider purchased the right to brew wheat beer from King Ludwig II.  Up to that point wheat beer could only be brewed by the Bavarian royal family.  He purchased and brewed the brauhaus in Munich, and the Weisses Brauhaus in Kelheim. This second brewery has been used to brew wheat beer since 1607 and is therefore the oldest continually operating Weisse Beer brewery in the world.
