The spring equinox of 2010 in Bavaria brought nice and warm weather, calling for a spontaneous start of the beer garden season. The Hofbräukeller in Munich correctly uses the term cellar in its name for this type of open air restaurant was by definition situated on top of the breweries' cellars which were needed to store the beer and keep it cold.

A special feature about Bavarian beer gardens is - besides the tasty beer - the traditional rule that guests are allowed to bring their own food. One source in this case could be the daily food market just around the corner. Some people however take the time and prepare one of the typical specialities that fit together really well with a big mug of beer and a fresh pretzel. I decided to have some freshly made Obatzda, a savoury cheese spread typical of Bavaria. Just perfect together with some radishes on a slice of my favourite bread from a nearby bakery.
