Talk:Staatliches Hofbräuhaus in München

There are some pretty dubious statements in the article. For one it claimed that the beer hall used to display a baby photo of Adolf Hitler and referenced a website that made no mention of said photo and another where a journalist was shown a baby photo of Hitler by a tour guide whilst on a Third Reich tour of Munich. Whoever added the statement about the photo obviously misunderstood the Washington Post article. From the same article comes that claim that 'Some of the first violent attacks on Jews took place at the Hofbräuhaus' eh? What about the previous 2,000 years of persecution? Or enslavement by Egypt, or Babylon? Maybe they meant the first attacks by the Nazi party on Jews - the referenced article claims so but there is no other supporting evidence. The birthplace of the NSDAP's violent anti-Semitism? Surely that would be a famous fact, researched and widely documented? Nope. Per1892 (talk) 11:08, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

The Washington Post and NY Times are credible sources. The long and tragic history of persecution against Jews isn't discussed in the article, rather those that came with the Nazi party which used the Hofbräuhaus as a location for some of their meetings. --Bobak (talk) 05:35, 11 November 2009 (UTC)

"Its own brew is the only beer served"Edit

During Starkbierzeit, at least Hofbräukeller (not sure about the 'haus) serves Weihenstephaner Korbinian, brewed by a different brewery, though also owned by the Bavarian government. Refer to, viewed 2012.03.30 (I now wish I had taken a photo of one of the many signs advertising this fact). In any case, I am removing the statement from this article because it is incorrect, it is rather superfluous as most beerhalls are tied to a brewery, and it is undocumented.

While the three sections are sourced; the wording of the section for Cleveland, West Springfield, and Newport all come across as highly promotional and seem to fail WP:NPOV. Also, I believe that WP:WEIGHT may be an issue as these sections effectively elevate each of these locations above the other dozen or so locations listed in the article. I also question the need for the Pittsburgh section; at best, this should be reworded to be more of a general criticism of the concept as it is related to an incident at one of the franchises (different company licencing use of the name and logos) and not directly related to the main company which is the subject of the article. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 19:48, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Hofbrau West SpringfieldEdit

This location is not affiliated with the real Hofbrauhaus and appears to be free riding on their trademark.

Hofbräu pale lager

Beer historyEdit

I believe the standard helles beer served at the Hofbräuhaus is simply a Pilsener-style pale lager. This article fails to discuss the shift to this type in Munich, which would have been in the waning years of the 19th century. Sca (talk) 20:58, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Duplicate article?Edit

I believe this page may be a duplicate of the following page:

Hofbräuhaus am Platzl however both pages have different information about the hofbrauhaus. Could the two articles be merged somehow? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:56, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
