Let's shoot a beer or two in one of Munich izakayas [1]. Those who'd like to strike a sake, do that on their own responcibility :)

[1] An izakaya (居酒屋) (Japanese: [izakaja]) is a type of informal Japanese pub, a casual place for after-work drinking that could be compared to Irish pubs, tapas bars and early American saloons and taverns. Izakaya dining can be intimidating to non-Japanese because of the wide variety of menu items and the slow pace. Food is normally ordered slowly over several courses rather than all at once. The kitchen will serve the food when it is ready rather than in the formal courses of Western restaurants. Typically a beer is ordered when one is sitting down before perusing the menu. Quickly prepared dishes such as hiyayakko or edamame are ordered first, followed with progressively more robust flavors such as yakitori or kara-age, finishing the meal with a rice or noodle dish to fill up.
