I used to live 40 miles west of Munich for 4 years (in Augsburg). Every time I ever went to Munich I always went to the Hofbrauhaus.
A lot of the seats on the trains to Munich during the fest are reserved. It may be difficult to get tickets.
I used to stay at a farmhouse about 25 miles south of Munich instead of Garmisch...(at the time (up to 2004) a room was only 13 Euros per person w/breakfast versus $80 in Garmisch).
You may be better off staying in Idar-Oberstein...
