Traditional Tapping of the Maxlrain Jubilator Ultra Strong Beer
Launch of Strong Ale Season
After the annual carnival season has come to a close and the Lenten period begins, two red-letter days stand out in the Maxlrain events calendar. It is then that the dark double-strength bock beer is freshly drawn from the tap amidst a rustic alpine atmosphere in which Bavarian delicacies are served to the sound of traditional music, a Shrovetide special for the guest and host alike.
Further strong-ale tapping ceremonies take place in the surrounding area of Maxlrain.
Charivari "Morning Pint"
Several times a year - live from the Bräustüberl
The "morning pint" of "Radio Charivari" has become a very popular event in the Bräustüberl Maxlrain. Several Sundays a year, always from 11 am on, the radio station is sending live from maxlrain - with interviews, music and performances. An excellent atmosphere is guaranteed.

The Grand Vintage Car Rally in Maxlrain
Each year on Corpus Christi Day the gates of the Maxlrain Castle Meadow are thrown open for the annual vintage car rally. That’s the time when spruced-up road vehicles of yesteryear line up for the Bavaria Historic, a rally staged by the German Automobile Club ADAC through the Alps and spread over several days. A comprehensive supporting programme makes this event – attended by up to 20,000 enthusiasts – one of Maxlrain’s greatest events of the year.
Six o’clock Early Morning Dance in Maxlrain Beer Garden
In former times, maids and servants staged all their party celebrations at the crack of dawn before going about their daily duties. The best-known example is perhaps the Cooks’ Ball in Munich’s English Garden which has survived down to the present day in continuation of this ancient tradition. The early morning dance has meanwhile become firmly established in the region surrounding Rosenheim. On the first Sunday in July at the stroke of six the Maxlrain beer garden is already crowded with enthusiasts kicking up their heels and the band strikes up, there’s simply no stopping them!
Craft Fair and Traditional Costume Bazaar
An Event for both the Young and Young at Heart
In July, as a rule after the early morning dance, a two-day craft fair is staged each year over the first weekend of July combined with a traditional costume bazaar. Special exhibitors ply their ancient crafts in live demonstration workshops, enhanced by a colourful display of authentic local costume. Children are also invited to join in this hands-on experience.
Spontaneous music performances and presentations add zest to the proceedings. The admission is free.
Hop Picking Festival
in Bavaria’s Southernmost Hop Garden
Since time immemorial, the Maxlrain Castle Brewery has been supplied with hops from the Hallertau Hop Growing Region. A number of years ago, we decided to create our own hop garden where a major festival takes place every two years during the harvesting period. This is supported by a vast programme of side events along with an exhibition focused on hop growing. Traditional dishes are served and we always make sure that all ages are well catered for including our little ones.
Maxlrainer Jousting Tournaments
A Great Mediaeval Spectacle!
Each year at the end of September, the Maxlrain Castle Meadow transforms itself into a mediaeval town filled with display stands, craft-plying workshops and several performing stages. Distinguished mediaeval minstrel bands and groups assemble in Maxlrain for this grand occasion – staged now for over ten years – and transport guests into a magical world of its very own. Jousting tournaments alternate with magicians, jugglers, artistes and many other weird characters to make this two-day event a once-in-a-lifetime experience for young and old. Sunday is a popular kiddies’ day with attractions galore.
