Weltenburg

Weltenburger Monastery was founded at the beginning of the 7th century by Abbot Eustasius; it was transformed into a Benedictine monastery by St. Boniface and elevated to the status of the monastery by Duke Tassilo. Weltenburger, the oldest monastery in Bavaria, became the missionary centre of this region. The first indicators for the existence of a brewery in Weltenburg Monastery can be found in the Weltenburg necrology, which states that in 1035 the Master Brewer died. A second scientific source is a protocol in the over 900-year old "Libellus Traditionum" from around the year 1050.
