Austrian Beer from the Tap at Augustinerbräu
Salzburg is Austria's beer capital, with a half dozen good brewery choices. But for those who like their suds served in massive steins straight from a wooden barrel, the Augustiner Brewery at Mülln Monastery is the best place to indulge. Beer has been brewed here since 1621 using a carefully guarded recipe, and because it's not next door to a major tourist site, travelers and locals can mingle in relative peace. Enjoy a drink in the warm atmosphere of the Bräustübl—the monastery's pub—or in the quaint beer garden. The selection of brews is limited, but you can be sure it will be fresh. Food is available from the Schmankerlgang, an arcade of stalls selling just-baked breads, pretzels, radishes, fish, and (of course) sausages.
