Strong Beer Festival - Augustiner Keller
- Admission to Augustine Keller
- Available from 12th February to 19th March
This one is for the lovers of very strong hops. Strong beer festival is a huge event held every March, and lasts two whole weeks. Breweries and beerhalls in Munich throw open their doors and serve their most potent beverages (we warned you) at epic parties, alongside all sorts of food and, of course, Bavarian entertainment.
Established in the 17th century - going back to the Paulaner monks, who used to brew extra strength beer to sustain themselves during their Lenten Feast (hence the name) – this festival has cemented itself into the hearts of both tourists, and locals. The beers typically start with an average proof of 7.5% and, even though the beers strength is masked by a strong, malty flavour – the alcohol content can sneak up on even the most seasoned of drinkers.
This beer-filled festival takes place at one of the oldest beer gardens in Munich, and it's the perfect spot to soak up the authentic atmosphere. There are over 5,000 seats and we’ll sort out your admission to this massive celebration. Prost.
