If the sun does return to give us a good old fashioned Indian summer (does that exist in Munich?), I wil definitely at some point end up at the Augustiner Keller Beer Garden. This is the beer garden that I go to more than any other beer garden in Munich. It’s only about a five minute bike ride from my apartment, so that’s the obvious reason, but it also just turns out that nearly every sunny summer evening someone sends out a message that he/she is at the Augustiner Keller, and anyone who’s in the neighborhood should come by, just for one beer…
What distinguishes the Augustiner Keller? Well, it’s enormous. And if you have kids, it has an awesome playground on a hill in one corner of the beer garden. It’s a great place for public viewing, as they set up several screens around the garden for big games/events. They have really good Steckerlfisch (not every beer garden has Steckerlfisch, and it’s my fave). And, well, it just is.
Any visitors who come to visit me in Munich, this is fair warning. We'll probably end up going to the Augustiner Keller Beer Garden at least once. And trust me, that's a good thing.
