A must. Just trust me. A must. The beer flows and the people drink and the laughs roll.

This is a monestary where the beer is brewed by monks (monks also make bread... you can view the cellar bread market by St. Peters cemetary where the small river (creek) comes down into down). Augustiner Brau has three or four large beer halls, resembling Hofbrauhaus in Munich.

The process: You walk in and pick a mug from the shelves (pick the size mug you want for the rest of the night) then there are little fountains of ice cold water near by where you should rinse your mug out quickly just to make sure it is clean. Then, you'll approach the cash register and pay for however many drinks you wish and receive a receipt. Take the receipt a couple steps to your right and show it to the guy at the kegs and he'll pour you your first, second or third beer, etc. Enjoy.

They have a couple places inside to purchase food at, but you are also allowed to bring your own food, so many Austrians bring picnic baskets full of food and just buy the beer. Try it.
