Munich is having one of the nicest summers in recent memory, so I know it is a bit cruel to post a gallery of just with pictures of the Augustiner’s golden brews if you summer did not shape up as nicely. But this is a blog about a beer garden, so I am just going to…

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.

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…

We are having a week of spitting snow here in Munich. Whaaaaat? Next week is May and the official opening of the Beer Garden.  Saturday is supposed to be the famous spring flea market for “Fruhlingsfest”.   Things do not look promising.

Ah, Munich had a taste of spring this week, so over at the Keller it means out-go-the-curling-lanes and in come the fest-tables.  A new picture gallery will be uploaded onto the home page soon, so you can see how everyone here is preparing for spring and the beer garden season.
