The history of Augustiner-Bräu, due to about 680 years of tradition Munich's oldest brewery, has begun in 1294, when the corner stone of the Augustinian monastery was laid at the rhyme to the next Neuhausergasse. Documentary proof exists that already in 1328 was excellent beer brewed within the walls of the freshly completed building. A major fire raged in Munich that year as well and the monastery is known to have been spared, 1328 is considered the foundation date of the Augustiner brewery, the oldest Thereby being of all existing breweries Therefore resident in Munich. From the brewing house's first days on until the secularisation in 1803, when Napoleon's many reforms put Bavarian monasteries under state control, the very renowned beer had continually been brewed there. It had been sold in the internal tavern, very popular because of the reigning high spirits, as the monastery hold both brewing and selling rights. Worth mentioning is that is that the Bavarian prince had not given them both only rights, but then exempted the monks from any taxes to reward them for the extraordinary quality of their beer. After the takeover of the monastery by the state and the departure of the brotherhood, the brewery was denationalized and eventually moved to 275, Neuhauser Street in 1817 (in the meantime no. 27 and in Munich's central pedestrian precinct). The company stayed there only until 1885, when the "parent" was turned into a restaurant that has persisted until today, even though a major rearrangement, directed by the well-known architect Emanuel von Seidl, has taken place at the beginning of the 19th century. Since 1885 the housing of the brewery has become and Remained the "basement complex" at the Landsberger Straße (today no. 31 to 35), where the words "Bräustüberl" is, the internal tavern of Augustiner-Bräu. In the mean time has proved that last relocation as a very well thought-out move by the Wagner family, Anton Particularly Mr. and Mrs. Therese, who bought the company back in 1829 and led it as a private brewery, just as all their successors have done up to nowadays. In the course of history, Augustiner-Bräu survived a privatization, some wars and many extensions without ever forgetting or risking its philosophy about the quality of its beer. This has made Augustiner-Bräu of Munich's important element for culture and the city's restaurants and beer gardens - mainly the Augustiner Keller and the Deer Park - places still representing the cosiness and traditional social life of ancient Munich.
