This fantastic establishment is proof the Germans are finally embracing modern ultra tasty brews. And it is the first place I have seen in Germany with so many imports, Belgian Trappists, Brew Dog, USA beers. Not to mention the superb Ratskeller beers and guest beers from other German micro breweries. Prices are high but so is the quality and the former market hall has been done up with taste. Food good quality but expensive. I will only visit here again for drinking. A huge step forwards for Hamburg, prost!

This is the kind of place which feels like an old acquaintance, allthoug it is newly opened.
Easy acces from the Sternchanze Metro and train station, cross under the railway line towards a industrial area, and turn right immediately. More of a restaurant, with a big menu with some good german pub grub and also some finer dinings. Big local, high ceilings, industrial feeling, cosy interior, with lots of intimate seating groups. Also nice patio where you can be seated, and just 15 mtrs from their good bottle shop.Main thing here is their own beers, Ratsherrn, fresh on tap, you can have a beer sampler with 5 differn beers, there is also some different German micros on tap as well as bottled ones.

Newly-opened place located in a former meat market hall, right next to the new Ratsherrn brewery in a quickly gentrifying neighborhood. Very cool-looking interior. Good food - not cheap, though probably appropriately priced. The best thing about Altes Mädchen, however, is the excellent selection of beers - at least by German standards. They have their three regular beers and their Zwickel on tap, of course, but also some guest beers (among them the delicious and rare Fritz Imperial IPA) and lots of German and foreign bottled beers, mostly well-chosen. Not cheap, of course, but what can you expect...
Service is very friendly, but rather slow or inattentive, since the place is packed in the early evenings. Thus, it can be difficult to find a place to sit. Anyway, this is a must for any beer-aficionado living in or traveling through Hamburg, and will hopefully breed a lot off beer-geek recruits ;-)

Very, very nice looking place! Brand new and a super cool interior. Also the largest selection of beer in Hamburg, both bottles and taps, or so I think at least. Mostly their own beers from Ratsherrn on tap, but also some guest stuff, plus lots of different international beer in the fridges. Staff were kind of friendly, some more than others. Nice place nevertheless, and a must if you’re in Hamburg.

had the pleasure to be invited to teh pre-opening-party. very lovely place in a timeless design. a lot of different places to sit - nice corners, an open fire, balustrade, etc.
the food we got was excellent. they have the possibility of 20 different taps - when tey are all filled with different beers it should be the top of taps in germany. additionally you´ll get 60 bottled bers, which is also very hard to find elsewhere. when i got there they had "only" about 30 different bottles but about a dozen was unknown to me. one opthe top places in north-germany, maybe in whole germany, too.

As mentioned, this is a welcome oasis in a city that’s been notably short of beer culture. There’s 5 Ratsherrn beers on tap - typically 4 regulars plus a special, I think - and 4 or 5 others, all at typical city prices. The night we were there, the others were Hopf Helle & Dunkel Weiss, Fritz Ale IIPA and Schneider Aventinus. There’s a big bottled choice - not cheap, but also not often seen hereabouts. It being their first Saturday, the place was rammed so service was good but slow. Be aware that, during the evening at least, there is not much room for anyone who just wants beer - most patrons are there to eat as well. The place has several different "zones", including the fireplace area, plus a couple of private rooms. As yet there’s no non-German draught beers, and I don’t know if the list of "others" is fixed or will change/rotate.

An oasis in a beer desert.
For Germany, particularly for Hamburg (whose days as brew house to the Hanseatic League are *long* gone), this place is revolutionary. Almost a dozen taps, only one of which was for a fairly standard (albeit competently made) German Pilsner, several glass-doored refrigerators with foreign delicacies seldom seen in these parts (and some of them seldom seen, period) -- this is new here, and boy am I glad it’s finally arrived! The attention to detail in the interior is a joy to behold, the foodstuffs and non-beer drinks (craft coffee!) are carefully chosen and locally sourced, the menu makes an effort to describe the various beers, there are two beers (a Zwickel and a limited-edition dry-hopped Weizen) exclusive to this location, there’s an open fireplace toward the back of the venue -- I might be in love, here!
Ratsherrn’s brewery tap officially opened only yesterday (hey, the website is not even up yet!), so the service was a bit overwhelmed by the masses of the curious in the early evening; it got a lot better as the evening wore on and the place emptied out a bit. Be advised that there is no English-language menu available at the moment -- like I said, early days.
Bottom line: if you find yourself in Hamburg, and you like good beer -- run, don’t walk (better yet: take the S- or U-Bahn. Sternschanze station is right next door), to Altes Mädchen. That is all.
