It was a slowly sunny April Saturday. Easter Saturday. As the sun just started to peak through the clouds and the leaves on the trees just started to peak through their newly-sprung buds we took a seat outside to the right of the beer hall.

A glance inside the beer hall revealed the usual bavarian decor: wood. Wood tables, wood chairs, wood barrels set up as tables. Many adjoining rooms. Very inviting, welcoming.

The night before had seriously taken its toll, and I wasn't all that excited about drinking at this time of day. But as we do, I soldiered on. I think they just had the helles and the wheat on tap. My two friends got the wheat and I got the helles. It was tasty, for what it was.

We talked to some germans next to us who were attending the soccer game later that day. You could tell that the outside beer garden would be packed in the summer, but now, it was a little too early. Overall, it felt like the perfect place to sit and drink a few on a warm, sunny afternoon in Munich.

The keller has a huge outdoor and indoor area. Who cares! Go inside and look for the sign that points to the keller and go downstairs into the old lagering halls and get a stein of beer! The atmosphere is great and the ceilings are just so amazingly BRICK. I was in love as soon as I saw it. I can't wait to go back.

Selection isn't the best; 5 beers. Food was pretty expansive.

Visited the outside Biergarten while on business in Germany. I never drank Augustiner beer before but the locals who took me said this is the most popular beer in Munich. It was the summer, so we sat outside on a beautiful day and ordered liters of their Helles Lagers. Wow! Best lager I've ever had! The beer was so smooth and drinkable I finished the liter in a matter of minutes. There is nothing better than drinking great beer in a high energy outside venue where everybody is just enjoying life. I tried to get their Helles Lager in the US but they only sell Edellstaff and Maximater. Both are good beers but their fresh Helles is the best!

I visited 2 times once on a slow afternoon for lunch and 2nd on a busy night. It a nice place for a quiet lunch but at 7pm or later on a June weekday the place was mobbed with people. It can be hard to get a table, we were in the self service area.
For lunch I have Nurnberg wursts which where decent and reasonably nice.

This place was "ok", this being said i got there late and it was cold so no one was there really. The beer is whatever, Augustiner is kind of weak compared to the other german beers. I would have enjoyed it more if the place was crowded. It was strange seeing a sea of empty benches and imagining the mayhem that would occur if those benches were full... I wanted that mayhem.... my parents went to the inside part and said it was the best place ever.... but I can only vouch for what i experienced

This ended up being my favorite place to drink in Munich during my trip. Location is nice, just enough out of the downtown to miss the worst of the masses. Very nice outdoor area that even features a projector for soccer games, can get quite crowded and rowdy during nice weather and big games. Didn't go to the indoor area as the weather was awesome. Standard Munich beer selection and standard Munich tourist prices. Standard beer garden self serve. Food was slightly better than the hofbrau and slightly cheaper.

My favorite of the beer gardens.
