Actually got here somewhat by accident, was planning on visiting a place on the SE side of the tracks but the helpful lady in the Touri-Info Center pointed me here. The brewery is just one street over on Mainburger Straße, this is their Ausschank. Hate that it’s unumlauted Hofbrau after all those years of correcting pronunciation of Munich’s Hofbräuhaus (yes, I know why). Anyway, they have a large self-service Biergarten in the back, comparable to some of those in Munich; the guy working that section was a total asshole to me, unprovoked, so I walked through to the serviced terrace in front and found better, friendly service there. Käsespätzle was essentially the creamiest, gooiest mac + cheese I’ve had in years, and the beers are certainly good enough (Huber, i.e., the polar bear beer, is also brewed next door). If you’re doing Weihenstephan, I’d definitely recommend hitting this place as well and maybe spending the rest of the day in Freising, which really is a beautiful town.
