  just how many maibocks did I have? ;=>
by richiecdisc

This was my favorite beer garden on my most recent trip to Munich. It's a lovely and classic example of the style, with big leafy trees, great self service food stands, and huge mugs of Hacher-Pschorr beer to wash it all down with.

Favorite Dish: I had a quite reasonable meal of Schweinebraten (roast pork) inside for 8.60 Euros on my first trip as it was not nice out, but on a return visit, I found the best place (and cheapest) to eat is outside. All typcial bavarian treats are on offer including huge pretzels and liter mugs of beer. It was maibock season so the golden bock beer was on tap. It's deceptively strong and full of malt and hops for a lip-smacking taste. Hint: go in May! Beer and food are much cheaper than at many of the other big beer gardens too.
