For centuries, wheat beer in Bavaria could only be brewed in royal breweries. By 1872, wheat beer had declined in popularity and, seeing an opportunity, royal brewer Georg Schneider purchased the brewing rights from the Bavarian King Ludwig II, rescuing the style from near extinction.

Over 140 years later, the brewery still uses his same recipe and open fermentation process.

Schneider is the oldest continually operating Weisse Beer brewery in the world.
