Searching for Augustiner-Bräu in San Francisco

Has anyone seen this beer in the Bay Area? Augustiner is a brewery in Munich that doesn't export very many places. I would love to know if it's available somewhere around here. I have already checked with BevMo and haven't been able to find it. Thanks for your help.

  1. You might call Schroeder's and Suppenkuche.

    1. Just to update anyone who might be interested, I wasn't able to find Augustiner, but through my search I was exposed to Healthy Spirits, a great liquor store in the Castro which stocks a wide array of hard to find European imports. Just FYI.

        +1 for Healthy Spirits in the Castro north of Market. It is my favorite place to buy beer when I am in SF.

      2. I have been to Oktoberfest in Munich and Augustiner is one of my favorite brews. I think, however, you will find that it is not imported in to this country. I don't know if that's based on a lack of supply or other reasons. The last time in Munich in 1996 we were staying at the Ambassador In a town called Harras and I went to a liquor store to find some beer. I discovered that they make an exceptionally strong brew for the fest season.

        1. Just did a quick Google search and there is nothing to indicate it can be found in the US of A. If you find it though let us know. I want to be one of the first in line. Second choice for me is Spaten.

          1. I had it at House of Prime Rib recently, if I recall correctly.
