Wirtshaus Ayingers’ 15th Anniversary
We have a reason to celebrate! The Wirtshaus Ayingers on Platzl square will be 15 years old this summer and is therefore the youngest member of the Inselkammer family’s ensemble of businesses and an offshoot of the traditional Ayinger private brewery. In this magazine article we would like to briefly tell you the story of the brewery and the Inselkammer family before we inform you about what is being planned for the anniversary celebrations.
The beginnings of the Ayinger brewery
The Ayinger private brewery was founded in 1887 by Johann Liebhard. As he did not have any male descendants, it was August Zehentmaier, his eldest daughter’s husband, who continued to run the brewery after Liebhard’s death. Zehentmair also did not have a son and so the owner’s name changed once again after he passed away. His daughter and heir Maria Kreszenz married Franz Inselkammer in 1932.
Inselkammer – a family with history
A new era began with the entrepreneurial Inselkammer couple. The brewery, which was struggling after the war, was given a new lease of life and beer production continued to grow year after year until the eldest son Franz Junior started at the company in 1963. He took over the management of the company in 1986 after the death of Franz Inselkammer Senior. The private brewery continued to grow until it finally moved to the outskirts of Aying in 1999. One year later the Wirtshaus Ayingers opened on Platzl square to give even more people the pleasure of indulging in the outstanding Ayinger beer.
