Ready To Play?

Yesterday was very cold, perfect actually, for ice curling. The lanes were fast, hard and ready for fun. Visit the curling gallery to see the beautiful ice here at the Augustiner Beer Garden. Why mourn the fact that summer is gone when there is fun to have all winter here.

November: It’s almost time for Ice Curling

We are almost ready for the winter season, here at the Augustiner  beer garden.  The alpine hut has been built and decorated and the curling lanes are set.  In a few days the water will be frozen on the lanes and they will ready for use.  The picture below show the curling stones, soaking in…

Stollen Day

Ah Christmas stollen, it sometimes get’s a bad rap from Americans if all they have tried are the mass produced, grocery store varieties. The powdered sugared bricks can remind us of our equally sad fruit cakes,that reside in the holiday aisles of our local Wal-Marts or drugstores. But a home-made stollen or one made by your favorite…

The Maintenace Crew/Der Hausmeister

Before my computer meltdown (grrrrrr) I photographed the Hausmeister staff (or most of them) from the Keller.  This is the crew that maintains the grounds of the Augustiner Keller/Beergarden year round.  They do everything from cleaning the beer steins, to building the ice curling lanes. Every day is different and every day is chock-full-o-chores.  There…

How We Keep Up With It All

It’s July, so it’s high season over at the Keller.  Busy nights mean busy mornings. Daily, the Beergarden is raked, the seats and tables washed and the  “Last Call” beer mugs get collected, cleaned and reset for the coming evening.  This month the carpentry company Frado is here to resurface and seal table tops that have been beaten down…

New Goodness in July

Sorry, I was gone almost all the entire month of June,so there were no new posts about the Keller, but I will be back on July with more goodness.  Meanwhile enjoy this portrait of one of the long-time managers  (there is even a happier picture of him in the portrait gallery). the weather is beautiful here,…
