How do you find the best possible beer in Munich?

The famous beer halls are difficult to describe - massive establishments dotted around the city. We tried the Augustiner Bräuhaus, Hofbräuhaus and Paulaner Bräuhaus. Augustiner had a massive beer garden (closed at the end of October), and a number of rooms. Great for a beer, but when we went back for food, struggled to find an unreserved table and when we did, the service was so bad we left. Hofbräuhaus was mad - huge, busy and noisy - but a great atmosphere in an interesting hall with brass band music. Found a table both times we went, and had decent food and great beer. Paulaner was, by comparison, quiet, and seemed smaller. But a lovely place to have a decent beer - and more like a British gastro-pub in its feel. If the others are too busy or noisy, I'd recommend a trip to Paulaner.
