I didn’t visit the brewery, only the shop, which is worth a visit on its own! The prices are really low, 0,80 Euros (including deposit) for world-class beers like Celebrator or Weizenbock is remarkable! Beside memorablias and various beer glasses, they had all Ayinger beers from the core range, but also most of all seasonals, like the Winterbock, Weizenbock and even some bottles of the autumn seasonal Kirtabier. The main reason I came here was another beer though: the Zwickl, which is an unfiltered version of the Jahrhundertbier and only available in Aying in 2 litre growlers. And what should I say, this beer alone was worth the whole trip, one of the best Lagers I’ve ever had!
Overall just how a brewery shop should be, definitely worth a visit.

Neat modern shop in the brewery, where they offer tours (which I didn’t do yet). They have all beers which are in season for very nice prices, and you can get growler fills of the gorgeous Zwickel, which is the main reason why I come here.
This is the (new) brewery building.
3 features are found here:
1) The brewery tour (brauereiführungen).
Recommended and very interesting. On one side, their cutting-edge technology is just incredible. On the other side i felt like the "handcraft" thing has been taken over by computers and automation. Sad. But the final result anyway is awesome.
German tour is available 3 days per week for around 9€ per visitor. English or Italian tours may be available occasionally, otherwise by prior booking.
2) The beer hall (Schlander).
This is the last stop of the tour. They’ve built up a nice bar in the boilers room which i believe is open only on special events.
3) The brewery outlet (getrankemarkt).
Here you have all their regular beers including the masterpiece Celebrator, the latter at the scandalous price of 76 cents per bottle! Very convenient!
Can find also souvenirs, 6-packs, 8-packs, glassware and gadgets.
SpecialS/seasonal beers were not available when i went there the first two times, last was on early september and i found the Kirtabier.
Disclaimer: Sadly I didn’t had enough time to attend the tour.
The beers in the brewery shop are really, really cheap. They have some beer boxes with glasses, some merchandise and everything you expect from a brewery sale.
The visit was interesting in this wonderful place of Aying. The organization was ok, nice guide. It was only in German but it was find and the apero at the final was really friendly and this brewery makes good quality. It is a shame that we don’t find this beer in Switzerland.
This is a large commercial brewery, but not as large as I thought it would be. It is probably the first thing you’ll see on your right as you enter the small village of Aying. Plenty of parking. As you pull in, the brewery is on your left and the shop is on your right. Ridiculously low prices, as is the norm for commercial German beer.
Located in a very small town, parking nonetheless proved a bit challenging for this tourist.
Upscale, as Bavarian brewpubs go, this brewpub has the reputation for attracting a relatively well-to-do clientele, as was apparent on my visit. A fine selection of brews is available along with Bavarian pub and more upscale food offerings. Certainly worth visiting if in the area.
