This limited edition beer stein was made to celebrate the 425th anniversary of the Hofbräuhaus (HB) brewery in Munich, Germany. The front features a large pewter medallion with the HB crown logo and text Hofbräuhaus München Seit (since) 1589. A beer maiden with HB branded mugs frothing over with beer rests on a golden laurel. Two plaques honor Wilhelm IV Herzog von Bayern (4th Duke of Bavaria), founder of the German purity law (Begruender des bayerischen Reinheitsgebotes) and Wilhelm V Herzog von Bayern (5th Duke of Bavaria), founder of the Hofbräuhaus in Munich (Gruender des Münchner Hofbräuhauses). The left side shows a scene of the Hofbraeuhaus beer hall and the right depicts the HB building in Munich both framed by hops and wheat.
The Legend Celebrates 425 Years
In 2016 the Hofbrauhaus Brewery can arguably be considered the most famous brewery worldwide. Despite being the largest tourist attraction in Southern Germany, the HB has opened up locations throughout the United States, and their logo is recognized almost instantly worldwide.
What better way to commemorate the 425 year anniversary of this beer-brewing giant than with this limited edition, hand painted ornamental stein that is perfect for any stein aficionado’s collection of beer drinkware.

The stein’s artwork depicts a scene of the Hofbrauhaus in Munich, Germany. The focal points of the mug are the two plaques honoring both Gruender des Münchner Hofbräuhauses (the founder of the Hofbrauhaus Brewery) and Wilhelm IV Herzog von Bayern (the creator of the German Purity Law of 1516).
You will notice that for added decoration and style, a beer maiden has been strategically placed holding two liter beer mugs that are overflowing with everyone’s favorite frothy, golden, nectar of the Gods.
