Totally packed on the inside but had about 50 open seats under the umbrellas outside. A literal stoneís throw from the Dom, as well as an Augustiner and the NŁrnberger Bratwurst GlŲckl (both of which were much busier in their outside sections - better views?). Iím convinced the DBD tastes significantly different on tap; today, it was fresh and young-tasting, the major difference being the cherry flavor, which is just an element out of the bottle, but dominant here.
Packed place, didnít intend to go there first but somehow we ended up there. The interior seemed quite nice but we ended up outside. Service... I ask if they have any seasonal beers, the guy almost starts patronizing us, brings the English menu and starts explaining the regular lineup. Gee, thanks. It was a yes or no question. Got the (quite nice) beers relatively fast considering the crowd, and we were constantly asked something, if we want some pretzels, if we will drink more. Ok. In the end it seems that the guy either wanted to screw us over or he thought weíll leave him a tip larger than the bill. I mean what the hell? Still, letís just call this a misunderstanding and I wonít lower the service rating. Eh, Iíd go there again anyway. They are one of the only ones fair enough to offer both a small and a big beer (and theirs are pretty good), the placeís great on the inside too.
The Andechs beers are good, but damn is this the hipster hangout of beer places or what? Always packed and trendy. I think I walked past after seeing how packed it was at least twice as many times as I actually got a beer while in Munich. Sometimes you just feel like a doppelbock though.

Nice place for have some Andechser beers. Service was friendly and quick. Recommended place.
Beautiful frescoed interior; small and open. The terrace can get crowded however as it overlooks the Dom and is thus very popular. The beers here are stunning, from the refined Helles to their complex Doppelbock. A must stop when in Munich, no doubt.
Being smaller than other "main" bars in Munich, we couldnít find a place to sit inside on a December weeknight, so we took a table outside. The staff wasnít exactly quick, but they were polite. Beer selection is very good, we tried their Doppelbock Dunkel and it was poured in a proper glass on the right temperature. Shame it got to cold, since we were sitting outside.
This is my favorite brewery restaurant in Munich, and Iíve pretty much been to all of them. All the beers are outstanding and the food is perfectly prepared and is probably the best German fare Iíve ever head. The seasonal offerings I tried were all outstanding. The service is quick and friendlier than your average German restaurant. The waiters and waitresses have always been able to help me select the what they felt were the most kick-ass dishes on the menu. I gotta say, Iíve agreed with them! I just keep going back.
The place is always packed, as itís probably the smallest Brauhaus in Munich, at least in Marienplatz. Itís even smaller than the Ayinger restaurant across from that awful tourist trap, Hofbrau Haus. The cavernous basement is cozy and old-feeling.
Canít say much about the selection. I mean, it is Germany. Selection is pretty much non-existent in this country. Itís a concept the Germans donít quite grasp. A German once said to somebody I know, when he was talking about wanting to try different beers from all over Europe, "why do that? They donít make a good beer where you come from?"
Anyways, go here when in town, but not first. Youíll be slightly disappointed with every other place you visit next. And donít let the crowd on the deck deter you. Theyíre just there to what the football game.
Got here on a crowded Friday night. A nice place and food was the normal Munich fare. Service was a bit slow but the crowd was huge. Beers are great as all know. A nice stop and if you cannot get to the mountian then come here.
