Before 1896 Johann and Maria Weiß married on 07.01.1896. They had 13 children, 4 of which emigrated to the USA. In addition to being a farmer, Johann Weiß was also 'Schäfflermeister' (a barrelmaker). Johann and Maria Weiß farmed livestock and also ran a barrel-making business.
An inn was also established at the farm, where bottled beer and vinegar was sold.
1896 onwards Johann and Maria Weiß began serving Löwenbräu beer from Munich.
The beer was transported from the Löwenbräu brewery by horse and cart, and stored in the "ice cellar". Large blocks of ice were used to cool the beer.
So began the cooperation with the Löwenbräu brewery, which has lasted for over 116 years.

The origin of the "Schäffler Wirt" name

"Schäffler" is the old name for a barrelmaker in Bavarian dialect. There are quite a few other German words for this occupation too. Johann Weiß also acquired this skill at the end of the 19th century. As well as barrelmaker, he was also a farmer and inn keeper and therefore very well known in Aschheim and the surrounding area.
