At the appointed time (varies seasonally), make your way to Munich's Marienplatz to meet your guide and begin this 3.5-hour insider's look at the city's world-famous beer halls and breweries.
Start off by visiting one of Munich’s best old beer halls; a favorite among locals and famous for its lager, which still served from a wood barrel. Fortified by your first beer, make your way to one of Munich’s breweries to learn about the Bavarian brewing process. Sip some of the offered beers, and have the opportunity to purchase dinner in the brewery.
Learn why beer is good for your health, the length monks went to in order to satisfy their thirst during Lent, where and how beer was first made thousands of years ago, how to fully appreciate the taste of beer, what the beer purity law means, and more. End the evening at the world’s most famous beer hall: the Hofbräuhaus. Try a wheat beer (Weissbier) and a lager, which range in strength from 5% to 8% alcohol; see if you can conquer a mass (one liter of beer); or try some of the Hofbräuhaus' light or dark house beer.
