Another brewhouse in Munich: Augustiner Brau

And you thought Monday;s brewhouse in Munich is old when it was founded in 1589. Today's entry is about a brewhouse which is even older.

The Augustiner Brau has been existance since 1294...more than 700 years! I visited the establishment in the pedestrian district of Munich one evening



Inside, it was large as well...huge halls with rows on rows of tables.



Looks like this is the style of Bavarian beer houses. So the beer?



I had the Edelstoff...a bright beer...sparkling, refreshing. Very nice.

And the food? I had a roast chicken...



Well, it felt like a whole chicken...when in fact it was half...the bird was huge, but expertly roasted. Crispy skin, smooth, tender meat. Great chicken.

And another beer house in Munich worth visiting...and not just on Oktoberfest.
