'''Spaten is one of Munich's six major beer brands. Its beer brewing history dates back to 1397 when a brewer named Hans Welser set up a small brewery in central Munich, originally named Welser Prew.'''

The ownership of the brewery changed hands many times until 1807 when the royal Hofbräu brewmaster, Gabriel Sedlmayr, took over what the brewery which had by then changed name to Spatenbräu. At this time it was then Munich's smallest brewery named Spatenbräu. The still today used logo with a spade symbolising a malt shovel bears his Gabriel Sedlmayr's initials. Sedlmayr's sons continue continued to run the business and in 1867 Spaten became the largest brewery in Munich, as then measured by malt use.

In 1872, Spaten made history by introducing a light-an amber coloured Vienna-style beer at Munich's Oktoberfest, named Märzenbier. The [[Märzenbier]] which became an instant success when it was first sold in the Schottenhamel Festzelt became an instant success as other the usual beer supplies ran had sold out. The popular Märzenbier was originally permitted to be brewed only between St. Michael's Day (29th September) and St. Georg's Day (23rd April) and had to be stored in ice cellars until the Oktoberfest. Märzenbier, also became known as [[Oktoberfestbier]], is a and eventually changed to the pale golden and slightly stronger Helles (lager)which is still today sold during the Oktoberfest.
