Promberg

... and Landhotel Hoisl-Bräu

Promberg is mentioned first in a tax book of the monastary of Benediktbeuern for the period 1279 to 1294. It had been a so-called ‘Schwaige’, a kind of stock yard belonging to the monastery. The owner’s name Hansel Pronberger can be found in the tax books from 1487. After the yard was taken over by somebody called Matheis (Hoisl) Pronberg in 1679, the name ‘Hoisl’ stayed as yard name. Over the course of time, ‘Pronberg’ changed to ‘Promberg’, which later became part of Penzberg.

Die Gaststätte Hoisl-Bräu in seiner Anfangszeit

On October 26th, 1829, the farmer of ‚Hoisl‘, Josef Baur, was granted the right to serve beer. In 1864, the restaurant at the Hoisl property had been authorized as ‘Tafernwirtschaft’. In 1884, Josef Baur (III) developed a brown beer brewery on this property, which was named after the yard name ‘Hoisl-Bräu’.

In 1935, Therese and Josef Günthner took over the company from Rosa Baur. The ‘Hoisl’-brewery stopped the production of beer in the 1960s. In 1970, the yard’s daughter, Maria Günthner, married Fritz Gattinger, who both committed themselves with passion to the continuation of the restaurant. In 1983/1984, the restaurant area in the ground floor had been renovated.
