Paulaner Brähaus is one of surprisingly few brew-pubs found in Munich. Although it is of relatively recent vintage -- established within the past two decades -- it has a history that reaches back to the golden age of Munich brewing. In 1889 two brewing brothers, Eugen and Ludwig Thomas, began hand-crafting beers on this site. They opened the doors to what was then called Zum Thomasbräu and began offering a pale lager that was way ahead of its time. The beer the Thomas Brothers introduced revolutionized the brewing industry and literally altered the tastes of the beer-drinking public. The tradition lives on, and local brew masters at Paulaner Brähaus today serve up several styles of home-brewed beers, including a Pils, Dunkles and even a light wheat beer. The interior includes an inviting, spacious pub made for drinking brew and an outdoor beer garden as well. It gets a strong 4-beer rating..
