It was in 1160, under the Freising Prince Bishop Albert I of Harthausen, that the brewery on the Domberg was first mentioned in documents. In the course of secularization, the Hofbrauhaus became the property of the Bavarian electress Maria Leopoldine. She bequeathed it to her son Aloys von Arco-Stepperg. After the count’s death in 1891, his daughter Sophie von Moy de Sons took over the management of the brewery. She had the new building constructed at its present location. The “new” Hofbrauhaus Freising consists of an elaborately structured central building and several outbuildings. The brewery was designed between 1911 and 1912 by Theodor Ganzenmüller in the Art Nouveau style. Under the supervision of the brewing scientist and professor at the Weihenstephan Academy, Germany’s most modern brewery at the time was built here. Since December 1998, the Hofbrauhaus has been owned by the Bavarian counts of Toerring-Jettenbach. The Toerring beers are now also brewed at the Hofbrauhaus.
