Augustiner bier garten is great, probably avoid the table service section. If the weather is nice the huge park in the centre is great for a walk / cycle / swim.
Frühlingsanlagen as well.

You can get a train for about 30 mins to a number of lakes if the weather is really good or for a more traditional atmosphere.

Went to Schwabinger Osterwaldgarten a couple of years ago and had a great time, really good fun.

Closer to the centre Zum Dürnbräu was more staid and traditional but still a good experience.

I went for the weekend for the first time and absolutely loved it. Real Parisian vibe around the old town with great table service infront of stunning buildings. The main Höfbrauhaus was a bit of a tourist trap but worth checking out for at least one beer because the inside itself and sheer size of the place is a bit special.

Best meal was probably in the biggest beer garden in Münich at Hirschgarten.

Renting bikes and cycling around the Englischer Garten is a must do too.
