I visited this place on a Saturday night in December 2007. To me, its name is Ayingers Speis und Trank (Food and Drink) and is part of the four star Platzl Hotel. With this in mind, this place is distinctly more reserved than many Munchner establishments, and we were met with this fairly unwelcoming besuited gentleman just inside the door. He wasn't too keen to have us enter as tables were full, but he agreed to allow us sit up at the bar as all we wanted were drinks. In contrast, the barmen were most friendly and accomodating. I spied a seasonal Winterbock (330ml) on the blackboard, so I went for that but it was a little on the bland side. My second beer was the Ayinger Helles and lastly we went for the Helles Holzfass direct from the wooden cask that they had just tapped. Nice work with the mallet, guys! This was a very nice place, and its atmosphere is a direct contrast from the Hofbrauhaus.

When in Bavaria, you must quaff Ayinger, which is my personal favorite. This venue is a cozy Bavarian tavern located in the swanky Platzl Hotel, a beer stein throw from the world famous Hofbrauhaus (See My Review). It is a pleasant place, woody and pleasant, much like a pub you could find anywhere in Germany. What made this place special and a MUST for me was the fact that they tap a cask of Ayinger Jahrhundert daily at 5pm. Truly, a delicious beer. Include some hearty Bavarian cuisine and excellent service and you could stay here all day - without fighting the crowds at .... well, you know.

This was another wonderful stop during our beercation. The rain and chilly air drove us away from English Garden to find an early dinner and to try the beers. Every bottled offering that I had back home had impressed me so I had high expectations for our visit here. They didn't disappoint. We really liked the vibe here (one of the few places that had a bar), and the service was very good regardless that it was a busy place already.

Seven beers were on tap, but there were no sampler-sized pours so we had to choose carefully which ones we could order without drinking too much. We chose the Jahrhundertbier (Century) beer and the Maibock. (The maibock was an especially sweet discovery since I had homebrewed a clone recipe of this beer and wanted to experience the real thing.) Later we ordered the Kellerbier to go with dessert. Each beer was brewed very well to style, and we gave an overall B+ grade to them. (The maibock tasted exactly like the beer that I had brewed at home.)

The food was just as good as the beer. Well actually we gave it a higher score than the beer, so that says something right there. We had the beer goulash and the beef roulade, and a sweet plum dumpling dish for dessert. Everything was a real treat. This place is a little more formal than other places that we had visited, and maybe the prices were a little higher too, but it was all worth it. This place is highly recommended.

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.
