In former times
The history of brewing in Grafing dates back to the first half of the 16th century and is attested in writing. Grafing's four original breweries: Walcherbräu, Kasperlbräu, Reiterbräu and Grandauerbräu often remained in family ownership for generations. In 1843, the Kasperlbräu was handed over to Korbinian Wild, a brewer's son from Aibling and namesake of today's Wildbräu. In 1857, Georg Schlederer, a private individual from Munich, acquired the Reiterbräu and, by marrying the Wildbräu daughter Amalie in 1892 and taking over the Heckerbräu, united three of the four Grafingen breweries under the name Wildbräu. In 1993, Grandauerbräu also became part of the family brewery.
Gregor Max Schlederer studied brewing and beverage technology at Weihenstephan and completed a traineeship at Anheuser-Busch before taking over the management of Wildbräu as the seventh generation at the beginning of 2018. Under his leadership, Wildbräu goes back to its roots and adopts the original coat of arms, the Wildbräu bear.
According to the motto "Wild and original Bavarian", we at the Wildbräu brewery and our 18 employees have been brewing the beer with the bear for over 400 years. For our beloved homeland, this is of course done in accordance with the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516.
Hands-on help with the twelve types of beer and four seasonal beers - no problem for brewer Gregor Schlederer and brewmaster Johannes Hartwig - preferably, of course, with the brewing directly at the lager tank.
See you soon, your brewer and brewmaster
