Hildebrand von Kitscher, the owner of the Grafing estate, had the brewery and the adjoining tavern repaired after a fire in 1536. This is where the proven brewing history begins – so beer has been brewed in Grafing for 485 years.
At the end of the century, more private breweries settled around the market square. Jörg Grandauer’s family from the Leitzach Valley has been there since 1590. Jakob Reiter and Hans Dosch also join. The breweries not only shape the town center and public life – some brewers are real benefactors for the city, even mayors are among them. They promote the places of social life and allow Grafing to flourish.
In 1619, Duke Maximilian I finally had the manorial brewery entered in the brewery register. After all, from now on all breweries are in good shape. Finally, in the 19th century, there were very big changes. In just 100 years, four breweries will be merged step by step into one.
