If I write that I love Paulaner Brauhaus, it will be only part of the truth. I’m visiting this place always when I’m in Munich.
For the first time in Paulaner Brauhaus, I was probably in 2007. Yes, it was the year 2007, I worked in Vogel Burda Communications (it was publishing house with Chip magazine in portfolio), and I flew to the Bavarian capital to our HQ. I stayed at the Hotel Brack (click the name, read about this hotel more) and it was very convenient because I was able to get to an office in the 7-minute walk from hotel. Roughly the same time it took to reach the Paulaner Brauhaus – so it would be a sin not to check. So I checked and I don’t regret.
If someone asks you about the traditional Bavarian restaurant, just tell him about Paulaner Brauhaus. There is everything you need.
Firstly, the right climate – no unnecessary ornaments and trinkets, rather austere decor:
That’s what on the above picture is one of the rooms, but somehow it just so happens that I tend to usually right here, so I will focus on this point (for the record, let me add that it is also a beer garden outside). Normally these voids are probably only in the morning, because roughly from h. 16:00 starting to be a lot of people. Around 18:00 there are a lot. From 20:00 is full.
The waitresses and waiters are dressed in traditional Bavarian clothes – the ones you certainly have seen even during the tv coverage from Oktoberfest. And the similarity of the Oktoberfest on does not stop there.
And that’s because the Paulaner Brauhaus serves excellent beer. Beside the beer which is evident at that place – Paulaner (and it is worth noting that Paulaner tastes best right here) – you can drink some seasonal local, brewed on the place beers. If you have drunk Paulaner that you bought in some shop abroad Munich, you do not know the real taste of Paulaner. I wrote you can? You have to, you definitely need because people in Paulaner Brauhaus really know how to make a good beer. Oh, listen to waitress / waiter – if she/he proposes you specific seasonal beer, don’t think too long and try it. And once you get it you can always order Paulaner. Whatever you choose it will be good.
Finally, if you no longer want to drink a regular beer but still feel that you want something or you want to impress friends with knowledge of Bavarian traditions it’s worth asking the waitress / waiter about ein Schnitt. What is this? The basic idea is half beer (schnitt means cutting) the second half of the glass filled with foam.
And if you want even more impress everyone try to correctly say the word: Oachkatzlschwoaf. Do not worry, it’s okay. It’s a kind of test, after which it becomes clear whether you were born in Bavaria. If you can say it correctly – you are from Bavaria, if not .. Well at least you get the sympathy of the Bavarians for trying 🙂
But before you’ll break your tongue, try to use it to feel the taste of local foods. Paulaner Brauhaus also serves very good food. The simplest what is worth a try with beer it’s of course true German pretzel. If you are not hungry, but you want to try something take the cheeses and meats (there is more meat then cheese). If you have a craving for something more – necessarily try the duck, because it’s really what comes out perfectly here. And if you want to sin with excesses in eating (and drinking, because in the end Paulaner) that take knuckle.
If you’re in Munich, then go to Paulaner Bräuhaus, forget for a while about healthy food, the cholesterol, and other similar things and order a beer and pork knuckle.
I almost forgot about the vital issue. If you like beer served at Paulaner Brauhaus, then you can take it with you. Or even 20 and 30 liters. In barrel. At an affordable price – 160 (20l) or 230 (30l).
