CAW Events

Even the most diligent student needs a little break from time to time to recover and recharge his or her batteries for their studies. The Club Ausländischer Weihenstephaner offers a varied programme of events both during the lecture period and during the holidays. Whether sports, education, art and culture, or simply socialising, at the CAW, you will find the right event for you!

CAW Regulars' Table

During the lecture period, we hold our CAW regulars' table at the Sammamera in Freising every Wednesday at 8:00 pm. The regulars' table is a meeting place for international students to get to know each other and exchange ideas. Those interested can also take the opportunity to taste the local beer specialities.

Tasting Events

We promote brewing and teaching beverage technology skills outside the university. You don't have to be a brewing student to benefit from this. The CAW experts professionally prepare information about the beverage to be tasted and guide you through the tasting. As a guest, all you have to bring is interest and curiosity. We regularly taste beer, but also wine, spirits and non-alcoholic beverages.

International Movie Nights

The CAW's international movie nights offer the opportunity to fully immerse oneself in the culture of the respective host country. The film screening is preceded by a tasting of drinks typical of the country with a special focus on the beverage-technological background, often accompanied by small appetisers typical of the country. At the screening itself, award-winning films from the host country are shown with the original soundtrack and English subtitles. In addition, there are other dishes typical of the country as well as desserts.

Hiking Trips

A hiking trip combines sport and nature experience. Freising's location makes it an ideal starting point for a variety of hikes, be it to the nearby Alps, along the Isar river or right next door to the Freisinger Moos. As a rule, our hikes are day trips, but sometimes we spend a night in a mountain hut on longer trips.

Company and Factory Tours

How is a particular drink or food actually made? How is a wine barrel or a bottling machine produced? All these questions can best be answered through factory tours. These expert tours – often conducted directly by our alumni – provide participants with exciting insights into the production processes and complement the grey theory from the lecture hall.


Here you can find the current events of the CAW. We are looking forward to your participation!

CAW Pumpkin Hike
Place: Korbinian Bridge Freising, North side
Date: Samstag, the 29th of October 2022
Time: 10:00 am

Pumpkins are an essential part of autumn and of course of Halloween. They come in all kinds of shapes and colours. There are many, many different varieties at the pumpkin farm Asenkofen, about eight kilometres from Freising.
We take a leisurely autumn hike along the Isar river to visit the pumpkin farm and buy pumpkins for Halloween. Along the way we will stop for lunch at an excursion restaurant and at a viewpoint.

GINternational
Place: to be announced
Date: Saturday, the 5th of November 2022
Time: 08:00 pm
Contribution to costs: 25 € (includes the drinks discussed at the tasting and a bottle of the gin produced during the event)

Gin derives its flavour from juniper berries and a variety of botanicals. The selection and combination of botanicals allows the distiller to create a unique product. Botanicals that are characteristic of the place of production are often used, such as green tea in Japan or hops in Bavaria. We start our journey through the world of gin with an interesting talk about its history and its production process. As a practical reinforcement to the theory, we will make our own gin on site. Afterwards, we will taste gins from all over the world under professional guidance. At the end of the evening, you can taste your favourite gin from the tasting again with tonic and deepen your gin knowledge in conversation with our expert.

Gingerbread and Beer tasting with St. Nicholas
Place: CAW Gardens
Date: Saturday, the 3rd of December 2022
Time: 6:00 pm

While children wonder which biscuit to eat in the run-up to Christmas, we wonder which beer goes best with which biscuit. In the course of our tasting in the winter wonderland of CAW Gardens, we pair strong beers aged in wooden barrels and brewed with spices, with gingerbread and biscuits. Our beer expert will explain which beer goes best with which Christmas biscuits and reveal which beers are particularly suitable as Christmas gifts. As every year, St. Nicholas will take part in our tasting and bring a little gift for everyone.

Field trip to Bamberg
Place: to be announced
Date: Friday, the 9th of December 2022
Time: 07:30 am
Contribution to costs: 30 € (includes transport from Freising to Bamberg and back as well as entrance fees)

There is probably no other Bavarian city where art, culture and beer appreciation can be combined as well as in Bamberg. Our pre-Christmas excursion to the Upper Franconian metropolis offers the right programme for everyone. After travelling together from Freising, we split into two groups in the morning. One group will visit the Weyermann malt factory, the other the cathedral and the Neue Residenz. In the afternoon, both groups will meet again for a guided tour of the city and a visit to the Bamberg Christmas Market.
