Telling my family's stories
This is the website for the brewery that the Muehlbauer family has operated for generations in a little town in the Cham region of Bavaria (near the Bohemian forest). I believe the earliest recorded owner of the brewery was in the 13th century, and is likely the Milwaukee Muehlbauer’s direct male ancestor. The brewery was handed to another son in the family, and Joseph’s father became a farmer (the family grew hops as well as brewed them). Joseph fled Bavaria in April 1886, and settled in Milwaukee, where he operated a tavern much like the one the family had in Arnschwang.
