Unions-Braeu closed some time ago. Other reviews are correct in that it seemed an afterthought from Lowenbrau. In another city it would have been a showpiece, but in Munich it was always an also-ran compared to the great beer halls.
If you're in the area, it's an easy walk to the Hofbrau Biergarden (not the tourist mecca, but the one the locals go to.) ---Bob & Ellie Tupper, authors, “Drinking In the Culture, Tuppers’ Guide to Exploring Great Beers in Europe.”

We first visited about 5 years ago and felt they had a decent craft beer selection at the time. The original pictures were from that visit. Well, we are back visiting family nearby and dropped in to pick up some local brews. While their cooler looks much the same as it does in the old pictures, there selection has improved and they've added the "Beer Den" which has 8 taps and two growler fill stations. The craft beer offering still has all the local (southern) breweries but they also have a decent selection from midwest and west coast brewers as well, both cans/bottles and on tap. Their "Sip & Shop" promotion almost makes grocery shopping fun! We enjoyed samples from Boulevard and Victory as well as Green Flash and Sierra Nevada (they had Narwhal on tap so I'm not sure if that was brewed in NC or CA). Of course there is plenty of parking and their staff was very knowledgable.
