Set in the Platzl in Munich across from the more famous Hofbräuhaus. We ordered a cheese platter but received a kind of toast with dipping sauces. The server was grumpy for no apparent reason.

The beers offered were traditional Bavarian lagers--helles, hefeweizens, etc. They are decent yet similar to all of Munich beers.

The vibe is chill, especially outside in the plaza. It's a lot of fun to people watch.

A nice beer hall from a more-than-adequate brewery (although not one of the Munich Big Six). Across the street from the Hofbrauhaus, this is a much quieter experience if you're in the area. The kellerbier was great, the pork was fine.

They went after running the marathon in Munich. We saw a dunkel and pils. Fantastic and of a very good quality. The food was exelent. We enjoy and enjoy a meal in an atmosphere like we wanted, quiet, authentic German quality

Really enjoyed the fresh helles from the wood served in an authentic ceramic mug. I hear they tap a keg of this every day at 5 and we were lucky enough to be there right around that time. The schnitzel was great too. Definitely one of the highlights from our trip to Munich

A wonderful place to have a beer and bite to eat. Not far from the Weiss Brauhuas and right across from Hof brau. I visited twice and sampled 6 of the about 8 beers on offer. Wasn't too crowded so I hung around to have a few quiet ones. The food is typical Munich but still rather nice. Recommended.

After Beer Hall hopping we needed some where we could get the amazing beers of the beer hall but not have to deal with the tourist crowds attracted by the beer halls. Tucked in what I would describe as an alley (really a cobble road) next door to a Starbucks, and less than 200 yards from Hofbrau and Hard Rock is Ayinger Wirtshaus.

It is a small intimate affair, that many I think won't experience because they simply won't be able to locate it. The interior matches the exterior as you walk into what is comparable to a hometown high-end pub. You wont find the large communal tables of other halls instead the place is dotted with 2 person high tops and a bar that is about 30ft Long.

The wait staff was exception every time we went, the only issue I experienced was the lack of carry out bags, but this is a cultural difference that I had difficulty acclimatizing to, but that was hardly the servers fault. We wanted souvenirs but unfortunately the stein we wanted was not being sold that day, so the bartender who was serving us simple said take it. He could have just served us the casked Celebrator that we have been drinking all evening but he went the extra mile for us to make us feel welcome and share the other places we had to visit.

The food selection directly represents the quality of beer of that is available. The Mushroom dumpling soup was one of the best mushroom dishes I have ever experienced. But we ate at this establishment multiple times, and the dish that had me coming back over and over was the Schweinshaxen. It is PORK HEAVEN!!! basically and this doesn't do it justice it is a SUPER tender ham knuckle that is cold smoked, then lightly breaded and deep fried, I shit you not, this was the BEST FOOD I HAVE EVER EATEN!

You will spend more here, but honestly it was worth every cent. If I have 3 hours in Munich to eat my last meal, you will find me at the Ayinger restaurant chowing down on schweinshaxen drinking cask celebrator.

Back from Salzburg, now what? Most of the major attractions are closed, except for one category; beer halls! Oh dear, another one? Well, if they're pouring Ayinger, and happen to serve a yummy pork entree, then I might consider...

Alive at 9pm and nearly packed with the exception of a few seats at the bar. The bar takes the shape most resemblant of a question mark. Spirits and bottled Ayinger beers stand behind the bar. Several bartenders behind the bar at one time and looking to serve quickly, which was refreshing. That wasn't the only refreshing aspect...

8 taps of Ayinger beer flowing from the barrels, which included the Weisse, Jahrhundert, Dark Wheat, Pilsner, Lager, Dunkel, Kellerbier, and Celebrator. Beer and food prices are fair for Munich, with half-liter pours hitting anywhere from €3.40-3.90. Several types of glassware are provided for the beer, depending on style and size.

Au gratin pork chop with potato dumpling, vegetable, and a pretzel? That will put a smile on me, especially after a half-liter of Jahrhundert.

I didn't have much chance to visit Aying, but I suspect that Ayinger am Platzl is a worthy alternate. At the very least, it's a quality visit and perhaps my second favorite beer stop in Munich.
