Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh is Pennsylvania's first authentic German beer hall, modeled after the legendary Hofbräuhaus in Munich, Germany.
Founded in 1589 by the Duke Of Bavaria, Wilhelm V (1548-1626), the Hofbräuhaus am Platzl is one of Munich’s oldest beer halls. The beer quickly became world famous thanks in part to the famous Bavarian Beer Purity Law of 1516 that stated that only natural ingredients could be used in the brewing process.
Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh offers a fun and friendly atmosphere especially in the Bier Hall, which often features live music. There is also a quiet dining room for those who want to simply come and enjoy the delicious Bavarian fare. Many dishes are prepared with ingredients specially made for the Hofbräuhaus or imported from abroad. The Bier Garden view is of the waterfront with the Pittsburgh skyline as its backdrop.
The heritage of Hofbräuhaus is the beer. Over 500 years ago the first Hofbräuhaus beer was crafted. Hofbräuhaus has a brew master from Germany supervising the production of four varieties plus seasonal specialties of the authentic Hofbräuhaus beer. For those of us accustomed to American brews, Munich has developed a recipe for Hofbrau Light.
