If you go a little south of Muenchen, try to find any beers by a brewery called Kaltenberg. Their Helles and Koenig Ludwig Dunkel will blow your mind.

It's cool and foggy. I went to Augsburg today and am back in the hotel to work on my training material for tomorrow morning. Then it's off to dinner and a few Weihenstephan Weissbiers.

Saturday is supposed to be sunny. I'll head downtown to the Weihnachtsmarkt to check things out, have a few Weissbiers and perhaps a döner or two.

The Rathaus (and Ratskeller) is right across the street next to the Perlach Turm. The statur/fountain of Augustus Caesar is interesting as well as the Hercules Brunn down the street. Behind the Rathaus check out the Fuggerei. It's pretty famous, named after Jakob Fugger. The Fugger and Welscher museums are nice also. As is the Roman museum not far away for the Chritmasmarket.

Viel spass!!

Ok, last night I headed into town and stopped into JW Augustiner Brauhaus. This place caters to locals and not the tourists. They've been brewing beer since 1328. It's hard to believe they are going on 700 years of brewing nectar of the gods.

Here's a shot from sitting at the bar looking at the entrance. It's covered in Hops.



Here the bartender pouring another glass of Augustiner Helles. I asked him if the barrel was real since I thought it was nothing more than a fancy German Jocky Box.



He said it was real and to prove it to me, he showed me his backup stock. This brings "Kegging" to a new level.



After that, I headed over to the Hofbrau Haus to check on a couple from Cincinnati that I ran into on the train. I had to tell them I ran into another guy from Cinci where I was drinking. What a small world. I don't care much for the Hofbrau beer and neither does the big guy in the middle of this picture. He was sitting next to me at Augustiner drinking beer & pear schnapps before his gig.



It was a fun evening. Now I'm faced with a weekend here. I'm going to head up the the Weihenstephan brewery tomorrow to see if they have any tours.

It is catty corner to the Hofbrau Haus and across from the Munich Hard Rock.

Here's the web site (the english version)
http://www.augustiner-am-platzl.de/english.htm

I'm heading back there for dinner. They have their own in house butcher shop and their beer tastes great and is priced right (2.40 euros per .5L compared to 4.00 euros elsewhere).

I have to choose this thread for my first post. I was over there for Oktoberfest this year. What a party... it was amazing. The next time anyone is over there, you have to get to Andechs Monastery.

When I was in Muenchen, it was nothing more than a day-trip. I think we took the S-bahn to the end of the line and then a bus to the monastary. GREAT beer... GREAT food. The monks there have been around since 1455.

I highly recommend it. Klainmeister is right about the Koenig Ludwig as well... so tasty.

I've had Ludwig that I bought in the store in Illinois and it was pretty tasty. I can only imagine how good it would be fresh.

I've been to Andechs many times. Love their beer and the crowd. I've stayed in a farmhouse many times just south of there in Kochel am See.
