Hofbräuhaus, Munich

Image by Debra Schroeder

No visit to Munich, Germany would be complete without a visit to Hofbräuhaus, the most famous beer hall in the world.

Dissatisfied with the quality of beer being brewed in Munich, Duke Wilhelm V established the Hofbräuhaus in 1589. To this day, the Hofbräuhaus is still state-owned.

The Hofbräuhaus has grown from a simple brewery to a brewery and restaurant capable of serving up to 3,000 visitors at a time. Not content with being contained in Munich, the Hofbräuhaus has expanded and been franchised worldwide in places such as Genova, Italy; Stockholm, Sweden; Seoul, Korea; Newport, Kentucky; Las Vegas, Nevada; Miami Beach, Florida; Chicago, Illinois; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and even the Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok.

Unique to the Hofbräuhaus in Munich are two racks of beer stein safes, installed in 1970 at the bequest of guests who desired a safe, separate storage area for their personal beer steins. With space for only 424 steins total, a locker is (and will remain) a highly coveted status symbol.

Regulars and visiting guests are kept entertained while awaiting their brew by the oom-pah band, outfitted in lederhosen, playing everything from traditional Bavarian music to current hits.

The Hofbräuhaus is open daily at 9 a.m., including Christmas Day.

Ok, so "gofurry" is Fred, and SurfP is...?

July 31, 2009

Nope. gofurry is not Fred - whoever that is......Don't worry, keep it furry!

July 31, 2009

Deutschland ROCKS! You can also go to the Englisher Garden Park and enjoy your beers on picnic tables and listen to the bands also. PROST!!

July 23, 2009

Yes, da Deutschland ROCKS man! (SP doing his best gofurry juvenille imitations)

Oh, and PROST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

July 23, 2009

Spaten isn't too shabby, either.

Can't forget Dinkel Acker Brau - or is that Dinkle Aker Brau?

Aug. 17, 2009

So, gofurry is fred, Dinkel Acker Brau is Dirk Diggler, and who's on first, or is it I Dunno on Second?...and SDaniels is antigeek....and tikicult is tikigod, spliffadams is pokemon and.....storyteller is mindy....jesus, who really cares?

Maybe some people are creating multiple accounts, maybe not. But who really cares?

I'm not at all furry, and Czech beer is, in my never humble opinion, better than German beer.

Though it's extremely tempting, I've still not used a pseudonym here since registration has been required for posters.

And, yes, it's my real name.

Best,

Fred

Gofurry is NOT Fred. Gofurry IS a Deutschlandlieber who likes Germany so much that I'd work for the German National Tourist Board for free if they'd let me. I can't help but to come back to this blog and keep it going! Everyone should visit "The Land of Ideas" at least once in their life.Yeah, if you need to go over to the Czech Republic to Plzen and down a few, that's OK too. When you come back to D-land, try the Riesling from the vintners on the Mosel River. Bernkastel-Kues is a great place to stop. Go there now during the wine festival - you won't be sorry.

Board BSed:

"SDaniels is antigeek"

You know better than that. It's a shame you're having to go all the way back to last month to find stuff to poke at Daniels about, though. Kinda pathetic, really.

"Maybe some people are creating multiple accounts, maybe not. But who really cares?"

Some people?
