Closed for a short while, reopened mid-November 2015 as part of the Hacker-Pschorr family. They claim a Helles, Dunkel and Weiss bier are made on site. The Weissbier was classic Bavarian and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a re-badged H-P beer. Food was good, as was the service. Impressive interior with the Munich giant sparing no expense.
Good food. Avarage prices. Beer is far away from the best beer in the city. Service is slow a bit - the restaraunt is very big, so it happens in such places. But if you are close to that place and starving, you could go there.
I visited the place in a Monday evening. I’ve had some of the beers earlier but they were handbottling so I wanted to try them as fresh as possible. Also, I heard that they had renewed the brewery. Nevertheless, the beers didn’t impress me a lot. I didn’t try the food but my friend ordered something and didn’t get the portion he had ordered. The beers were served quickly. The place looks like.
Spent an hour or two in the biergarten with my wife, reading a book and having some beers. Really nice setting to spend some time, much cosier than inside. Beer list was ok, service a bit slow and pretty hard to get their attention. They were very busy setting up the terrace for the evening shift, and then all of a sudden the customers who were already present, were not important any more. Had some of the beer sausages, was pretty decent.
Had an unexpected layover at the station and got here quickly on my bike, great decision to risk it. A cheerful place and easy to feel at ease, though there are a couple of relatively incompetent servers here. Sat inside this time, surprisingly enormous interior, aircraft hangar-meets-Bavarian beer hall. Outside seating in front and a Biergarten in the back. Würste were pretty textbook and the lone beer I had was much better than the ratings here would have led me to believe. They are said to have some bottles to take away, but were out when I checked.
Large brewpub within Schloss St. Emmeram, which is worth a visit in itself (guided tours possible). Three beers (the ususal Helles, Dunkel, Weizen/Weisse) plus a seasonal. The last one is usually the most interesting. Food is good. Plenty of space inside and outside.
December 2011 - A little hard to find, but closely clustered with the Schloss Turn u. Taxis, this is a large-for-Germany restaurant/brewpub, bright and open, and nicely situated in a grand, historic building. Visiting in wintertime, the garden wasn’t an option, but the warm and inviting dining room was a nice alternative. The beer and food offerings are solidly centered in the regional styles -- weisswurst, pretzels and such -- and a light, dark and maybe a bock or weizen. The two beers we tried were solid enough if uninspired, like most Germany beers. Most definitely a good spot for lunch, dinner or just a beer if you find yourself in this neat city. (Brewery #562)
