It was around 2009 when i was there last, but one of those places you dont forget. I was with a medium sized group so service didnt exist. Selection was about what you would expect from a tourist fill beer hall. Didnt try the food, so no news there. Over all worth seeing just to say you did it. Just dont expect great things.

It's everything they told you it would be. Fun, crowded, tourists,..
The beer is solid, and it's a fun spot.

It's the experience you will instaface, snapwitter and mytube all day. The vibe alone is worth the visit. This place is as authentic, quintessential experience as it gets anywhere. If you're worried about the selection, the food or the fact they don't have whalezbro, then you suck.

The Hofbrauhaus is packed day and night, so it may take a while to be waited on, but once you are waited on, the waitress/beer maid will visit you often. Come for the atmosphere during the day, but depart before night unless you're okay with being around the sloppiest of drunks. The food is old-worldly to say the least, so if you're into calf lung, the cuisine here is top notch!

Although we unknowingly stumbled upon this well-known "tourist trap"/historic local brewhouse, we lucked into being present on the day of apparently one of the bigger soccer matches of the year with FC Bayern playing one of the best French teams. The atmosphere was raucous as team chants rang throughout the noisy open seating area and service was suprisingly swift considering all the patrons packed into one large room. Enjoyable experience, enjoying beers next to strangers and eventually striking up conversation when discovering an English-speaker in our midst. The atmosphere on this day was what made the experience, the liter beers didn't hurt. The original Helles Lager was solid. The Dunkel not my cup of tea. The food... is apparently not what they are known for.

Of course, no trip to Munich is complete without having a beer here, the world's most famous beer hall. This royal brewery was founded in 1589 to provide Bavarian King Wilhelm with his own dark beer. Hofbrau is now one of the most popular of Munich's breweries. Yes, there are tourists here for selfies and the oompa music; yes, it can become quite crowded, but .... you gotta go. I stopped by for lunch in the main hall during a relatively quiet Monday morning. There are rows upon rows of rustic wooden tables and benches. (The private tables are reserved for regulars.) Really, it is a beautiful room with arches and ceiling murals. As for service, a waiter came by the moment I sat down and in minutes brought me a glorious liter of some delicious dark beer - dunkles. Add to that some delectable pork and spätzle and I was in Heaven and walked away a happy camper. If you choose to not order a meal, then flag down a dirndl clad waitress for a giant pretzel. BTW: at the time of my visit (November 2017), a liter cost 8.60 euros.

Come for the history. This place is mobbed as it is one of the top tourist destinations, but its worth a stop for a liter. Its incredibly large and filled to capacity both inside and out. The beer is ok, but its worth seeing such an important part of history.

There isn't much that I can say about this brewery that hasn't been said, but to counteract the reports of the crowds, find a way to go early. We got there on a Monday at 11:00 and it was mostly empty. No music playing yet, but the beer was flowing. The vibe is huge here, thus a 5.0 score. Being this early the service was excellent.

I discovered that they had their Maibock available, so I ordered that and my wife had the Weissbier. Both were very good. To go with the beer we ordered a pretzel that was as big around as my head, and I based my food score of this review solely on that thing. Very tasty. They also have wine and limited spirits available.

Note: We left and came back 2-3 hours later just to walk in to see thee activity. Things were hopping by then, and the music was playing. But to anyone reading this, you gotta' go.
