G. Schneider & Sohn is a Bavarian brewery company founded in 1872 by Georg Schneider I and his son of the same name, after they acquired the Weisses Brauhaus in Munich, the oldest wheat beer brewery in the city. In 1927 the owners, who to this day are descendants of Georg Schneider I, expanded their brewing operations into Kelheim and Straubing. After the breweries in Munich were destroyed in 1944 by allied bombing, the entire production was relocated to Kelheim.
The entire product line consists of wheat beers, top-fermented, bottle or keg conditioned. The brewing wheat comes from the upper Altmühltal, lower Bavaria, and Upper Palatinate regions. The malting barley is grown exclusively by the Growers Association for Quality Brewing Barley, grown in the Kelheim and Riedenburg areas. Hallertau hops are used to give the beers their bittering and aromatic properties.
