Lived history: The tradition at the Weißbräu Huber tavern is not limited to beer and the historic pictures on the wall. For decades, many associations (e.g. the Royalists Freising) and student organizations have shaped the history of our tavern. For example, the oldest continuous Students Meeting of the world has met at our tavern since 1892: The "Huber Stammtisch" of the Bavaria CC. Speaking of history...
The eventful history of the Weißbräu Huber tavern
1860: The wheat beer brewery was founded at the "Büchl" – the present location of our tavern – when Karl Stiegler, a brew master from the Freising Hofbrauhaus, acquired the privately owned estate across from the the Hackl brewery (in today's Old Town Gallery). But the family lost two sons within a short time (they drowned) and therefore gave up the brewery.
1897: The tavern tenant Xaver Huber from Palzing bought the brewery from the Grötsch family, which had taken over the brewery 16 years earlier. In 1899, Xaver Huber added another upper floor and enlarged the cellar and brewery. His son Joseph enlarged the brewery again and rebuilt the dining room and the additional room, modernizing them completely. But in 1936 he died in a motorcycle accident. After that, his father handed over the brewery to his second son Nikolaus Huber and made him general manager.
1976: The Freisinger Hofbräuhaus takes on the distribution of the Huber Weissbier. From then on, the beer was brewed only there, of course, always according to the original Huber recipe!
1999: The building, now former brewery, was taken over by the Wagner family and they completely rebuilt it as a tavern. It thus builds seamlessly on the tradition as a popular meeting place for guests from near and far. See for yourself... We look forward to meeting you!
