The monastery of Weltenburg was founded at the beginning of the 7th century by the abbot Eustasius, was turned into a Benedictine monastery by Saint Boniface, and was raised to an abbey by Duke Tassilo. The first references to a brewery in the Weltenburg Monastery are to be found in the Weltenburg Nekrologium, in which it states that the master brewer died. Another scientifically recognized source is a recorded enty in the “Libellus Traditionum”, which is over 900 years old, and which dates from shortly before or after 1050.
The beer is matured in the rock cellar of the oldest monastery brewery in the world.
