Der Pschorr is situated directly at the Viktualienmart in Munich’s historical city centre and is probably the most contemporary of the traditional Munich beer halls which serve as flagships of the city’s Oktoberfest breweries. Even though it’s doing its best, in some ways, to hide it. The beer at Der Pschorr comes from wooden barrels, cooled by ice for example, but the establishment radiates traditional charm and modern Zeitgeist. Take a look at its interior below and you’ll see why.
Der Pschorr breathes the spirit of Joseph Pschorr, who set new standards in the art of brewery. He, for example, invented the first method of cooling beer two hundred years ago. In the winter he had long pieces of ice cut from the Isar River, and stored beer on top of it in deep vaults.
Visitors from all over the world, as well as original characters of Munich, university students and business men meet at their regular tables for a chat, they clink glasses of fresh, cool Hacker-Pschorr Edelhell in the beer garden, they fortify themselves with a good, strong meal in the cool beer cellar or enjoy a delicious, several-course dinner in Theresia's Hall, the part of Der Pschorr reserved for events and celebrations.
If you are having a hard time deciding where to have a traditional Bavarian meal in downtown Munich, it might prove helpful to know that Der Pschorr puts its daily menu with prices online and refreshes it on daily basis. You can have a look at today’s menu here. Nice. At the Pschorr great emphasis is given to regional products, not just declarative, they really know where their meat and produce comes from and the kitchen, led by Chef Wolfgang Schmidt, is great. If you are also looking for some action and entertainment during your meal, find a place somewhere close to the bar and watch the skilled waiters and waitresses do their thing, or witness a moustached man tap a fresh wooden barrel.
