“Two friends bought the Hofmeister brand and set off to Bavaria to brew the best beer they possibly could”

The Bavarian job

We all dream of someday pulling off the perfect heist and in 2016 two plucky Brits did just that. When Spencer and Richard bought Hofmeister from Heineken they hit the road and headed for Germany in search of real gold. And they haven’t looked back since. Now Hofmeister is a proudly independent British company bringing UK beer lovers award-winning, world-class authentic Bavarian Beers… with a smile.

Brewed without compromise

People and time: you can’t make great beer without them. Set in the very heart of Bavaria, our beers are handcrafted by an independent fourth generation family brewery where attention to detail, integrity and an obvious commitment to quality is apparent in every sip of Hofmeister.


Bavaria might never have become the beer world capital it is today if not for its natural bounty - and we take full advantage. We only ever use the finest, locally sourced mineral water, hops from the famous Hallertau region and barley malted on-site at the brewery.


We believe passionately that time makes better beer. Our brewery holds the prestigious Slow Brew Seal, recognition of a commitment to following ancient Bavarian purity laws and slow brewing for up to seven weeks at 0°C for a clean and exceptionally balanced pint.

“Absolutely delicious so spot-on”


Exceptional taste

Our beers have been awarded a host of industry medals for quality. From crisp, refreshing Hofmeister Helles to our Weisse that has a rich body and notes of banana - when it comes to taste, nothing beats trying for yourself.
