I am not a beer drinker but the rest of my party loved the beer. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was delicious. The wait staff were all very friendly and accommodating. It was a great experience, not to be missed.

We had an early dinner and a couple beers after walking about 25 minutes from our hotel (some of that time was due to us being turned around). Excellent beer - traditional dark for me - and roasted sausages! The bar area was charming and...More

The only reason I rated this a 3 star is because we didn't get a chance to really experience this place like we wanted. We didn't know that they didn't do brewery tours every day. They only do them on certain days and we went...More

This was an interesting tour especially for those who brew their own beer. One sees the process of production.

Absolute unique location with good feeling just once stepped in. The most ancient brewery in the world welcomes you during Oktoberfest Fest time with outstanding beer available just in the concurrent weeks. Wonderful experience working around a middle knuckle of pork baked. Together with 2...More

The tour was all in English - You should not have any difficulty at all! We did not spend a lot of time in the town as we were coming for just the tour from Munich.
