I stopped in at the end of May when it the weather is warm and it's perfect for a day at the biergarten. We took the train to Friesing and walked up the hill past the school and "stumbled" upon the biergarten.
They serve a host of different items including helles, dunkel, weiss, dunkel-weiss, kristal-weiss, Korbinian, Vitus (a new weizenbock), pilsner, alcohol-free, as well as radlers or russ'ns made with any of the above.
The beers are all hyper fresh and as expected, are amazing. Even though some of the items are bottled, this is as fresh as you'll ever encounter them. Supposedly this is the only place you get the pils, too.
The view is stunning. You can see a nice rolling countryside that makes a wonderful backdrop. Did I mention the smells coming from the brewery itself? It's simply AMAZING. It's worth the trip for that alone.
Service was a little spotty the day we visited. It seemed like they were just a little short staffed, so I had to wait for someone to man the beer window on 2 occasions. Still, they spoke English and were really nice. I don't blame anyone, obviously.
For the food, we had wursts, pretzels, and the typical bavarian items you expect. It's not as good as some of the really high end bavarian restaurants (or Andechs) but it's still excellent biergarten cuisine.

It's a short train ride from Munich (only about 30 minutes, plus a 20-minute walk) so this is a must-visit for any Bavarian beer treks. I'd put it 2nd to only Andechs on the list of places you must see.
