Time Out says
Another Munich institution, the Augustiner Keller has been pouring foaming ales since 1812 and continues to win numerous awards for its fine Bavarian tradition and cuisine. There’s outdoor seating for 5,000 beneath the garden’s glorious chestnut trees, and plenty of warm interior rooms for colder days, including the atmospheric, vaulted-ceiling “keller.” The beer is stored in and served directly from giant wooden barrels and—Achtung!—is available in one-litre steins only. The noisy crowds can be a little daunting for first-timers, but just find a spot at one of the communal tables and you’ll soon be chinking glasses long into the night. Not sure what to order? Go with the Augustiner helles, a crisp, light lager and a classic Munich beer.
