An Afternoon at Augustiner Brauerei Salzburg

On the last afternoon I was in Salzburg I had the pleasure of visiting the largest beer tavern in Austria. The Augustiner Brauerei offers both a tavern (for enjoyment during bad weather) and a lovely beer garden (for those awesome summer days!).  I guess I should clarify, I did not visit the tavern but spent some relaxing time in the beer garden.Entrance Augustiner Brewery Salzburg Austria

Arriving by bus I just needed to walk across the street to find one of the best places to spend an afternoon in Salzburg! The beer garden at Augustiner Brauerei has 1,500 seats under wonderful chestnut trees.

The brewery is still partially owned by the Michaelbeuern Benedictine Monastery and if you’re lucky you’ll see some of the monks enjoying beer and conversation under the same trees!Beer Garden Augustiner Salzburg Austria

Producing over 250,000 gallons of beer annually, the beer is still drawn from wooden barrels.  Upon arriving, you will pay for a token, take a stein off the shelf and wash it before presenting it for filling.  It is a very fun experience!Augustiner Brewery Salzburg Austria

There are quite a few places to purchase food here but it is all self serve.  You are also encouraged to bring your own picnic!

This afternoon I was lucky enough to have musical entertainment while enjoying my beer. During the bands break a gentleman entertained the crowd.  I couldn’t understand a word he was saying but he must have been very funny because everyone else was laughing!Band at Augustiner Brewery Salzburg Austria

Beer Gardens are perfect way to relax while enjoying local company and customs.  I love spending time in beer gardens and highly recommend the Ausgustiner Brauerei in Salzburg!

    I love seeing monks drink beer, it always makes me chuckle! When the weather is nice I’m usually in a beer garden at least once a week, there’s something so relaxing about them, although I haven’t been to this one.
