The ownership of the
once tiny brewery changed hands many times until 1807 when the Royal Hofbräu brewmaster, Gabriel Sedlmayr, took over the then Munich's smallest brewery, known as Spatenbräu. The still today used logo with a spade symbolising a malt shovel bears his initials. Sedlmayr's sons continue to run the business and in 1867 Spaten becomes the largest brewery in Munich, as was then measured by malt use.
