With my girlfriend and a another couple we went here on our trip to Europe because we were told this was a must visit beer hall in Munich. This place was huge and rich in history, more then one live band playing at the same time and that gives you an idea of how big this place was. We sat at a massive table with several other groups from all over the map and even snorted some snuff with an old German lady. A small selection of decent beers for the boys and a lemon beer mix for our ladies served in a massive mug (my profile pic is the mug in question) a great novelty and what I imagined a German beer glass to look like. I ate a bunch of meat and was well fed with pretzels being served by pretty young German girls who seemed embarrassed by their traditional outfits that were clearly put on for the tourists like myself. At the end of the day we had a blast here just drinking and talking to the locals and tourists alike, not where a beer geek would go to sample a bunch of brews in a quite environment but if you want to laugh drink and be merry this place is a must.

Large touristy beer hall. But, you have to visit at least once...

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.

It's been years since I visited the Hofbräuhaus in Munich. This is a must see beer dream for any beer aficionado.

The atmosphere is fantastic and ancient. The beer selection is very good for a German brewery/restaurant. A must eat dish is Haxen- braised pork shank with remnants of seared skin; it's fantastic.

Expect to be seated with strangers at long tables. It's part of the unique experience in Germany.

For the overall experience, this world famous beer hall deserves a perfect score. My score (4.85) is balancing their many excellent beers and very good food, as well as service (friendly but swift). For anyone lucky enough to visit Munich, this is a must.
