Approximately 1:00 p.m. Monday, September 17, 2001... As I took pictures from every angle of my standing glass of Aventinus, I must have looked a nut! And of the touristic variety, I might add. The genuine glass, full with the dark offering, topped with a rather large capping of stiff, unrelenting, off-white foam...

But what could I do? (Yes, I know -- drink the stuff, you fool). But see, this was my right-of-passage, my first trip inside the Weisses Brauhaus and, quite literally, my very first Aventinus. I had been heretofore untouched by the stuff due to quite purposeful, headstrong abstinence: I was having it in its time in the proper location first, or not at all (one of the few beers for which I will be willing to submit myself to such torture)! After years of notice, first reading of it in Mr. Jackson's and other noted authors' books and even seeing bottles here and there tempting my resolve, it was finally for my taking.

A beauty of a place. For its beer, for its atmosphere, for its food (noted for some of the best regional-style morsels around -- and non-regional surprises...a huge menu, though I noticed that the English menu was not quite the size of the German).

Best beer selection in Munich in my opinion, loved getting to try the full gamut of Schneider & Sohn brews, so damn tasty. The food was good too, had the peasants feast. Really enjoyed Tap 5 hopfenweisse. Unique combination of hoppy and wheat. Eisbock was great too.

Went here on Sunday, July 26, after a long wait to get to old town in Munich. The place is spectacular, right in the south-eastern side of old town, pretty close to the Hofbrauhaus. We opted for an outside table since it was so nice out that day. Service was actually pretty good for a German place, and they had English menus. Food was great, I had the butcher's platter which was 5 different sausages. They have pretty much every available Schneider-Weisse beer here except for the really odd stuff like Cuvee Barrique and Mein Nelson Sauvin. Basically, all the "Tap _" beers are here. Would STRONGLY recommend going here.

Visited a couple years back, stumbled on it online and thought I should review it. My mouth is watering just thinking about the Tap 5 and meal(s) I had there while in Munich.

Incredibly easy to find but almost always crowded (more locals than tourists). Keep that in mind and hopefully you get a seat.

Beer selection is great as Schneider is one of my favorites in Munich because of the variety. Super fresh beers, nice glassware to match them, service is typical German (simple and effective, if you need something, ask!)

The only thing I was dissapointed with is the fact that they don't offer the special Schneider offerings : Meine Nelson Sauvin for example. Those big fancy bottles of the "rare/now BA" stuff seem to mainly be for export as I have seen them in France, Belgium, and the US.

If in Munich, it is a must visit.

I am a big fan of their beers so for me this is a must. I recommend to any fan of German beer.
Has all there beers available. Also a nice selection of German food. But be warned every night we visited is was very busy and you may need to wait outside for few minutes. We had to on our visits. But worth the short wait and the price is very fair for what you get.

Some of my favorite beers are here so it was pretty much a pilgrimage to go to this place in Munich. So nice to sit outside and watch the people while drinking one of my favorite beers of all time. Typical slow paced bavarian atmosphere. Nice selection for this type of place although I stuck to their original and my favorite. We ordered some plates of food just as a snack and ended up with a feast! Great value.

I learned a lot during my first few hours in Munich, but most notably was how early Germans started their beer drinking. After getting my feet wet in the city (literally and figuratively) for a few hours, it was time to grab a beer. There are a couple enterences into the restaurant; sit yourself down anywhere there's an empty chair. Even before 10am, there were a lot of people inside eating and drinking, and it helped give the place and uplifting feeling.

Wooden chairs and tables around the restaurant, and there are several different rooms. The kitchen and bar sit in the middle of it, as I sat just a throw from it, along a long wooden high table. A moment later I received a special English menu to look at what beers and what food was available. I smiled; 7 different beers on-tap, from the classic Schneider Weiss, the strong Aventinus (my personal favorite), and even two guest lagers, and an addition four from the bottle. Not only was the beer very good, but the matching glassware added beauty as well. Most 300 ml pours went for €3.00, which helped my wallet as I planned to sample several beers.

Lets not forget about the food. 2 Weisswursts and a pretzel for breakfast...oh dear...I'm in love. After that moment, I had a feeling that I was going to love Munich (and I did).

Variety, quality beer, great food, and atmosphere; Weisses Brauhaus brings those characters to a level which very few in Munich can match. This is one to experience.

The Weiss Brauhaus is a great place to grab a Schneider Weiss and a pretzel while walking around the Old City in Munich. The decor is very "German" and the food is pretty good. Like everwhere else in Munich, service is slow (coming from a New Yorker) but it doesn't matter because the beers are big and the need for refills are not often

While in Munich I made a point to visit this place several times. Scneider Weisse Tap 1 mein Blonde proved to be my favorite beer in all of Munich and this place has plenty of them.
