    The best beer gardens in Bavaria aren’t new: they’re old, well-worn places with big mugs of traditional brews. 4 seasonal beers including Paulaner Salvator & Ayinger Celebrator are on the menu. Read more

    Zum Schneider celebrates its b-day with beer, pig on a spit, & a performance by the owner's band, Mösl Franzi & the JaJaJas. Swig the beers from Haufbräuhaus Traunstein while available. Read more

    A good Bavarian beer deserves an authentic brat with it. Go for the sausage platter and the Weihenstephaner. Thirsty? Get the large litre mug.

    It's off menu, but they almost always have Schweinehaxe (roasted park shank), served w sweet stewed red cabbage, a large dumpling, & a dark smoky gravy. Best Teutonic comfort entree in the city.

    Get the "large" beer. You basically have to and it will be worth it. Baked camembert and bratwurst are both delicious. Definitely sit outside if you can snag a table.

    Have a zwickel and the bratwurst platter. Great during World Cup or Euros matches. When Germany isn't playing, it is more laid back and easy to get a table. When Germany is playing, well, it isn't.

    Lots of fantastic German beers, but start with the two breweries sold exclusively at Zum Schneider: Traunstein and Andechs. You'll be speaking German by your third liter.
