What You Can Expect
Take a guided tour of the brewery to see its malting towers, brewhouse, fermenting tanks, beer cellars and wells. Then you’ll finally get what you’ve been waiting for – a beer tasting! While you sample the beer, you’ll also enjoy a fresh Bavarian pretzel.
The guide was fantastic. He sounded like he knew what he was talking about. The beer tastes good too
We had a very knowledgeable tour guide. Also all you can drink for 45 minutes before the tour starts. Doesn't get any better.
My wife and I were somewhat apprehensive about taking a beer-related group bus tour in Munich. We were worried that it may be a little too "touristy" and that we would not get anything out of it. We only took the tour because of a dead spot in our schedule and it had good reviews on Viator. It turned out to be one of our best experiences in Munich. To our surprise, the overwhelming majority of the participants were German so the bus ride alone was an immersion into German culture. The guide on the bus tour was very knowledgeable of Munich and the history of beer.
Once we arrived at Paulaner brewery, we immediately started with beer and pretzels. For the first 45 minutes at the brewery, the whole group just drank beer and socialized. When it was time for the tour to start, the German group left roughly 10 minutes ahead of the English speaking group. This was great because I am sure that neither group wanted to sit through hearing the same presentation twice. The English speaking group was small (just 6 of us) and we were able to ask a lot of questions about the brewery and get a personal experience with our guide.
At the end of the tour the bus loaded up with a happier and more talkative group than it started what it started with. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone interested in the history of beer in Munich.
My first time in brewery ,so this was very interesting and informative. The guide was great and so was the beer sample and pretzel at the end of the tour.
I have visited many US breweries, and while the process is the same, the history of this tour is impressive. Must do for any brew fan.
Great tour 100% recommended!!!!
Very good guide tell us a lot about Munich and the Brewery and Beer culture.
The tour didn't go to Paulaner as advertised, since they are in the process of moving their brewing operations to a new location, and we didn't find this out until we boarded the tour bus. The tour guide was Rainer exceptional, and he showed us the locations of the Big 6 breweries in town. Giesinger Braü was a really nice stop as an alternative to Paulaner, but it would've been nice to know this in advance.
