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 Beer of the Week: Finest from the Cask and the Brewing Art Atelier
Place: BayWa Coworking Space, TUM Venture Lab FAB, Maximus-von-Imhof-Forum 2
DateFriday, 26.05.2023
Time: 03:00 pm

As part of our CAW Beer of the Week, we present international, unusual and special beers on our social media channels that you rarely encounter in everyday life. The tasting of the beers takes place in a small setting with six to eight people under the guidance of an experienced brewing student. The target group is brewing students and beer enthusiasts. Ultimately, an expert report wants to be written about each of the beers. But don't worry: during the joint review and discussion of the beers, we gather enough material about all the sensory impressions the beers have to offer.

In May, we look at fine beers from the barrel and the brewery art studio. We will taste the Schneider TAP X Cuvee Barrique as well as the Passionsweisse, the Caramel Cru and the Mokkastout from TYRELL BrauKunstAtelier.

Participation is free of charge. Due to the limited number of participants, registration by email to is required!
