Weihenstephan itself traces its brewing history back to 768, the yeast strand itself predating that by centuries. The location was once a forestry school turned abbey on the outskirts of the Black Forest. Now it's a solid brewery (oldest in the world), and Bierhaus. The food is Bayernish, and the beer is incredible. There were nine beers on tap when I visited, and my company ordered round the house all of them. My favorites were the "Vitus Weizenbock, and hefe-dunkel weizen's. To eat, I had the weißwurst Früstuck with senf and a brezel. What else right? Wunderbar! The Atmosphere was great, quality undeniable, service fast, selection expected, and food traditional.

You can't help but walk away feeling a bit of the educational vibe. Weihenstephan is now a renown beer school, and mecca for enthusiasts. American's, pray towards the East.

We visited the brewery a few years ago and had a lot of fun. The beer was fantastic and the grounds gorgeous. We ate the Bräustüberl And it was nice.

The food was decent and the service more than adequate. I've had much better food in Germany, but it was hard to beat the atmosphere and the fresh Weihenstephan. Overall a great experience.

Visited here early March 2015. Short train ride from Munich to Freising, a bus up the hill, then had to walk about 250 meters to the brewery.

Very German, very clean. I didn't get to do the tour (but I signed up for it since I'm going to be back soon) so I just went into the Braustuberl for lunch. EXCELLENT! My waitress was nice, attentive in a German/European way [they don't come over every 5 minutes to check on you - Americans are often not used to that]. Had 2 Vitus beers (delicious) and the Brotzeitbrettl, which is basically a cutting board with sausage, cheese, and a couple typical German spreads for bread. Great portions, fresh and delicious.

Can't wait to go back.
