Exploring Munich on foot, I stumbled across Weisses Brauhaus and thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The place was full and I was able to get a table upstairs. The atmospehere was casual and comfortable. Service was outstanding and the menu and beer selection were excellent. I had the wiener schnitzel with a Schneider Kristall for starters followed by an Aventinus which was amazing. This was not a tourist destination and that made it quaint and genuine. Walking distance from Marienplatz made it very accessible. Across the street from Paulaner and around the corner from Ayinger, Augustiner and Hofbrauhaus. Went to each of them and enjoyed every one of them. Weisses was a highlight for me.

This place was a real treat! Easily the finest establishment I visited while in Munich. A decent sized beer hall with a selection of elite beer products and great food. The roasted pork leg with the gravy and potato dumplings was phenomenal, and their selection of fine fresh beer was unlike any beer drinking experience I had experienced! The Aventinus products here were a thing of beauty, and the fresh house weiss was remarkable. Highly recommended. If you go to Munich, you must go here. It will be worth it.

This is a REAL German Bier Hall! I have been there a few times over the years and it never disappoints. Due to it's location on Tal Strasse, it is great to sit outside, have a few Schneider Weisses (or Aventinus), a high-quality Bavarian meal, and people watch. It is also a good place to sit and plan your attack for Munich.
The restaurant: the wait staff can be a bit temperamental, but they are quick, answer your questions, and never make mistakes. The menu is in many different languages so it is easy to order for most everyone. The outside seats are great, but if it is cold (or raining) the inside rooms are quintessential Bavarian; with animals, long tables, and music.
Finally, the bier: I may be biased, but Schneider, along with hacker-Pschorr, are my favorite beers so all the choices are top notch. The Aventinus is one of the best beers in the world and the Icebock is a unique beer that is well worth the try.
Overall, if you are in Munich, you need to go to the Weisses Brauhaus for a wonderful Bavarian experience.

Visited a couple years back, stumbled on it online and thought I should review it. My mouth is watering just thinking about the Tap 5 and meal(s) I had there while in Munich.
Incredibly easy to find but almost always crowded (more locals than tourists). Keep that in mind and hopefully you get a seat.
Beer selection is great as Schneider is one of my favorites in Munich because of the variety. Super fresh beers, nice glassware to match them, service is typical German (simple and effective, if you need something, ask!)
The only thing I was dissapointed with is the fact that they don't offer the special Schneider offerings : Meine Nelson Sauvin for example. Those big fancy bottles of the "rare/now BA" stuff seem to mainly be for export as I have seen them in France, Belgium, and the US.
If in Munich, it is a must visit.

Showed up here before the dinner rush and was very pleased to see Aventinus on tap! Our server didn't know much English but tried very hard to help us, even if it involved bringing other more fluent servers over to help translate. It was fairly calm and laid back here and I liked it. A good place to eat before heading to the Hofbroihaus, just don't have too many Aventinuses! The menu was in all German from what I saw, so I saw the words "uber" and "aventinus" in one thing and pointed at that. It was really good! For dessert I tried an ice cream sorta of thing that comes in an Aventinus glass with Aventinus mixed in I believe. On top was a scattering of fresh fruit. It was okay at first then was hard to stomach by the end because of the beer. It's still neat to have Aventinus ice cream though, so I'd try it at least once!
I was very pleased to see they also had the Aventinus Eisbock. It's in a bottle but the cost here is still $.50 less than what I'd pay at a well priced local beer store. Overall I thought this place was very nice and was glad to have been directed here by other BA members who have reviewed it, otherwise I would have undoubtably skipped over it.
One side note, I was not very impressed with the Schneider Weisse Hefeweizen...or at least what I think was a hefeweizen. Our waitress just sorta pointed at an unfiltered beer from another table and I nodded so that's what I got. It was darker than a usual hefeweizen but not nearly like a dunkel. For me it lacked character and very hard to get the whole thing down. Maybe it would be better as a warm up to the Aventinus...but if I go again I probably won't bother to find out.
