Visited during the Oktoberfest season. Bar is pretty small. Selection is quite dull. The women behind the bar didnít understand me when I asked for the hefeweizen on tap - which was very off-putting. Bottle selection is a bit better than what is on tap, but still quite uninteresting - plus local bottle shop have better choices on this front. The look of the bar feels dated and a bit cheap. Overall very disappointed I wonít be returning - surprised how high it is on the Ratebeer list for Edinburgh

2014-07-09. Tiny bar, tiny tap list is unexciting. Lengthy bottle list but not much on it that is particularly enticing if you arenít looking for German beers. Probably some appeal for locals but as a North American visitor looking for UK beers itís main appeal was close proximity to Cloisters. Atmosphere is cozy. Server seems nice enough. The room is overly warm for me. Not a terrible bar by any means, but there are far better options for a beer geek visiting Edinburgh.

One of the best times I had in Edinburgh. This small but friendly place had a fine selection of beers, not least German, and a very friendly staff. Lot of student types, some of them German and football. I was served my very first Dogfish Head beer here! Iím staying in the next door hotel again if I ever go back, cause this was a splendid place to have a drink!

Small place with little seating. Iím glad I was there during the day and not on a weekend evening - I canít imagine how that would be. Limited selection of beers on tap, but luckily lots more on bottle. Decor-wise I have to say that - despite how fun it is to sit and pick out beers youíve tried, from the wallpaper-movif - it really doesnít do the place any favours. I doubt Iíll be back - not because itís bad, but because there are much better places.

Smallish bar located near central Edinburgh with an extensive bottled beer list and some beers on tap. Screen showing football and not too busy when visited mid-week.

A friendly, little, four-sided, German inspired, corner bar with some connection to the nearby Ninaís Mini Marked. I couldnít spot any cask ales but quite a few taps serving craft ales from Scottish microbreweries, like Tempest, and a few German weizbier. The bottled beer menu should be the best in town, again with emphasis on Scottish micros and German beers. Cozy, laidback atmosphere, right kind of British rock music and smiling welcoming service. The bar is located in what is now the epicenter for good beer in Edinburgh, within short walking distance to Cloisters, Nina, Hanging Bat and The Blue Blazer. We arrived at Brauhaus late on a Tuesday evening, the bar was busy, but we found two chairs, and stayed for a couple of hours (Visited 06.08.2013).

This was the first bar in Edinburgh with a truy interesting menu of beers. They used to have an enormous selection of internation beers but ultimately it boiled down to lagers from obscure nations. It upped ití game in the past year with lots more appealing brews from Mikkeller, De Molen, Struisse. Itís nae cheap but it was never gonna be. They show a lot of football on the TV which is good or bad depending on your perspective. The distibution of space is not great. Itís so small and I believe the seating could be more efficient. If itís a busy night, things can get over warm and a bit hellish. Nice if you get it to yourself though. Well worth a visit and it slots very nicely in to a bar crawl of the best pubs in Edinburgh.

good range of bottled beers from around the world and a few kegs of often obscure stuff
comfy seating always a bonus
worth asking whatís new in as it may not yet be on printed beer list

Alright, so this place is dingy, not a place for a date, but the staff is very knowledgable about beer. This is a beer geek place with a crazy good selection of bottles, including American craft beer if youíre into that. Lots of De Molen. Could have more taps, but the bottle list is amazing.

Large Selection of Interational beers... but there all very standard ones, no Nogne, Mikkeller, Struise , Alesmith, etc.. No rates for me other than obscure lagers.. Nice addtion for the Common Man... dissapointing for the Conisuer. UPDATE. The Selection here had imporved as the availability of the Big European names has improved in the Country. This can only be a great thing 66-> 76
