Also to quote from above site

You can also take a stroll outside to see the Munich Airport Center (MAC), the amazing structure linking the two terminals. The MAC is the venue for many exciting events all year round, ranging from a beach volleyball tournament - played on 750 tons of sand especially trucked in for the occasion - and open-air movie nights in August and September to a Christmas market in December and early January with gingerbread, mulled wine, traditional handicrafts and an outdoor ice skating rink! The MAC is also the home of Airbräu - the world's first brewery in an airport. Enjoy authentic Bavarian cooking and German beer brewed right on the premises. In the summer months you can quench your thirst the Bavarian way in the Airbräu beer garden, shaded by real chestnut trees.
