Hofbrauhaus 2017-2018


Score: 4

Award: Biggest, (my ranking: 30)

Atmosphere: 1.  Like Gordon Biersch, the 1 is likely perceived as an unfair score.  But again, this is a mega brewer with global distribution.  It just doesn’t fit on the Ale Trail.  The place is huge and it’s beautiful in a commercial sense.  But there’s no passion, no soul.

Beer: 2 – solid German styles that are all well done.  They’ve been doing it for like 300 years.  It should be good.

Service: 1 – Service was lacking.  We waited too long for our check.  My flight of beer was sloppily delivered and a fair bit spilled, with no recognition or even an “oops.”

Would I go back? – Only if the Ale Trail induces me to.
