Brewery founder Johann Liebhard

In 1876 the father of the Ayinger Brewery, Johann Liebhard, took over the agricultural and forestry estate "Zum Pfleger" with tavern and butcher's shop, which had been family property since circa 1810. His wife Maria, a postmaster's daughter from Markt Schwaben, was, as were all women of the brewing generations, the central pillar of support in the running of the business.
In the economic high spirits of the 1870's following Germany's victory over France, Johann Liebhard applied his acute business acumen in deciding to found his own brewery. This was not so unusual at the time, which is why there were some 6,000 breweries in Bavaria alone in the 1880's. Of these, approximately 650 are still in operation today.
