9 Historie 1500: von Degenbergs establish the first recorded Weissbier brewery in Schwarzach. 1602: The Wittelsbacher empire takes over exclusive rights. Breweries are built across Bavaria including one in Munich. 1602 through 1700s: Weissbier flourishes. Late 1700s-1810: Popularity declines and breweries close. 1855: Georg Schneider takes over the lease of the Weisses Hofbrauhaus. 1872: Schneider moves and negotiates the rights to brew Weissbier for himself and the public. Weissbier makes a modest comeback. 1960-2008: Production grows from 3% to 9% of the German market and sees popularity grow across the globe.
