Went here with some buddies while backpacking. Really enjoyed the beer, both the original and the dunkel. Went through 3L of it each and would have gone for more if it wasn't only 11am...This was our first official German beer hall, so keep that in mind when I say this place was amazing. It was one of the bright spots in our trip through 14 different cities.

The food was also really enjoyable, which was a great plus as we were really just interested in the beer (apple benets were amazing).

Only knock on the place was the atmosphere, wish it had been more crowded with a younger group of people, but this is a highly subjective personal preference. And keep in mind, we were there early in the day.

It was a great overall experience. Highly recommended to anyone traveling to Munich.

Went here with a few buddies during Oktoberfest. Augustiner Brau is one of my all time favorite breweries. In their festhalle on the Oktoberfest grounds, you can see they still serve their beer in oak barrels....ALL of it!!! They do not serve in stainless kegs. It was great to see the brewery.....they do not give tours, but you can see from inside behind on of the main rooms thru the glass wall....some of the stables where they have the horses that pull the beer wagons down the street for the parade, just like they have done for generations. Met the Owners son, one of the nicest guys i have ever met, and he truly embodied the German Gemuetlichkeit (German Hospitality) by spending time to talk with us during the Oktoberfest. Beer is excellent, the site is impressive to see that is has been there brewing amazing beer for so long. We didn't eat, but, it looked great as they were serving others.

A classic Munich beer hall and a favorite of a tour guide we talked to who does a beer hall tour. This place is located near the Octoberfest grounds, but is sort of out of the way. The beerhall itself is attached to the Augustiner brewery (although i did not go in). I had my first munich liter of beer here and have a deep affection for the place. At night, the place gets crowded as locals get very drunk, merry and pass around an accordion while snorting their snuff. A very "Munich" place...

I went here with some friends. We sat up on the terrace. There is also a big bierhall. This place is connected to the brewery itself.

The first thing that surprised me was it was only 5,10 for a maß. That is ridiculously cheap for Munich. It is Augustiner beer so I am not into it as much but for the price why the heck not? It was watery and they did a terrible pour but w/e it was beer.

I didn't order food but I ate a pretzel, nothing special about it. I sampled by friend's haxe and it was good but not great. They did have a bigger food selection than most bierhalls.

You can also get party kegs that they tap right there for you.

Overall it is a pretty good place tucked away near Hackerbrucke.

Visited on the early evening of 02/10/2010. We made the mistake of leaving it too late to go to the Fest, so we decided to head here in the hope for a mass! Lots of other people had the same idea!

Had to queue at the door for about 10 mins, for space to be free, eventually getting in we were seated at a table for 8 with 2 other groups, understandable as it was so busy. As described before, the place is much smaller than the other Munich beerhalls so space is at a premium.
This made for a lively, bustly atmosphere, but it was farrr tooo warm!!

Full Augustiner line up was available, we sampled a mass of helles, served in branded glassware and in excellent condition!

Establishment seems to be divided into 2 rooms as you walk in, one to the right and one to the left. Lots of dark wood and tables as expected, we sat in the left hand room.

Service was understandbly slow, but we didnt mind as there was lots of people watching to do, and the waiters did keep a smile on their face.

Didnt sample food here, as it really was taking too long as you could see others frustrated so unfortunately this was a one beer stop for us. Food did look very tasty, pork knuckle in particularly and in healthy portions!

Next in Munchen, will definitely make an afternoon visit for a mass of Marzen and some hot food!

Came in here a couple times while in Munich and I really loved this place. Fairly small compared to some of the beer halls in Munich but this makes it much more cozy and friendly I think. The staff was quite good with English so don't be afraid to drop on in if you're German is lacking.

They have a nice lineup of your standard German lagers, their original (a Helles) and weissbier are both very solid and tasty. Their food is great as well, I had both the sausage sampler (4 different sausages over sauerkraut) and the pork knee which were both excellent and fairly reasonably priced if not a bit expensive (8 euro for the sausage and 10 euro for the pork).

If you're in munich you need to check out hofbrauhaus but don't skip here either!

Takes about 15 mins to walk along Bayerstrasse from the Hauptbahnhof south entrance, until you meet Landbergertstrasse and then the Augustiner Brewery Braustube.

At our time of visit the weather was poor and thus all beer gardens closed, so most bars were very busy and this was no exception. However one of the waiters found us a place at a table, and we were quickly served with the Hell and an English Menu. Good value food in generous portions, and we did not wait long despite every room being jam packed! It seemed to be 80% local Germans, the rest were tourists, and we passed many other tourists looking for the place as we walked back.

Good beer, good food, lively busy atmosphere, reasonable prices make this a place worth visiting, would definately return, but do prefer their Beer Garden on the other side of the railway tracks on Arnulfstrasse!

The Braustuben is on the west side of Munich and is walkable from the city or the many hotels on that side of town - it is well worth searching out - it is by some distance the best beer hall in Munich, the ones in the city are dull tourist traps with no atmosphere at all. The Braustuben is the real deal with beer, food and patrons all fully Bavarian in nature. The beers are simple and great tasting, albeit from a small selection. The food is just fantastic - those of an adventurous nature can just point at something in the German list and wait to see what appears - in several visits there, this strategy has led me to sample various sausages, livers, legs and other great tasting offal portions. Not the place for a quiet business meal and beer but a real cultural experience for sure.

The last time I was in Munich was 2008, but I always made a stop in Augustiner Bräustuben to start my visit. This place opens at 10am, and the food and beer is outstanding. My son would always get the weisswurst, and my daughter would get the giant blueberry pancake.

I usually had the sausage sampler with a Weissbier or the Helles. You can't beat the prices either. I think the 1/2 L of the Helles was 2.45 euro. Service was always great, and at 10am, not to crowded yet.

The kids loved the old horse stables on display near the bar. A great place to start your Munich visit!

I don't know what else to say except that this might be my favorite place in the world to eat and have a beer (or two). The first time I tried a liter of the Augustiner Helles I thought I would never find a more perfect lager. The Weissbier is also something to write home about. The atmosphere is fantastic as the place almost seems like a well kept secret that only locals know about. There were seemingly few tourists (me being the exception) thus, the prices are better than reasonable. I have been to Munich many times and I always make sure to stop in here every time. It is a bit out of the way, but it is quite accessible with the light rail.
