The Andechs monastery brewery is one of the last real monastery breweries that has been run by a lively religious community to this day, completely independent of any group.
The Benedictines of the St.Boniface Abbey in Munich and Andechs represent a special monastic brewing tradition. In this way the beers can mature into a “ pleasure for body and soul “.

The Benedictines in Andechs have been looking after and welcoming pilgrims since 1455. To this day the monastery brewery is committed to sustainable growth and designed to preserve the monastic identity.
Andechs monastery beers combine the centuries-old Benedictine brewing tradition on the Holy Mountain of Bavaria with the most modern brewing technology.
100.000 hectoliters of beer are annually brewed at the food of the Holy Mountain in Andechs.
