I can't believe it's been almost 2 months since I was there during Oktoberfest! Went there just to check it out before heading to the Oktoberfest grounds, ended up staying for 5 hours.
Place was jammed in the middle of a weekeday afternoon, but to be expected during Oktoberfest. Was a little chilly and we ordered our first beer on the patio, were contemplating leaving until we walked by a table with a group of people getting up. SCORE! It's on!
A traditional Bavarian band was doing there thing and getting the crow going, we were instantly warm, and the 1 litre beers, or Maß, were flowing. I remember having a few of the Dunkle, the Hefe Weizen, and of course the Oktoberfestbier. FANTASTIC! Way to caught up in the moment to bother with beer reviews, but I was so glad to have some variety after the stead stream of 'festbier' on the grounds .Had a giant pretzel help soak some up.
Only knock was that we tried to ask our server about food and he basically ignored us, granted it was jam packed, but the food looked really good, and we just ended up sticking to the beers.
A must visit in Munich no matter what time of year. With my drunken Canadian comrades we immediately began pondering why we don't have a place like this at home, and wondered if it would be as big a hit there.... then we ordered another. PROST!!!

Visited in 2007 while touring Europe. This brewery had the traditional beer hall style. Very old Germany and Bavaria nostalgia, it was great to go for the experience. There are tables with names above them, DO NOT sit at these tables you will not be served and may be asked to leave. These tables are reserved for regulars, please be polite and sit at the other tables.
Luckily we knew this going in and had a great time. Nice atmosphere, good beer, and low prices seeing as you get a liter of beer.
