Do all tourists go to the Hofbrauhaus? They should. Do non-beer drinking tourists go there? They should and have brezen (pretzles) and try a weissbier once. For our 17 year olds, a liter of beer (ein mass) without having to produce an ID card was the highlight of their first European trip that they remember 10 years later--and they bought the steins to prove it! And the Bavarian band played on and was it noisy! (and it was the night before Christmas Eve). On our previous trips to Munich, we had bypassed this for more sedate brewery-restaurants with better (?) food, especially slices of Leberkas. That may have been a mistake. This is one tourist trap that is worth the effort but you must like crowds.
