Hofbrau began in Bavaria, a state in southern Germany, back in 1589. The brewery was founded by William V the Arch Duke of Bavaria. During this period of German history, beer brewing was strictly controlled by king, dukes and royal courts. It was common for kings and nobility to own breweries and pass decries that favor their breweries and ban production of competing styles.
Hofbrau is owed by the Bavarian state and the Bavarian state government appoints the leadership of the company. The official name is Staatliches Hofbrauhaus in Munchen. This translates from German to State Owned Hofbrauhaus in Munich . The logo is an HB with a gold crown. The gold crown is a nod to the royal founding of the brand. Aside from producing world class beers, HB is famous for their beer hall in the city of Munich, Hofbrauhaus am Platzl Muchich. This beer hall is a top attraction in Munich and has hosted countless famous patrons over the centuries including Mozart, John F. Kennedy, and Louis Armstrong to name a few. After the close of World War II, American GIs were station in and around Bavaria. This introduced HB to American’s and many beer steins bearing the HB logo were brought back to the USA. Since then, the HB brand has greatly expanded and there are HB beer halls and restaurants in eight US cities.
