Maisels Brewery & Cooper's Museum
Maisels Brewery & Cooper's Museum, Bayreuth

The most extensive brewery museum in the world, listed in the Guinness Book of Records, Maisel’s Brewery and Cooperage Museum showcases the exciting world of beer and beer-making in the original brewery building. Visitors can see a collection of more than 3,300 beer glasses and jugs and 400 rare enamel signs from various breweries and beer brands, as well as a delightfully presented collection of beer mats. With a complete brewing room dating from 1887 with steam engines and brewing equipment, a hop chamber, a barrel cellar and a bottling room, visitors can explore the various stages of the brewing process in this fully preserved brewery. Learn the secrets of a perfect pint in the cavernous Lagerkeller (storage cellars), then after the tour, enjoy a free Maisel’s Weisse wheat beer in the Alte Abfüllerei bar. Guided tours are the only way to see the museum. Group and multilingual tours on request.
