One of Munich’s best known brewhouses, the Weisses Bräuhaus (Tal 7, 80331 Munich), the headquarters of Munich’s Schneider-Bräu-Dynasty since 1872, is set for a name change. The home of Blitzessen will soon officially become the Schneider Bräuhaus, as Schneider boss Georg Schneider VI told bild.de. The reason behind the new name is that there are more brewhouses named “Weisses” (white), and the name was not a protectable one.
Locals won’t have a problem with the new name because it has been in use since the Bräuhaus was first opened and the new name will be put into use gradually so tourists don’t get confused.
In other Weisses Bräuhaus news, beer prices will be raised starting January 2016. 0.5 litre of a Helles or Weißbier now cost 3.95 euros and will then cost 4.10. We can live with that.
