Visited in November 2018. The outside was shut, due to the cold and Christmas Market, so sat inside at the bar. I had two 500ml beers, Weizen bock and and Helles, both were reasonable, and incredible value at 2.75 euros each. The service was quick and efficient and the bar man even gave me an unprompted sample of the Christmas special beer, just thrust it over at me after I paid the bill. The chap next to me had food and said it was good, I didn't have time and concentrated on the beer. It's fun and a great place to stay, I would imagine if your flight is delayed!
nice idea, but an airport is too busy for such a room to relax for a beer, the beer-sortiment is poor (when we were there in 2013 there was just one house-beer on tap), food ist quite expensive and not the best, toilets and room is clean
There are actually several Airbräu location at the Munich airport it turned out. There is one past security check near the terminals and there is a restaurant & beer garden outside near the shopping centre and another bar / restaurant right next to it. Massive in true Bavarian style. The restaurant was eating only so we visited the more classical bar / restaurant combo next to it. Low artificial feel to the place, service is efficient foremost. It does the trick for sure. About 3 beers available, we tried 2 they are okay-ish, no big flaws but definitely nowhere near top and at surprisingly good prices. Very far from essential but a place that understandably everyone decides to tick when they are at the airport.
So, it's in an airport terminal, so there's some obvious negatives ... inflated prices, dumb American tourists, possibilities for crowds. But given the circumstances, I'm glad this place is here. It is a relatively reasonable representation of traditional Bavarian brewpubs, if a bit kitschy. And like most brauhauses in the region, they only have the requisite three beers ... pils, helles, weizen. The beers are pretty good. There's a decent Bavarian menu, typically overpriced ... but it's in the airport. Brewery #855.

We spent a couple of hours here Thursday 6th September 2018, both drinking and eating. We were in Munich for three days visiting Loz's new workplace (Helmholtz). We were staying at the Hilton Hotel at the airport (5mins walk) as our flight times to and from were quite late Thursday and very early Sunday. This place is really quite big and is located partly in terminal 2 but also spreading out into the central covered area that links terminals 1 and 2.
We sat in the central area and ordered beers off of the menu card, unfortunately there were no specials available, however we were ordering from the central bar, so the inside bar may have a greater choice? I think that Loz had a Hefeweizen and I had a lager style called Jetstream or something like that. The place was about half full, staff were really busy visiting the many tables and serving food and drink, for those just wanting a drink there was space by the outside bar (stools) but I am sure that if it isn't a too busy you could sit in the area usually reserved for eating.
Loz had rump steak and potato (wedges?), I had pork, turkey and beef medallions, with a mushroom sauce and chips. The food was pretty good and reasonably priced, I had a another beer and we just sat chatting. This didn't seem like a typical airport bar, we rather liked it.
The best part about this brewpub is location - getting a fresh beer on a way home (as well as upon arrival) is a nice concept. Sadly it doesn't go beyond nice concept here as brews are rather weak (especially given the fact that it's Munich airport after all!).
After the yearly visit of approximately 30 breweries I end up at AirBräu befor going home. The selection is not as big as most places I visit and the view is not as nice as the nice beir-gartens and bier stuben but it is probably the best place in the airport for a beer.
Big place, and a bit of a bustle because of that, but the service was sharp. Pleasant enough decorative wooden interior helps you relax. Dunkel and Hefeweisse were lovely, the Hell was pretty decent too - certainly no corners being cut here, and they take pride in what they serve. I must admit I do like the idea of such airport brewpubs, this certainly increases Munich’s value as a via airport.
