The Oldest Breweries in the World

The United States has only been around since the 1400s, but beer has been around for a lot longer.  Think about this – Christopher Columbus’s great grand parents weren’t even around for the first brewery that was born.  It’s amazing to think that beer has been around for this long, yet we still had to put up with “WAZZZZUP!!!!” to sell us beer.  Today, we are going to take a look at some of the oldest breweries in the world.  Keep in mind, this isn’t a complete list, and isn’t a doctoral dissertation.

Who would have guessed Germany has the two oldest breweries?  Oktoberfest is a German delight for a reason, you know.  There are debates weather Weltenburger is older than Weihenstephaner, since the original abbey is dated all the way back to 620.  I don’t think it really matters, because they are both incredibly old.  They have definitely gotten better with age, as they have won the World Beer Cup award multiple times for their ″Weltenburger Kloster Barock Dunkel″.  How can you go wrong having the best dunkel beer in the world?
