Last visited on Monday 16/07/12 around 6pm. Place was fairly busy but we found a table inside.
The place to come for Andechs beers if you don’t have the time/inclination to head out to the monastry.
The manager (seeing me making some notes) came over and ended up chatting for 5 minutes about beer culture etc. Really nice guy and dozens of pictures of him on the staircase and in the basement with heaps of famous people.
Good ambiance! Food is delicious but pricy. Service is germanly fast as one could expect, efficient in busy times. Some good beers on and best is to go for is of course the stuff from Andechs. Well kept and cared for. Nice place!
Totally packed on the inside but had about 50 open seats under the umbrellas outside. A literal stone’s throw from the Dom, as well as an Augustiner and the Nürnberger Bratwurst Glöckl (both of which were much busier in their outside sections - better views?). I’m convinced the DBD tastes significantly different on tap; today, it was fresh and young-tasting, the major difference being the cherry flavor, which is just an element out of the bottle, but dominant here.
Packed place, didn’t intend to go there first but somehow we ended up there. The interior seemed quite nice but we ended up outside. Service... I ask if they have any seasonal beers, the guy almost starts patronizing us, brings the English menu and starts explaining the regular lineup. Gee, thanks. It was a yes or no question. Got the (quite nice) beers relatively fast considering the crowd, and we were constantly asked something, if we want some pretzels, if we will drink more. Ok. In the end it seems that the guy either wanted to screw us over or he thought we’ll leave him a tip larger than the bill. I mean what the hell? Still, let’s just call this a misunderstanding and I won’t lower the service rating. Eh, I’d go there again anyway. They are one of the only ones fair enough to offer both a small and a big beer (and theirs are pretty good), the place’s great on the inside too.
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 couldn’t find a place to sit inside on a December weeknight, so we took a table outside. The staff wasn’t 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.
