Went on the Beer and Brewery tour yesterday and had a great time! Our Australian guide, Rory, is already a brewer and is studying to become a brewmaster (so that he can teach people about beer!). He was EXTREMELY knowledgable and very patient when I asked him a million questions. His passion for beer was clearly evident - and contagious! :)
We started at Augustiner am Dom for delicious Helles, Edelstoff or Weissbier (included in the tour) outside in the sun with a great view of the Frauenkirche. Then went two stops by metro to a Paulaner brewery (not the main brewery, but one of its locations) to learn about the brewing process. So cool to walk through the different rooms and see an actual beer being made! Again, Rory really knew his stuff, and we all learned a lot. Then the Paulaner biergarten for another beer (included in the tour) and dinner or a snack if you wanted (not included). Favorites were the unfiltered Helles - only available at that location and it was AMAZING - and the Falsch Russ'n - a Weissbier that was fruity, with grapefruit/citrus flavor but without lemonade - highly recommended! Then took metro two stops to the Hofbrauhaus where we saw staff members snapping whips in time to the music on the ground floor - so cool! We walked through the top floor to see the Festhall and then found a table outside in the biergarten. We all got masses of Helles (not included in tour) and stayed until they closed and kicked us out at midnight.
Had a lot of fun getting to know the other six people on the tour. A really great night!! I highly recommend this tour!!!
