The Augustiner Keller has been around since the early 19th century in one form or another. Despite being built next to the old execution grounds for the city of Munich, it’s always been party central. I like to think that maybe the condemned got to stop by for a maß and a pretzel before the end. Today, with an expansive outdoor beer garden, a large festive hall and a cellar bar and restaurant, it can accommodate thousands of hungry and thirsty locals and visitors alike. One of the highlights is watching the barmen tap the huge wooden kegs to keep the beer flowing. Many of the friendly waitstaff have a great sense of humour – ask one of them if you can get a beer in any size smaller than a litre (a maß) and prepare to be playfully insulted!
