A wonderful "must do" trip if you're in the Munich area. Easily accessible via the s-bahn system and either a short bus or taxi ride from the station.
The entire atmosphere is just terrific. A large self-service style beerhall (no tablecloth in sight) that of course just happens to carry some of the best half-dozen beers in the whole world.
I was there in the winter so I didn't get to experience the outside biergarden area quite so much, but you can see how nice it must be in warmer weather. The view is stunning.
Beers were roughly 2 euros each and are served in the default .50 mug, or the larger one for about 50% more for the Helles and Dunkel.
Selections are a Helles, Dunkel, Weiss, Doppelbock, and a few special selections. The specials in the winter of '05 were the AMAZING Apfelweiss, and Dunkel Jubilaumsbier. You also can order a Radler if that's your cup of tea. There are also several varieties of Schnapps distilled at Andechs including peach and apple. A nice couple from Hamburg gave us a try of the apple and it was wonderful.
Food is typical hearty bavarian fare...but done REALLY well.
English is typically spoken and mostly understood, but knowing a few German phrases is a big plus.
It just doesn't get much better than this. If you're in Munich, you'll want to hit up the Hofbrauhaus and Andechs.

Because all of the beers are so wonderful, you'll want to likely have a friend ordering one thing while you order another...and just split the beers. This way you can try everything without becoming incoherant due to the potency of many of the brews!

An amazing thing is that the place is FULL of locals. We arrived at 10AM thinking we'd be the first ones only to discover 25 locals that appeared to have arrived some time earlier. By noon, the main hall was full...and on a random Wednesday no less. People in Germany know a good thing and take advantage of it!

EDIT: In the summertime the place opens up quite a bit. There's a huge patio area with an additional bar area, and even a second biergarten on your way up the hill with its own taps (which may have items not available in the main hall). Also, the Apfelweiss turned out to be a simple juice-blend item (which is still awesome), but you could probably have them make it using other beers as well. (2,284 characters)

Probably my favorite beer garden that I visited during my trip to Bavaria. I only tried the Helles and the Doppelbock beers. I don't remember much about the Helles, but the Doppelbock was awesome. I had pork belly to eat which was also fantastic. Food and beverage were both very reasonable. It was less expensive than beer gardens in Munch. We went on a Sunday afternoon in the Spring and there was a traditional Bavarian band playing music and it was a very festive atmosphere. Views were good too since it sits on top of a hill. (531 characters)

This is it. This is a place where all beer lovers must pilgrimage to. Come on... It's a monestary in the Bavarian Alps where they have making beer for hundreds of years. And of course the beer is amazing. (208 characters)
