nice place. Best draught brews in HCMC. Nice atmosphere. Well worth the visit if you are in HCMC. 3 of their own draught beers and some German bottled beers

Had the dunkel and the weissbier on draft, both looked good, but ultimately disappointed as the flavour profile (Weissbier) and a weird funky aroma (dunkel) led me to think that they do not care anymore about making good quality beer, but are just living off the fact that they have beers that you normally canít get in VN and therefore you should be grateful for that. I may be too harsh as I have since realized that they may not have a quality water source and it may be difficult to get good malt and hops given their geographical region. Service was abysmal though so no excuse for that.

Nice peaceful retreat from the hustle, bustle and humidity of Saigon. The brewpub is fantastically decorated and very European in appearamce and feel. The Helles was by far the best brew it was malty, bready and delicious, the dunkel however was stale and unappealing.

A quite nice little brewpub in the centre of Saigon. We only had one beer here, the Hefeweizen, but it was very nice. Decent german style beer was a nice break from the heat outside. Both German and Belgian imports were available on bottles. We didnít try any food.

Although the high quality draft selection was limited to Lager, Dunkleweizen and Dunkle the night we were there, the 20+ bottles make for a pretty good lineup. I chatted with the brewmaster, a Vietnamese who speaks English with a German accent, having lived 20 years there. He started Brauhof 9yrs ago-first brewpub in Saigon according to him. He is dedicated to using all German ingredients. He does make a few more styles, but no bock as the locals arenít into strong beer. Food was good, and overall damage not too bad. Where else can you get a nice liter of fresh German beer for about USD$4? My rating is high, but it deserves it relative to what else is on offer in SE Asia.

We were here in the morning, we were the first visitors of that day. The place was nice. It has a German style. Also the beers. The had several beers from all over the world. The staff was friendly, but didnít talks much. I think the only speak Vietnamees. A nice place to visited

Sign says "Adlerbrau." Has gorgeous patio and a cozy beery interior. The house beer is not good but their fridge is worth raiding, with Schlenkerla marzen and others. Nice place to sit.

This is a nice brewpub. They had a brown beer that had seemed like a British brown ale rather than a German style beer. They also had a nice but not great weizen beer. This is a pretty nice place to sit and drink. Itís small compared to the other brewpubs in Saigon but that just makes it a cozy experience.

A nice brewpub to enjoy a few beers in downtown Saigon. Friendly staff and the beers are good. I didnít get a chance to try the food but the menu had some interesting sounding dishes.

Between the Catholic cathedral and the old Presidential palace (now Reunification Palace). A splendid retreat from the bustle of downtown HCMC. The single bar is high-ceilinged with a Bohemian feel. They play Vivaldi in the courtyard - gets us every time. The international menu is served until 22.00. Is this the only bar in the world where you can get roast knuckle of pork Thuringian-style, shish kebab, jambalaya and eel & banana flower hotpot? Makes seasonal beers for October and the Spring.
