Close to the original brewery and in the original and historical building. you can see the horse-drawn carriage that takes the beer in its wooden barrels. Beautiful wooden bierhaus, has also on the top for the summer a small place. A lot of copper is used and it’s very nice. Food is good and everything is well priced. Also, you can buy some Augustiner merchandise and glassware. Service is quick but not very friendly though.
We visited the ’original’Augustiner on 2.1.2016, definitely worth to be our first beer place in 2016. Located not far from the famous Theresien Wiesen this is the true Augustiner beer restaurant. Bräustuben has been perfectly decorated - dried hops hanging down from the ceiling, a tap house looking like a huge brew kettle and wooden tables and benches creating the right traditional beer culture. Service was slightly above Munich average (which is still bad). Highlight for sure is the Edelstoff from the wooden barrel for ’only’ 2.75 €. Overall a Must visit in Munich.
The real Augustiner…! Very close to the Augustiner Brauerei and partly located in the brewery’s converted stables and the converted old smithy; even though not far from the main railway station far less touristy and less noisy than the huge Augustiner Bierhalle in the pedestrian zone; typical bavarian interior ( dark wooden furniture, half panelled walls, partly vaulted ceilings and so on…), fortunately not kitchy and - regarding the size - pretty unspoilt and cozy. Very decent Augustiner Bier is served, what else! Worth a detour…
Very traditional place, always packed by locals. Great selection of augustiner biers at lowest prices in the city. They have augustiner helles (2.65 euro) from holzfass since 17.00. When place is packed, one barrel survives only 10 minutes (do not try to compare it with Dusseldorf - they have only one beer on tap v.s. 3-4 beers on tap at Augustiner + 2 from bottles). I really love this place, this is the one of my favourites in Munich.
