Hofbräuhaus in Las Vegas has a great atmosphere, great beer, average food BUT it is not “authentic” ethnic food, all Germans know this is not real German. Here is the history behind Hofbräuhaus in Munich, Germany… The Hofbräuhaus (Munich) was founded in 1589 by the Duke of Bavaria, Wilhelm V. It is one of Munich’s oldest beer halls. It was originally founded as the brewery to the old Royal Residence, which at that time was situated just around the corner from where the beer hall stands today. The beer quickly became world famous thanks to the first brewer, Heimeran Pongratz, and the famous “Bavarian Beer Purity Law” of 1516 that stated that only natural ingredients could be used in the brewing process.
