When you think of Hofbrauhaus Las Vegas, you may conjure up images of rowdy patrons wielding steins full of brew while stomping their feet to the sounds of authentic Bavarian tunes gushing from the instruments of lederhosen-clad musicians.
But before we became a go-to spot for bachelors and bachelorettes and the overall good times originated by Bavarian Kings, our predecessor, Hofbrauhaus, Munich, was a haven for novelists, painters and poets alike.
It’s true. Hofbrauhaus, Munich was a popular spot for writers like Hans von Hopfen, Frank Wedekind, and the most-famous Bavarian author of them all, Ludwig Thoma. In fact, Thoma was so inspired by the ambiance that he chose Hofbrauhaus as the setting for his satire, An Angel In Munich.
An Angel In Munich is the story of Alois Hingerl, porter No. 172 at Munich Central Station. One day he works so enthusiastically that he drops dead! He is carried to heaven by two angels but discovers that life in the clouds is not his cup of tea—he prefers something much stronger. To put an end to Alois’ grumbling, God sends him back to earth with a list of divine inspirations for the Bavarian government. However, the parched porter decides to stop for a quick beer at Hofbrauhaus Munich first.
One beer turns into two…three…four…and to this day, he still sits at the world’s most-famous beer hall while the government awaits word from the divine.
We certainly can’t blame Alois for giving into his cravings for the best brew in the world. And we won’t blame you if this whets your appetite for the same! Come have a brew or two with us. Reserve you spot here.
