Description: Royal Bavaria Brewery & Restaurant was founded November 20, 1992 by Jörg Kühne,
a businessman from Munich, Germany.His idea was to bring the original Bavarian brewpub to Oklahoma with an authentic atmosphere, true Bavarian hospitality and the typical German cuisine, which has found so many friends all over the world.A 5.5 acre property was located very quickly and soon the project was approved by the City of Moore. In the southeast corner of the city at the 4-lane highway 77H (Sooner Road) the groundbreaking took place in August 1993. After the customary 5-week time had passed, according to an old custom, the topping out ceremony took place. The 8 bbl- brew house, supplied by HRH, Prince Luitpold of Bavaria, was integrated into the 5000-sqf building by the end of November.Early in January 1994, the executive chef Andy Gmeiner (also a native of Munich) arrived from Germany to supervise the complete installment of the kitchen. He then created the menu, hired and trained the staff. The Grand Opening of this beautiful brewpub in the style of a typical Bavarian farmhouse was celebrated January 28th, 1994 with an exquisite 7- course dinner of German specialties and 180 invited guests.In the beginning the brewery was operated by Bavarian Brew Masters. Starting in the summer of 1996, the famous beers of the Royal Bavaria have been brewed by Jörg & Karin Kühne. The outdoor beer garden, set in its huge tree shaded area that currently seats 175 people, was opened with a great festival in July 1994.Now in 2007, after 14 years under the lead of the founder, the corporation was turned over into the competent hands of Andy Gmeiner. As the new owner, his pledge is to continue to operate the Royal Bavaria, Restaurant & Brewery under the founder’s original idea through his knowledge and good spirit.
