“Visited just later in the evening. Medium sized place with modern interior and several tables outside. Gregor, the owner definitely know his beers.12 taps and some 25 bottles. Really liked the concept of selection being divided between Franconian beers (Knoblacj, Roppelt etc) and some modern styles from new German breweries. Can't think of many better places in Munchen, if any.“

“Visited in the evening, not that many people inside. I liked the interior, good combo of modern and cozy. Reminded me of some US breweries. Some tables outside on the patio as well. 7 taps and few cans during our visit. One helles and the rest were IPA derivations. solid to good quality, but nothing to write home about. They do serve some food as well like philly cheesesteak. Anyway it's a pleasant place with selection which could be more thrilling.“

“Several tables outside and relatively small interior with central bar. Sitting booths are a bit cramped. Good selection of 14 taps and 35 bottles in the fridge. Mostly German stuff on tap both traditional and some newer breweries. Full range of Tilmans. Quality wise beers are solid to good. Good service. Worth checking out.“

“Didn't get to check the inside, but the biergarten is large and was rather busy in the early evening. Selection is limited to three of their beers on tap, didn't check the bottles. Hefe was the best, but was quite similar to their regular hefeweizen. OK for at quick stop I guess, but not a must visit.“

“Sort of a getranke with tables outside. Kind service. Solid selection of new wave German breweries and more classic breweries and styles. I don't recall any taps and wouldn't say there wareSome good imports which are not that overpriced. Certainly worth checking out.“

Ayinger in der Au (Restaurant)
MARIAHILFPLATZ 4
“We came here Thursday 22nd October 2020. It's about 20mins walk from Marienplatz or 10-12 mins using bus 52 or 62. It's a large building on Mariahilfpl so it's difficult to miss. Inside its very much traditional in style, solid wooden tables, chairs and flooring, but like the Ayinger place we also went to recently namely Wirtshaus Tannengarten it has a ceramic tile, 'green' covering the front facia of the bar. The staff were really good, traditional attire was also observed here, they looked really smart. Regarding beer and food, it was nice to see a wooden barrel being tapped at the bar and I also note that they had pretty much every core beer on tap. The beer (we had Hefe-Weisse and Dunkel Weisse) was very good. Food was excellent, ok perhaps a little more expensive than other traditional bavarian places, however it was clearly a step up from most of those places, in fact only the Schneider Weisse at Berg am Laim where we visited last week was on the same level. We had a Pork Sous vide with a Dunkel Bier gravy, and with wonderful vegetable accompaniment, and a traditional proper Wiener Schnitzel, we were super impressed. We would definitely return here again, all COVID-19 restrictions and regulations were adhered to, we had lots of space you really felt very safe here. A great find!“

Echardinger Einkehr (Restaurant)
BAD-KREUTHER STRASSE 8
“We visited here Friday 16th October 2020, we'd nipped to Baumkirchner (Ayinger) and Schneider Weisse first and arrived here around 9pm. It's a little out of the city centre, to the east, in fact about 4-5kms out and would take the better part of an hour if you walked it. However there are public transport options to the centre, Innsbrucker Ring U-Bahn is the closest stop it's about 500metres away and on the U5 to/from Odeonsplatz will take 15-20 minutes. This is a nice place, very much traditional and popular with locals, we sat on the left side as you enter and most folk on this side were just drinking. In fact there were quite a few men (all friends, I guess) drinking and having a great time. Lederhosen was being worn by a number of the locals and by the bar staff. The waiter who served us was really great, so good at his job, chatty, friendly and telling folk when they had to have last orders because of the current COVID-19 restrictions. The place inside was simply furnished, mostly wood and whilst they did food and reading the menu it looked great, this place had the feel of a real drinking venue. I had an Edelstoff which was really nice, however I wasn't so fussed about my Dunkel Weisse. Overall this place had easily the best atmosphere of the three places we visited tonight but Schneider Weisse Berg am Laim wins out with beer.“

“We visited here Friday 16th October 2020, we'd nipped to Baumkirchner (Ayinger) first and arrived here just before 7pm. It's a little out of the city centre, to the east, in fact about 4-5kms out and would take the better part of an hour if you walked it. However there are plenty of public transport options with tram 31 from Marienplatz (Theaterstrasse) the quickest route at 24 minutes, we took the U4/5 as were hitting bars before and afterwards that were nearer that route into town. It's a large building that also has a good sized biergarten at the rear. Inside its light, airy and appears to have taken a more modern look. Ttere are a number of rooms in this place. I didn't really get the opportunity to explore, as we were led from the entrance along a brightly lit corridor with Schneider Weisse beers and glasses in glass cabinets, we turned left went through a small room (mini bar area perhaps) and led into the back room which faced the Biergarten. We were given a large oval table, the place was about 60-70% full with a nice mix of young and old, male and female. Beers were excellent, I had the Hopfenweizen, Loz the Festweise and Kostas when he arrived had the alcohol free Hefe-Weisse. I also had a Eisbock, which was also fab'. The food was really nice, excellent in fact. I had a roast loin of pork with vegetables, wild mushroom sauce etc, Loz and Kostas had a Cordon bleu schnitzel, we all enjoyed the food, Kostas and I shared a Kaiserschmarrn for dessert. The staff were really nice we chatted to the female waitress who was Croatian, her English was excellent. I would definitely come here again, I am a big fan of Schneider Weisse and it's nice that they have a couple of great options in the city.“

JOSEPHSBURGSTRASSE 25
“We visited here Friday 16th October 2020 before a visit to Schneider Weisse which is less than 100 metres away on the same road. It's a little out of the centre, in fact about 4-5kms and an hour by foot, however according to Google Maps tram 31 from Marienplatz (Theaterstrasse) will get you here in 24minutes and is the quickest route however we took the U4/5 as we intended going to bars before and afterwards that were nearer that route into town. It's a good sized building that stands on the corner of it's namesake street and Josephsburgstrasse. We were only drinking so sat at the bar. Inside it had quite a cosy feel, the layout was quite traditional, with plenty of seating available. It was quite early when we arrived but a few tables were taken with people dining and it started filling up further and there was an awful lot of people coming here for takeaway food, it was doing quite a trade. We didn't have here as we already had a table reservation at Schneider Weisse but it's clear that the place was very popular for its food. The beer selection was from Ayinger and pretty well represented, I had the Altbayrisch Dunkel (in bottle) which was really nice, Loz a Hefe-Weisse from tap. Staff were friendly and also quite busy. This is a nice place that you can combine a visit with the aforementioned and close by Schneider Weisse as well as Echardinger Einkehr (Augustiner Bräu) which is what we did.“

74 /100 ALRAMSTRAßE 24
“We visited here Thursday 8th October 2020. It's a smaller than some of the big beer halls in town, however it's still a reasonable sized place that occupies a corner plot where Daiserstrasse and Alramstrasse meet. If you were in the centre *btw let's consider the centre as Marianplatz, then it's about 50 minutes by foot or 23 minutes and 4 stops on the U3/U6 get off at Implerstrasse and it's a 400-500metre walk from there. It's an Augustiner place so the beer is decent in particular I would recommend the Edelstoff. It's a nice looking building from the outside, it was dark when we visited but it looked a peachy colour with Augustiner livery. Inside its simple and adopts the classic wooden appearance with a tiled floor, the occasional mural and a creamy/light beige colour. We liked the dividers/partitions between tables which looked wooden but were in fact a solid foam like construction, really good, lightweight and offering better social distancing in these COVID-19 times. Staff were friendly and service pretty quick. We had a beer and a meal, I suspect that they would be quite happy if you just wanted a beer, there were plenty of tables and a few stools at the bar. The food was good, we had a classic burger and fries and a Roast Pork with Potato Dumplings, both good. We liked it here, prices were fair and it seems like a popular place.“

78 /100 HILDEBOLDSTRASSE 23
“We visited here Friday 25th September 2020 with Kostas and friend Katerina. This place is located about 30- 35mins north of the centre by public transport depending on the route taken (I use Marianplatz as centre). There are a few options of how to get here, such as trams 19 and then 27 followed by a short walk or the S-Bahn to München HBF followed by the U2 to Hohenzollernplatz and a short walk this is the quickest. It's on a largely residential street and for us right near Kostas's apartment which is very handy. It was evening, it was dark, a little wet and of course it's now autumn so understandably we sat inside. The layout is largely horizontal with the road, there is a dogleg to the right hand side of the bar. The bar is straight ahead as you enter, there is a little seating area outside, out the front for when the weather is better and I think that they may also have a small Biergarten? The interior is mostly laid out for diners however you are welcome to just drink here, we started by asking to just drink and then changed our minds and ate here also. The beer is from Hofbräu München and was excellent, the food also very good, prices were pretty decent, we had three main meals, one starter and 7 beers between us and it was €90. I think that we'll definitely be here again, service was swift, friendly and there was plenty of space with good social distancing.“

80 /100 PFEUFERSTRASSE 32
“We visited here Thursday 1st October 2020, it was a 15-20 minute walk from Bierkiste. It is on Pfeuferstrasse and the corner with Spitzwegstrasse. The nearest U-Bahn is probably Harras or Impelstrasse on the U6, however, Implestrasse is one stop closer to the centre so likely to be the best option, it takes 15 minutes in total from Marianplatz, comprising of 5 mins by U-Bahn and a 10 minute walk from Implestrasse. This is the route we took back last night to Garching. Wirsthaus Tannengarten is a typical building from its period, large, cream coloured exterior as I recall with a Biergarten at the rear, it was late and dark and now October so we had booked a table inside. The interior was also quite typical in that there was plenty of wood, however, the bar exterior had some nice glazed tiles on the front, there was plenty of tables and seating and in these Covid-19 times, it was very well-spaced. In short, it is really quite a smart place, we like it. The food menu was a little more limited than I would have expected, that said both my Veal Gulasch with vegetables and spatzle and Loz's Cordon Bleu Schnitzel were very good, they were both 17.90 euros. We had Kaiserschmarrm for dessert. Beer selection is from the Ayinger brewery and most of the core range was here with the lesser seen Kirbe (might have spelt that wrong) festival beer also, this is the unfiltered version of their festival beer. We liked it here and would certainly return I think, it would be nice to see what the Biergarten was like.“

“Really nice new addition to the Muenchen beer scene, we visited here Thursday 24th September 2020 and again the following week on Thursday 1st October. This is located in what is rapidly becoming a really handy Craft Beer area, I am not sure what the name of the area is but on google maps it is just south west of Glockenbachviertel and if you started here by getting off the U6 or U3 at Poccistrasse you could hit Frisches Bier, TrueBrew, HopDog and Saluki all within a simple 2-2.5km or so walk,'Saluki' is a restaurant but always has some great craft beer options, actually you could even throw Paulaner Brewhouse on Kapuziner Strasse into the mix. Anyway back to Bierkiste, its a Getrankemarkt and bar with a limited amount of seating inside (sofa at the back, table and stools inside) but about 9-10 tables outside which have now spread out into a palleted off area of the road. The inside is a dogleg shape with toilets at the rear to the left of the bar/till. There are two draft beer options at the serving area and then crates throughout with traditional offerings, i.e. Pils/Weisse/Helles etc a fridge with some Tillmans beers and then the narrow corridor at the rear has some smaller fridges with Yankee and Kraut, Frau Gruber, HopperBrau etc so expect IPAs, DIPAs, Sours, APAs etc. Prices are really, really good even for drinking in on site. I really like this place, I just wonder how it will fare in the colder months as seating inside will be very limited, I guess that it will just fall back on its Getrankemartkt credentials.“

“Airbräu has two outlets: A smaller place inside the long-distance section of Terminal 2 (H gates) and the larger place in the Central area outside of security with both a inside and outside part. All places are usually fairly busy but the service is normally reasonably fast and food & drink arrive in good time. Food is mostly bavarian classics in good quality. The beer is usually in a good condition as well and is still one of the cheapest and best options in the airport.“

“We visited here Thursday 13th August 2020 following a cycle ride from die Fasanerie. Taxisgarten was handily placed being approximately half way between there and Kostas's flat where we were staying. I have just checked public transport options and the U1 from Hbf four stops to Gern (about 6 mins) and its a 3-4 min walk from the tube. The Biergarten looked larger than die Fasanerie, but I understand that it holds 1,500 which is the same, perhaps the more regular large square/rectangular layout made it appear larger. The main building is at one end with a self serve area y there appeared to be a food hatch to the side. We sat at this bottom end giving us a good view of the rest of the Biergarten which looked really nice now strings of lights had come on. Beer was from Hofbräu München, I had the Oktoberfest Bier which had been released just a few days beforehand, Loz stuck to her choice of Hefe Weisse. Beer was good, it was quick being served, it was a very nice Biergarten.“

“We visited here Thursday 13th August 2020 we cycled from the centre but you can get close'ish' to here via public transport if needed. The S2 to München Untermenzing and then a 164 or 165 bus three stops to Untermenzinger Strasse and a 600metre walk from there. I didn't check parking but it's in an out of the way location so I expect that there would be plenty. It's a nice place, it's in a small park, there is quite a lot of outdoor seating, it seats 1,500 apparently in the Biergarten, so size wise respectable but not a biggie. There is an area close to the main building where you will get table service. We did the self service as we always tend to, the beers were from Hofbräu München and were very good and reasonably priced. It was far from full but even so there were a fair few here. We ate here and the pizzas were excellent, really good. We had another beer (well I did) and sat relaxing, it's well shaded, very chilled, staff really friendly, one of my favourite Biergartens in München thus far I reckon.“

“We visited here Thursday 6th August 2020, it's quite easy to get to we came straight from work, however the U6 to Freimann whether traveling from or to the centre is certainly the best option, it's then a 10 min walk. It's located at the toppermost end of the Englischer Garten and is in a nice area. The beers are from Hofbräu München and I had the Sommer Bier and Loz had a Hefe-Weisse. It was a popular place, food was also very popular here with a definite focus on traditional Bavarian meal choices. Social distancing, cleanliness and hygiene were pretty good but I've definitely seen others do it better. It was busy and there was as one might expect a good mixture of people types, i.e. familes, work colleagues, some tourists, locals etc. There was good shade throughout the garden and it was a big place. Wasps were a bit of an annoyance, staff were struggling to clear plates, glasses away quick emough. Not the best Biergarten but enjoyable and with pleasant walks through the Englischer Garten its well worth a visit.“

“Visited with jonas. A very busy, hip new taproom (with small pizzas that weren't there when we visited), quite popular and packed by a bunch of young people on a Friday night. The extra standing patio made it sure that we could find space away from others though. It's all about their beers, available on the 10 taps and in cans. The beers (not, at least yet, brewed there), when I visited, were all good and none thrilling, but nothing to complain about. The half liter prices were slightly higher than expected, but there's a very welcome 0.3l option, which made ticks easier. Also, there are cans to go, which are quite fairly priced too! The staff was okay - I got what I needed fast. If I was a local, this would definitely be a place I visited fairly often most likely!“

“Visited with Jonas, and I'm pretty glad we have. Modern little pub focusing on their own production (Tilmans) - 6-7 of those I think + German hop beers (a couple of Yankee & Krauts, a Hoppebräu, and a Buddelship I think when I was there). The Tilmans prices are pretty fair for München, though prices in München pretty much suck from a Prague (and even the stupidly unbalanced Croatian perspective), the other craft prices are survivable, though, if you're there for ticks, there's a 4 beer sampler board for 9 Euros, so go for that and hit the Tilmans'! Good service, speaks English. One of the beers didn't exactly taste like a "Frisches Bier", but likely not the place's fault - all others were in pretty good shape I guess! Cans/bottles available. All in all, worth visiting!“

“Visited first for a tasting with Jonas, SinH4, One51, Fin & Fin's better half, repeated the next day with Jonas, ending up in great conversation with some patrons. All in all - an excellent modern place in what's shaping up to be a pretty relevant craft beer area in München apparently. Gregor & others most certainly know what they are doing. A modern place, a bit on the dark side, but things are gonna get more lively once the interior is finished entirely. Fun decorations, great design scheme going on. The guy behind the pipes is a sommelier and a beer judge, but above all a genuine, knowledgeable beer lover, and that says it all. 10 taps, mostly excellent Franconian lagers (Ungespundet and Keesmann beers in very good shape when I was there), and there's a treasure trove of those in the fridge too (we got an excellent Mönschsambacher beer for example). Mixed in is stuff from local craft beers - Higgins, Atelier der Braukünste, Test Bräu... along with some foreign craft (Latitude 42, Victory). The taplist shows how much is (roughly) left, which is a huge plus, and the beers are bound to be kept in good shape. There's a working wi-fi, which is an enormous plus in Bavaria too. The beer prices are pretty good, München standards really. Very good customizable hot dogs too (a bit expensive at over 9 Euros, but I certainly didn't mind after I got it)! All in all, love the place and will definitely return. And so should you, especially if you're not going to Franconia - as it's a veritable oasis of Franconian treasures! How to get here... 68 or X98 currently to Baldeplatz from the Hauptbahnhof (Süd) station and then a short walk south. Quite doable in combination with Frisches Bier and True Brew.“

“Visited with Stefan. No place on the patio or inside in spite of Covid (or maybe because of it, because of the distances and stuff), went to the (also a bit busy) side bar. Sausage party, but hey. Holzfassed Augustiner Hell in almost top shape, which is nice and chuggable, and for the price (3.20?) very much not a bad deal for the city center. Classic, good looking place with a big patio otherwise and a pretty good look. Pro service. A should-visit if you're there, just get a very good Augustiner from the barrel if you don't have the time to go to Isartor. If you do - go there.“

“We visited here Friday 26th June 2020. It's located on the other side (east) of the Isar and north of the centre. We got here via a No:50 bus which dropped us off by the tram terminus at Sankt Emmeram, We came from from the U-Bahn 6 Stop at Studentenstadt, and then a short walk however the aforementioned tram which starts at Karlsplatz is likely to be the best route. It's in a nice location with parkland and walking and cycling trails going by here and it has an interesting history as an old mill dating back to the 14th century. The Beer Drinkers Guide to Munich is a little gushing about the place, O think that Loz was hoping for much better after I'd read the description to her, but regardless I liked it. The Biergarten stretches around the front and side and when I nipped to the toilet there was further seating (not in use today) around the back. Huge horse chestnut trees provide plenty of shade and the ground is like a shale stone. The beers were from the Spaten stable and were good, prices a little bit on the steep side €10.40 for a Hefe Weisse and a Dunkel Weizen was almost €3 more than our next beer garden. Overall I liked it, the food looked good, staff were pleasant and a quick peak inside showed that the building was a really nice and historic establishment. Not as good as Insel Mühle or a couple of other Biergartens but certainly worth a visit“

“Me, Loz and Kostas visited here Friday 19th June 2020. It's pretty well located, we got here via the U6 to Goetheplatz from where we walked about 10 minutes to here, there are many other transport options depending of course on the direction of travel, but it's close to True Brew and Frisches so in a good area for a mini crawl. It's simple furnishings here, you enter via a door on the right side, the bar is straight ahead with a fridge off to the left and an electronic board advertising the beer options on the left hand side behind the bar. There is a good amount of seating with tables running along the front and to the left. The toilets are downstairs. We sat outside, there are about 4-5 tables here which are capable of seating 4-6 people each. Beer choice was predominantly Franconian with a couple of local craft beer options from Higgins Ale Works and Yankee and Kraut, the beers were very good. The food is just Hot Dogs and at €9.40 I thought that without fries thats too expensive, they were fine but truth be told I probably would just go for the beer in future. I liked this place, the staff who were clearly busy were friendly, attentitive and worked hard, it was a mixed crowd here, it's a very welcome new kid on the block.“

“We visited here Friday 5th June 2020 with Kostas. This was a great find, it's in Luitpold Park, It's a little bit north of the centre probably 35-40 minutes walking. However it's only a couple of minutes walk from Schleißheimer Str or walk a few minutes across the park to Belgradestrasse and you will be at Scheißplatz from where you can get the U-Bahn or Tram. Luitpold Park is very pleasant and so is this Biergarten, it's a nice size and offers a good mix of shade and sun. Most of the seating is at the front, the main building is a large, yellow and white painted exterior, it looks quite grand, inside it houses the restaurant. The beers are from Augustiner and you head around the back of the building choose your beers and then pay before returning to the table. There was a nice mixture of ages and people types. Staff were friendly and attentitive. I didn't check out the food but I am guessing it would be quite traditional. This is one of the nicest Biergartens that I have been to in München and it's surprising that it hadn't already been listed as it looked like it's been here sometime.“

“We visited here Friday 5th June 2020, it's just around the corner from Kostas's flat so I suspect regular visits might be in the offing. It's on Ackermannstraße which is a 4minute walk from Schleißheimer Str. I guess the quickest way into town would be to walk through Luitpold Park (you could have a quick beer in Bamberger Haus Biergarten) to Scheißplatz and get the U-Bahn or Tram from their, however it's a pleasant enough walk straight down Schleißheimer Str. The shop is located on the main road and with a ramp at the entrance offers disabled access. Most of the interesting beers were on the shelving to the left hand side, there is a counter here but I was allowed to walk behind it to browse. All of the beers appear to be German and most from my still limited knowledge look to be from Bavaria. There seem to be a fair number that I have not seen anywhere else. Prices are excellent, I picked up three beers for a grand total of €4.24. I like this place and whilst it is never likely to offer a selection like Biervana (which is a 20-25 minute walk away) it will offer a much better selection of local beers.“

“We visited here Friday 22nd May 2020 with Xenofon and Kostas, we were on our first beer trip in Munich since the slight relaxation of the Covid-19 lockdown rules, in fact 10 weeks to the day! Flaucher is in a lovely setting, close to the Isar in a very green area with plenty of trees and walking and cycling trails. Getting here wasn't too bad, the 54 bus was our preferred route back but the U3 Brudermühlestrasse stop isn't far away and offers an alternative option, though a cycle ride or walk along the Isar would also be nice. I understand that this is one of the oldest Biergartens in the city though dating back to 1871 doesn't seem particularly old. The Biergarten is large, very popular and frequented by a wide range of ages and people type all of whom I am sure were like us, just keen on getting out to visit a bar and have a beer. The signing in process (COVID-19 requirements) was quite quick and getting a beer similar. I understand from the previous poster that there were beers on tap, however I only saw bottles, perhaps I didn't look hard enough. We spent a good hour and a half here and really enjoyed the atmosphere. If you find yourself in this area of town in the summer months I would thoroughly recommend a visit here, I preferred Insel Mühle where we were earlier but this was also very good.“

Insel Mühle (Restaurant)
VON-KAHR-STRASSE 87
“We visited here Friday 22nd May 2020 with Xenofon and Kostas, this was our first beer in Munich since the slight relaxation of the Covid-19 lockdown rules, in fact 10 weeks to the day! Getting here is not too difficult to find, it's to the west of the city, so we got here via the U3 to Moosach and then the X80 bus which drops you practically opposite the entrance, however heading back to town we took the 164 bus (165 also runs this route) and then then the U1 at Westfriedhof. Insel Mühle is located alongside the Würm river, the Biergarten is apparently on a small island within the confluence of the river, we weren't sat by the water and didn't wander around other than to get a beer so cannot confirm. As with most of the Biergartens it is well shaded, large and on a warm day like today popular. The COVID-19 restrictions means that it's open from 12:00-20:00 and before entering you fill in your details, name, address etc. Staff were friendly and despite having to wear a facemask and the tables being more sparsely positioned it soon all seemed very normal. Beer choice was from the Augustiner range, prices were good and service swift. Kostas didn't hear (understand) the barman check if he wanted a halb oder Maß Kostas asked for small and the barman cheekily noting his lack of German, ah..a kiddie's measure. We liked this place and I would have happily stayed here longer, it's worth the trek out from the centre of town especially if the weather is good.“

“Visited Friday 6th March 2020, first time here and perhaps a little off the beaten track for many folk visiting München, however looking on the map it is only 15mins walk from Giesenger. I got the tram from Karlsplatz, I think that it was the 17or18. I haven't had a good look around, however the centrepiece here is the semi circular copper clad bar with two large copper brewing vessels behind, a staircase that offers a viewing gallery and just lots of modern and old intermingling. I am sat in the semi circular 'bar' area, there is a more formal eating area at the front and behind me what appears to be snob screens to separate. Hundreds of glasses are stacked on the bar, its quite quiet and yet I am waiting for an age to be served (table service btw) the two men to my left give up and leave. Once served I am approached twice more by staff asking if I want a beer/food etc. I like it, the beer is fine but not as good as the parent companies standard range. I would visit again.“

“Visited 3/3/2020. Early evening. Very busy with diners. Original intention had been just to have a couple of beers but as the range of their own beers was pretty good and the food menu looked decent too we stayed longer. Service was good. Their beers were ok. Enjoyed the food. Not expensive. Worth a look if in area, it’s about 10 or so minutes walk from the Munich Tap so worth combining with that.“

“Visited 26/2/2020. Liked this place. Very warm welcome and really good service over our couple of hours there (though turned out it was one of the staff’s first today so maybe they finally got rid of Fin’s ‘face like a slapped arse’ employee). 8 taps. Bit pricy. Maybe 100 different bottles. Berlin breweries featured well. 8 beers featured from the brewery next door. Food menu was good and certainly made me wish I’d not given up red meat at the start of 2020 (but I didn’t give in). Bottle range is mostly German but also feature some Polish, Belgian and US beers plus a small (and slightly obscure) range from UK. Cosy warm environment. Bit smoky from the food. I’d recommend a visit. PS - it's not advertised but found out take-out bottles are 50% off making the prices much more acceptable.“

Saluki (Restaurant)
THALKIRCHNER STR. 130
“We (myself, Loz and Jonas) visited Saluki on the evening of the Cloudwater Tap Takeover at Frisches Bier, Wednesday 12th February 2020. I was unaware of this area until recently, however there is a very good fishmongers almost opposite and a great Turkish supermarket also very close by. The easiest way to get to/from here is via the U3 or 6 at Implerstrasse, however we walked the relatively short distance from Frisches. The place was a rectangular in line with the street type layout with the bar/serving area off to the right hand side, the front was mostly glass. I think that there may have been 8-10 tables? I was amazed that this place was so busy on a Wednesday night, we took the last remaining table. The food looked great and we wasted no time in ordering a pizza each, they were excellent. The beer choice was surprisingly good for a restaurant and whilst there were some beers that were a little pricey there was also some very good beers at very reasonable prices, I cannot remember everything they had but the focus was on the smaller independent producer. We really liked it here, great food, great beer and great service in a very pleasant environment. “

Wirtshaus Eder (Restaurant)
GOLLIERSTRASSE 83
“We visited Wirsthaus Eder, Sunday 9th February 2020, we got here via bus from Paulaner, Kapuziner Str, so this wouldn’t necessarily be a route that others would take from the centre. So getting here, I note that Google Maps suggests the S7 from Marienplatz and to get off at Heimeranplatz which is a 5 min and 450 metre walk away, or alternatives are the U6 to Odeonsplatz and then U5 to Heimeranplatz, or the S7 to Donnersbergerbrucke and then a bus to Gollierplatz, the latter is slightly longer in terms of overall time but will get you within 280 metres, 3 mins walk. In terms of appearance, it was dark when we arrived and we stopped here en-route to a gig by Balthazar at Backstage Werk, however the area appeared to be mostly residential and quite a pleasant, the building was amongst a number of houses (I think?) on Gollierstrasse. Inside it looked like one of those places that has had a recent makeover, though retained a lot of original features. Parquet floors, wooden panelling (painted green) and a very simple but clean and slightly upmarket look. It seemed to be rectangular in shape with the bar off to the right and the layout parallel with the street upon which it resided. They were more than happy for us to just have a drink here and so we sat on high stools at the bar, there were a few others here doing the same as us. There were a few groups of people eating and whilst the clientele seemed to be erring towards a younger, perhaps middle class group, there was a good mix of ages, gender and race. I had a Yankee & Kraut Woda Portowa, Imperial Baltic Porter which at €4.90 for a 0.3l 10.5% beer was in my eyes exceedingly good value for money. They also had Tillmans Helles, Tillmans Dunkel, Crew Republik – In Your Face, Schronramer Helles and a Radler on tap with a not too shabby bottle list either with the likes of Aventinus, Maxlrainer etc on offer, It is worth noting that one of the taps (the Yankee and Kraut) was always changing and the Crew Republik was a permanent tap of theirs. The staff were exceedingly friendly as were the other customers that we spoke with. Located where it is I am not sure how regular I will be here, but it is certainly not far from the aforementioned gig venue and perhaps I may explore this area further to see what else is around here?“

“Has been one of my favorite beer brewpubs in the world. Been coming here for years. The beer prices are like a village pub and not like an airport. Can’t miss this place if you are in the airport. You would be surprised how much beer is served here for breakfast. “

“Loz and I visited here, Sunday 9th February 2020, we had been to Giesinger Brauerei first and then walked here, it wasn't far, probably 15-20 mins at most. I am not that familiar with this end of town so transport options I wouldn't be so sure about, but I guess the U3 is quite close to here, just checked Google maps and can see that the Brudermuhlstrasse is only 350metres away and this will take you straight to the centre. It is quite a large place located on the corner of a large junction and looking across to the large electricity plant across the road, there is a beer garden which if you look at the numerous certificates inside the pub appears to have won lots of awards, why I am not sure as it looked quite grubby to me (*though to be fair it is winter). The staff appeared Asian and therefore traditional Bavarian dress was not on display here, however other than that interior and beer choice was traditional with Augustiner on offer and lots of wood in the interior, the lights were strange though and there seemed to be all manner of adornments hanging from the ceiling, such as trumpets etc there was also some large glittery type Xmas decorations but I am sure that they weren't festive. My Edelstoff was fine but Loz's Hefe-Weisse was a little disappointing. There were lots of folks in here, it was hard to get a table all of them were all playing some card based board game in groups of four, it appeared to be a league or competition and no one spoke as they played. There was another large room off to the side which appeared to be a dancehall/theatre type room. We stayed just for the one beer, before heading north towards Frisches (which was closed today for some reason). So all in all this is an ok place but not somewhere that I would go out of my way to get to.“

Muenchner Stubn (Restaurant)
BAYERSTRASSE 35
“We visited here Friday 6th February 2020 in the company of Kostas. Another very easy place to find as it is very close to Munich HbF (across the road) which offers up so many transport options. It's another of the big München Breweries large drinking holes but certainly offers up the convenience of that last beer before the train home. It's more food orientated but they are more than happy to let those who only want a beer drink here. It's very large inside with lots of tables, there are a couple of rooms off of the main space, we sat in one of these, with lots of wood, numerous small deer antlers up high on the walls with paintings up high also. After 6pm (I think?) they served beer from the wooden cask, we had one of these and I finished with a Salvator. Waiters (because I saw only males) wore traditional clothing, service was quick and very friendly, prices were a little more expensive but I guess that is to be expected owing to the location. I liked it here.“

“We visited here Friday 6th February 2020 in the company of Kostas and Xenofon. It is easy to find, it is very close to Munich HbF and so many transport options and it's pretty much on the corner of Marsstrasse and Dachauer Str, and is next door to Café Kosmos and Slemani Grill ⬅️ btw here they do really great kebabs, and the bread is made in a tandoor type oven downstairs. It's a small'ish' place, the bar is at the rear with the large shiny metal beer tanks (3) all under the counter behind glass/perspex. The beer is very good and relatively inexpensive, I paid €11.20 for four beers. The crowd were mixed sex, mixed ages and I guess a further mix of after work and the Friday night going out crowd. We had a couple of beers here, it was a nice atmosphere, we all enjoyed the beer and it was a great new find thanks to Jonas 👍. We will definitely return. I would explain the interior but the lighting was subdued and it was busy, there was a mixture of tables and seating and leaners, we had the latter.“
