This is a fun and convenient spot that's only a block from Marienplatz and 2-3 from the Hofbrauhaus.
There's a large indoor area with 3 large rooms capable of seating a few hundred people. When weather permits (I was there in May), there are roughly 15-20 outdoor tables, too.
The menu is massive and contains everything from the usual pork knuckles, white sausage, and pretzels to organ meat and Bavarian delicacies. We just snacked on potato pancakes and desserts, but the food we did have was excellent.
What about the beers? There's actually a pretty stellar selection. They have the normal Schneider Weiss, Helles Weiss, Kristal Weiss, as well as both Aventinus items. I didn't order any, but I noticed they also had 2-3 rotating Bavarian lagers and an alcohol-free, too.
Since Schneider doesn't make any lagers, the pils, helles, dunkel, etc. offerings were from other breweries...some fairly well known, and others more obscure. When I was there they had Tegernsee Spezial and a pils from a pretty small northern German brewery.
Like a few other spots in the area, they also have the own excellent house schnapps, too.
There's nothing quite like a fresh Aventinus! That's the item I keep going back to, but keep in mind that it's more potent than it seems.
Service was great. My German's rough at best, but they have all of their menus in 6 different languages and I can confirm the staff speaks English and Spanish with no issues.
If you're in the area, you need to stop in for a beer and a snack!
EDIT: I find the food to be pretty good here, too. Lots of options, and they do a good job with staples like pork knuckles, dumplings, and sourbraten. I also noticed that if they're crowded, there's a massive seating area upstairs, too. Some of it's reserved, but there are open tables up there at times. I find the best option to be the patio when possible, but if it's rainy, grab one of the high top tables across from the bar/kitchen.

I learned a lot during my first few hours in Munich, but most notably was how early Germans started their beer drinking. After getting my feet wet in the city (literally and figuratively) for a few hours, it was time to grab a beer. There are a couple enterences into the restaurant; sit yourself down anywhere there's an empty chair. Even before 10am, there were a lot of people inside eating and drinking, and it helped give the place and uplifting feeling.
Wooden chairs and tables around the restaurant, and there are several different rooms. The kitchen and bar sit in the middle of it, as I sat just a throw from it, along a long wooden high table. A moment later I received a special English menu to look at what beers and what food was available. I smiled; 7 different beers on-tap, from the classic Schneider Weiss, the strong Aventinus (my personal favorite), and even two guest lagers, and an addition four from the bottle. Not only was the beer very good, but the matching glassware added beauty as well. Most 300 ml pours went for €3.00, which helped my wallet as I planned to sample several beers.
Lets not forget about the food. 2 Weisswursts and a pretzel for breakfast...oh dear...I'm in love. After that moment, I had a feeling that I was going to love Munich (and I did).
Variety, quality beer, great food, and atmosphere; Weisses Brauhaus brings those characters to a level which very few in Munich can match. This is one to experience.

The Weiss Brauhaus is a great place to grab a Schneider Weiss and a pretzel while walking around the Old City in Munich. The decor is very "German" and the food is pretty good. Like everwhere else in Munich, service is slow (coming from a New Yorker) but it doesn't matter because the beers are big and the need for refills are not often
While in Munich I made a point to visit this place several times. Scneider Weisse Tap 1 mein Blonde proved to be my favorite beer in all of Munich and this place has plenty of them.

Exploring Munich on foot, I stumbled across Weisses Brauhaus and thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The place was full and I was able to get a table upstairs. The atmospehere was casual and comfortable. Service was outstanding and the menu and beer selection were excellent. I had the wiener schnitzel with a Schneider Kristall for starters followed by an Aventinus which was amazing. This was not a tourist destination and that made it quaint and genuine. Walking distance from Marienplatz made it very accessible. Across the street from Paulaner and around the corner from Ayinger, Augustiner and Hofbrauhaus. Went to each of them and enjoyed every one of them. Weisses was a highlight for me.

Stopped here on good Friday, the place was still nearly full. I tried going the Friday before and it was so packed we couldn't even sit.
It has a pretty good selection of beers including just about every Schneider beer and about 5 or 6 guest beers.
I tried the Kristal, Blonde, and Eisbock. They were all good. The service was also good. The wurst I had was good though pricey.
All in all this is a great destination just to the east of Marienplatz, it is easy to find right across from McDonald's and Burger King.

I stopped in here on my oktoberfest brewery tour last week in munich.
The location is great as its located right outside the Marienplatz on the corner of 3 streets. There is some nice outside seating, though inside you have the traditional baviarian restaurant/bar theme going on with nice long tables, a few hightops by the bar, and a nice backroom that was great for dinner. I had the Aventinus from the bottle and was given the appropriate glasswares. The bottle looked a little different than what we get in the states but the beer was the same, maybe a bit fresher. Service was typical for munich, with little to no interaction between the waitors and the patrons. The price was about 4 euros per beer depending and they had the whole schneider line up (original, aventinus, eisbock) as well as a few draft lines. Great place to stop in and relax with a weisse beer or two, and really a nice atmosphere to be in.

my brothers and i spent last week in munich; two nights were spent here at this joint. the atmosphere here is nice and traditional, with plenty of seating. the first night we went we met some german dudes who we friendly; the server, however, was not. we never saw a menu, as we were there for the beer, so i had no idea what they had as far as selection. we just went with big mugs of original weisse. the second night, we found the english menu, and i'll be damned if they didn't have the best selection of munich's beer halls. they even had hopfen-weisse, which was infinitely better than it was when i first had it in the states. it was fresh, pungent and delicious. after all the helles, dunkles & hefes we'd been drinking, it was awesome to get my hop fix. the server again was very surly, but after we befriended an older local sitting at our table who was a regular, she warmed up to us. he told us most of the servers are like that. the food was also really good. overall, with the exception of the servers, this was a great place to visit, and our favorite of the trip.

I have been there a couple of times at different times of the year and day and the atmosphere is obviously different at midday (when it is packed) than at night when many people have moved on to bars and clubs.
I f you are lucky to get a seat in the great hall downstairs it is quite a good atmosphere but the rest of the building is like a maze.
The main selling point is the selection of beers including 3 of my all time favourites (Aventinus, Aventinus Eisbock and Hopfenweisse)
Also there are the standard choices and an interesting strong Hefeweizen(6.00%) called "Mein Gruenes" which has higher ABV and more hops than usual - another must try.
The food is hearty and OK.

Our first day in Munich for Oktoberfest, and we wanted to stop somewhere for a drink before dinner. We just got off our overnight flight a few hours ago, so a wheat beer sounded good. First stop of the night: Weisses Brauhaus. Got a table outside since the weather was so nice and the sun still up. Inside looked cool too, but let's enjoy the evening weather. Ordered up a few original hefes, served in 0.5l glasses. Wow, what a beer to start the trip off with! Amazing. Tasted so much better that any hefe I've had in the States. Tasted like it was brewed two hours ago. Might have been the best tasting beer of the trip. There were a few other beers offered, but I wanted the flagship brew. Our waitress was good at first, but then disappeared, and the other waitress wouldn't help us because we weren't her table. Annoying. But, just the beer alone makes this place a must visit.

A friend and I came here on the recommendation of a fellow BA. It was worth the trip, and the wait to get in.
Weisses is huge. I don't think I ever quite found my way all the way to back of the restaurant. Plus, there's even more seating upstairs, and a patio (with no umbrellas for some reason) out front. Finding a place to sit is simply a matter of looking for a spare seat and asking if you can share a table with someone. It's really quite the social environment.
We were in Munich for Oktoberfest, so the place was packed. Understandably, service was slow at first, but once our waitress got to us, things went pretty quick. The menus (in German) are at the tables to give you time to figure out what you want before the waitstaff gets to you. Because of the crowd, we didn't bother asking for the English version of the menu. Instead, we cobbled together our limited German to figure out what was what and played "point and shoot." I ended up ordering a very heavy roast pork dish that is probably still clogging my arteries, but tasted excellent. My friend grabbed a sausage plate that he said was quite tasty.
We didn't stick around long enough to try a bunch of beers. I had the Schneider Original, and was quite happy with it. If we'd had more time to linger, I would have tried others.
All in all, Weisses is a must see in Munich. I'm really glad I had the opportunity to visit.
