What You Will Do
- Start off your night with a few glasses at the Euro Youth Hotel Bar where you'll get acquainted with your guide and fellow beer-explorers
- Set off to tour a number of beer gardens— these traditional drinking spots have long benches where you'll pull up a seat and tip back a glass of delicious brew
- Take your pick of traditional Bavarian foods at your first stop to get some savory eats in your stomach
- Guided beer garden tour
- Visit to four beer gardens
- Three free drinks (beers or cocktails) at the Euro Youth Bar
- Shot of Jaegermeister
Some beer gardens are behind the times in terms of credit card machines so some cash (Euro 30) would be great to bring along. Please don't wear fancy dress, as the beer gardens wont let you in. Groups must be eight guests or less.

The tour guide Lauren was good, I would give this tour top ratings if we could stay at each bar for at least an hour, it was hard to guzzle down a litre of beer in 30 mins.
This tour was fun! Our group was really big so I know some group members got lost, go during the week! So much fun, so much wow.
Excellent guide and great time. Do this early on your stay. You may meet some new friends to join for drinks during your stay. Also helps to learn which stops you prefer to stop at. Great time, you learn about Munich brew history and very reasonable priced! JP
This tour is a great time! Our tour guide promoted fun and friendliness. We drank great beer, learned a little bit, met many new friends, and had an amazing night out exploring local beer halls.
Small very friendly group of people. The tour guide Dani was both passionate and knowledgeable in her Bavarian bier history.
Had a wonderful time! I didn't prepare myself for sooooo much wonderful beer! although it was my fault, I did not eat enough to absorb the beer. Overall fantastic guide! it was great meeting new people and drinking the best beer in the World!
Less time at he beer garden and go to more of them
Tour was well organized and a fun way to meet other like-minded tourists and see places I might not have found on my own. One suggestion would be to have two tour guides when the group is large. I've done a similar tour in Sofia, Bulgaria, and they had two tour guides. It helped keep the group together and keep things running smoothly.
Gary was an excellent tour guide, but I would have liked to visit more than 2 beer halls.
Accepting credit card would make things easier. Also the last bar was more of a club than a brewery, which was not what we expected.
This tour was fabulous! Upon arrival, we were given three free drink coupons each for the hostel bar (which basically covers the 15 euro cost of the tour, so the tour itself is pretty much for free). The tour was scheduled to start at 6:45, but they give you about a half hour so they can get everyone registered and ready to go. I was thankful for that because I was a few minutes late after misreading my map and taking a wrong turn. We had Dani as our tour guide and she was excellent. We walked to the first biergarten, Augustiner-Keller, and Dani gave us some history on it and took us down into the basement (down a very winding staircase), where we sat at picnic tables and got our 1 liter steins (but don't call them steins in Germany, they have no idea what you're talking about). We moved on to the next biergarten, Lowenbrau, a large hall with a very famous 14% beer. The first two biergartens were wonderful because they were traditional Bavarian beer halls, where the regulars were clad in lederhosen and "beer wench" dresses that American girls don for Halloween. This was a Saturday night out for these people and it was so much fun to be a part of such a different atmosphere. Dani gave us more history on our continuing walk and I was a little drunk by then, but I learned a lot and made quite a few friends. The last stop was just a regular bar, then we made our way back to the Euro Youth Hostel, where we finished the night with another beer. I had been a little concerned because one of the girls in my group doesn't drink all that much and came along more for the company than the beer. I'd read one review that said the guides just order for everyone, but that was hardly the case. Dani asked who wanted a beer and we raised our hands; nothing was forced on us if we were too full or if we wanted to try a different beer than recommended. Dani even went out of her way to suggest something different for my friend, who ended up with some type of cider that she really enjoyed. Overall, it turned out to be a wonderful night with a lot of fun people and a lot of good beer. If ever again I am in Munich, I will not hesitate to book this tour a second time and hope to get Dani as my guide!
Dani was good and the beer was great. However, the 3rd location didn't seem to fit a "beer" tour and no food was provided. It would have been nice to have more history and food involved.
It was a really awesome experience. It exceeded my expectations and i really enjoyed the learning about the history and traditions. Also as a tourist i dont think i would have found the places we went so it was truely special. Thanks Tim and Shadow!
