Self-service open in the beer garden
Do you have to talk about the beer? Yes! Definitely.
We don't just pour any beer, but the special beers from the Augustiner brewery.
And the best thing: in the Augustiner-Keller, you can enjoy Edelstoff freshly tapped from wooden barrels all year round. In the beer garden as well as in the dining rooms of the restaurant or on the terraces. Something really special.
Beer from wooden barrels is smoother because of its lower carbonic acid content. It flows fresh and cool from the barrel, and only under the pressure of its own weight. This is also what gives it its characteristic mildness, something that beer connoisseurs appreciate about beer from wooden barrels.
In addition, wooden barrels create a great atmosphere. The wooden barrel's dispenser contributes significantly to that traditional Bavarian atmosphere in the Augustiner-Keller. Especially in the beer garden, where the wooden barrels are tapped on so-called ganders so that they can be seen by all guests and each new barrel is celebrated with the old ritual of ringing bells.
By the way
Schäffler, who still make wooden vessels such as beer barrels by hand, were among the most important craftsmen in earlier centuries. After all, there were no plastic buckets or jars. In the meantime, there are only a few who practice the Schäffler's handicraft. For example, our barrels are from the Wilhelm Schmid barrel factory in Munich.
