I was just reviewing a bottle of their Spezial Hell that I picked up at the monastery, and realized that I need to review the place itself as well because this is really a must when visiting the area. It may actually deserve a bit of a pilgrimage as well.

I visited with some friends during our week long trip in Bavaria (mostly around Munich) during Oktoberfest 2010. Unfortunately, we got there a bit late, so we only spent about 1-2 hours there. Didn't explore the area itself - went straight from the parking lot up a short hill to the monastery. It was chilly, so beer garden was empty, but the main hall, which is quite large, was fairly full. Not full so that 6 of us could not find a table, but we definitely did not feel lonely. You get your beer and food upfront yourself. We came late, so not much of a wait. Service was not terribly friendly, but very prompt (I found most German service to be this way which is fine by me).

Atmosphere was great (as far as I am concerned). Clearly lots of locals, some of which seemed a bit displeased with our clearly touristy behavior (but I can't blame them). Even though we were outsiders, I did not feel uncomfortable at the slightest.

I think Andechs beer is exceptional. I've tried a few of the styles they had and they were all great.

Food was good too. Our group included a few adventurous individuals (myself included), so not knowing German we picked a few thinks mostly by the way they look. Some of it was not my thing, but some was great. Regardless, there is definitely a lot of interesting cheeses and meats to try.

Going out we got a few mixed six packs of 0.5L bottles to split.

This is really a great place that I hope to visit again. I'm not sure if this says anything, but going out our entire group was quite amused by the alcohol measuring apparatus in this place. Surprisingly our designated driver who only had one Radler beat out a few of heavier drinkers (including yours truly). Probably not accurate, but fun!

Probably my favorite beer garden that I visited during my trip to Bavaria. I only tried the Helles and the Doppelbock beers. I don't remember much about the Helles, but the Doppelbock was awesome. I had pork belly to eat which was also fantastic. Food and beverage were both very reasonable. It was less expensive than beer gardens in Munch. We went on a Sunday afternoon in the Spring and there was a traditional Bavarian band playing music and it was a very festive atmosphere. Views were good too since it sits on top of a hill.

This is it. This is a place where all beer lovers must pilgrimage to. Come on... It's a monestary in the Bavarian Alps where they have making beer for hundreds of years. And of course the beer is amazing.
