The Hofbräuhaus: Both Traditional and Modern!
Regionality from Bavaria, Craftsmanship, Quality and Sustainability
Hofbräuhaus values our farmers, gardeners, suppliers and craftsmen!
Strictly Regional Produce
The wholesome lettuces and vegetables are grown near Munich by master gardener Willi Böck from Vaterstetten. Short transport routes are key: from the region for the region!
Quality Ingredients from Bavaria
We even source our seasonal menu ingredients from Bavaria: our beef comes from the region´s Oberland, or hilly upland, our pork comes from farms in the southwhose pigs graze on deep straw.
They couldn´t be any more local! The best ingredients from our own neighborhood
The flour for our homemade breads and baked goods is milled in the Hofbräuhaus Kunstmühle next door.
Energy efficiency and economical use of resources
We use state-of-the-art, energy-saving kitchen appliances, which significantly lower our water and energy consumption.
These energy savings, combined with our use of only regional suppliers, significantly lessen reduce our carbon footprint.
Our craft Hofbräu beer is stored in state-of-the-art tank facilities.
Careful storage preserves quality and helps to save energy.
We have four large, horizontal stainless steel tanks, which can be efficiently cleaned. The large quantity held by the tanks enables us to minimize the number of trips beer tanker trucks make, which also helps to minimize delivery traffic in Munich´s medieval Old Town.
Both Traditional and Modern!
Responsible use of Produce!
Freshly-prepared not only tastes best, it also means fewer cold storage units warehouses. This is how we use electricity responsibly, we need fewer cooling machines and therefore less coolant.
Best-before dates play no role for us because we cook with only the freshest of ingredients.
We prefer to keep our warehouse half-empty.
Bavarian “just in time”
We cook fresh on demand!
Our experienced hosts and chefs carefully calculate exactly how much they need of each ingredient
Our dishes are prepared according to the season, weather, special events or national holidays.
The rule is: Only as much as is needed and as fresh as possible!
We order and cook on demand, as freshly as possible!
Consumption Should Closely Follow Production.
Packaging of our Dishes
We primarily use recyclable packaging
We use stainless steel trays (Gastro Norm GN) for our potato salad, homemade sauces, soups, dumplings and baked goods.
We only use disposable packaging where necessary for reasons of quality and hygiene, e.g. for our homemade white sausages or roast pork.
The Hofbräuhaus is socially responsible
e.g. Christmas for the Homeless on Christmas Eve (held in the Festsaal with the Catholic Men’s Welfare Association) or our support of Petra Reiter’s “bunte Münchner Kindl “ (we collect money and school supplies for needy Munich schoolchildren).
Many of our employees have been with the Hofbräuhaus for decades.
We consider close cooperation and mutual appreciation integral to authentic Bavarian Hospitality.
