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.
Stopped in here for a beer and to warm up just before catching a the train with my husband on our honeymoon. It was snowing outside and the warm atmosphere was just what we needed. The place was packed - it was a weeknight in January - a mixture of locals and tourists. Beer was great and we plan to visit the monestary this summer. In fact, we enjoyed the beer so much that we missed not one but two trains before we finally made it home!
If you donít have the time to travel to the monastry get at least the typical beers (Helles, Dunkel and Weissbier) here. Small and crowded place (quite typical Beerhall in Germany really). Food seemed good.
