Morning Fix

About a week ago I told you how difficult it is to get news specific to Munich in English, so instead I serve up a bit of news in German. And no better place to catch up on what’s going on in the world then at the edge of the English Gardens – in a small sunny Hofbrau beer garden. I’ve been very curious how these things work. I see beer gardens that serve only a single beer and are sponsored by the brewery, but it is unclear on whether they are owned, sponsored, or simply supported by the brewery. Anyone know? At any rate, the top news in Munich newspapers today includes the coronation of the new Russian president, a German banking scandal, some news on Munich’s Nazi past and future, and of course a story on FC Bayern’s 2-0 victory.

Sounds like you at least have reading proficiency in German. I never got that far in Hungarian, and I lived over there for two years. Good luck with the beer garden question.

I don't know about the breweries, sorry!

Have you tried the Munich News forum on ToyTownGermany? Lots of Munich-specific news there :)
