  The Löwenbräu Brewery

The Löwenbräu Brewery goes back one way or another to the late 1300s. Now (well, for decades) the largest brewer in Munich and known throughout the world, you can imagine that the brewery is a magnet for thirsty college students, er, students intent on furthering their cultural education.

I have no idea how Löwenbräu handles tours today, but in the 1970s, the brewery would run tours Monday through Friday. The last tour would be about 11 a.m. on Friday morning, which meant that after we arrived in Munich about 7 a.m., we had to find a room at a pension, dump our stuff, then run over to the brewery in time to make the last tour.

Why? Because at the end of the tour, they would herd us into a small restaurant and give us bread, wurst, and two half liters of beer – each. This is a Godsend to hungry college students traveling on a budget!

Like I said, I have no idea if they still do this, but if so, it's worth the trip for anyone on a budget...
