Munich's Beer Halls and Breweries: 3-Hour Guided Tour
- Duration: 3.5 hours
This is a great overview of beer history and the founding of the city overall. Our guide was great and seeing the process start to finish in an smaller brewery was a great way to learn and also eventually drink!! Because it ends in the Hofbrauhaus you may be pressed for a table if you plan on eating there, but that's no fault of our guides. This is not a 'party' brew tour, more of a historical/informative one.
The guide (Andreas) did a great job taking us around, and showing us the workings of the small Pauliner brewery. It was cool to have a beer that was made onsite. The other spots were okay, though the tour realistically involves just one brewery, plus a stop at a cafe for dinner, with us able to go into Hofbrau Haus for our own beer after the tour. A fun evening activity still.
I forgot the name of our guide. Sorry. But he’s from Ireland. (I’m so sorry, I forgot your name). He was very knowledgable about the beers that we tried. I learned a lot about the different kinds Of beer, the ingredients, and the history. I would love to do this tour again if I visit Munich next time. Thank you for the experience.
The tour is an great way to learn about Munich beer culture. It’s also a really nice way to meet people over 3 hours. It was exactly what I wanted (sociable and informative). There are a couple of free drinks (at the time of this review). Our guide Noel Byrnes was excellent. I cannot recommend this enough.
Great guide. We went to Paulaner. Would have liked to see the Hofbraus, by still a pretty good tour. We ended at Oktoberfest, so it was overall a great experience.
