Finally made the bucket list trek this past weekend with a few buddies. We got there late, in the snow and it was quite cold. We opted to walk from the train station up the path in above mentioned conditions as the night fell. After finding our way up the path and to the quite massive complex that is Weihenstephan we finally found somebody that pointed us to the BeerStubel. I mention all the above to illustrate just how amazing this place really is! I would do it all, in worse conditions whenever I get a chance.

As mentioned, all their beers are available though some were poured from bottles. Many different sizes are also accomodated. All beers are served in the appropriate glassware and poured perfectly, as you would expect. The Stubel is very cozy on a cold night and while we didnt EAT the food, the sheer aroma and visually pleasing dishes spoke for themselves. We all tried everything but the Infinium which they had, it just didnt resonate enough for us to drink it. Prices were spot on for most Munich beerhalls and of note is the exstensive souvenier selection ranging from affordable to OMG how much?! All glassware were available for purchase in the range of sizes.

If you are near, you must go. If you are not near but want to go, you must go. I know I will if I ever make it back to Munich.

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.
