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.

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.

Interesting tour about the history of the beer. You start off with a 40 minute beer tasting (open bar) so it is quite possible to get your money out of the tour there alone. Extremely knowledgable staff and the English tour was lead by a native speaker which makes it that much more enjoyable and easy to learn from.

For beer enthusiasts this is a great tour.
It starts with a sample or two of the Paulaner beers and pretzels....strange to start with the samples but got everyone relaxed and eager to see the brewery.
I would suggest to go during the week when the bottle lines are running but overall a fun couple of hours.
A shame that you don't get to finish the tour in the gift shop as I'm sure plenty of people would have made purchases.

3 star rating: Worth doing

I've been around quite a few breweries and know quite a bit about the brewing process. On the whole I didnt find this tour to be particularly interesting but in fairness this view is not shared by my son who rated the tour more highly than me. The tour to the site was well organised and we saw the sites of other breweries and landmarks in Munich which was a bonus if you hadn't already seen them.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

Tour was great while on the bus. Tour of brewery was only conducted in German, which left me missing out on 70+% of the commentary. Beer tasting was a good experience, but again missed out on the finer points of the commentary. Had this been conducted in English or both German and English, I am certain that i would have rated this considerably higher.
