We decided to walk down to the Viktualienmarkt lunch and a beer.

I am not familiar with Schlossbrauerei Au-Hallertau, but that is one of the traditional hop growing regions of Germany, so it seemed worth a stop.
In the middle of a courtyard was a small bistro.

We continued on to the Paulaner Bräuhaus. This was once the Thomasbräu brewery before Paulaner bought them over a century ago.
As is typical of German brewpubs, they had the standard three colors of beer: yellow, brown and white (actually, that can be said of most Munich pubs as well)
We had the Dunkel and Zwickl and they were decent. Much better than the typical German brewpub beer. They were brewing while we were there, so that was a bonus.
We didn't eat, but the food looked good and the room is very nice. Would be worth a meal stop if in the area.
We wander around some more, seeing some sights. We ended up at the Schnitzelwirt which is a Spaten pub.

Just down the street is the Augustiner Grossgaststätte so we had a night cap there. This is my favorite Munich beer, but I'd take almost any Bamberg beer (except Klosterbräu) over it. Just goes to show.
