Few years ago i spend a night in some place in Freiburg, SW Germany, and had some mugs of a local beer i just can´t remember its name. It was poured in pottery mugs.
The place where i had this beer, is this one, "Freiburg Paradise":

Any idea about the beer?

Page 11 of their menu might give you a clue.

I didn´t notice, thanks. But anyway, i remember the bartender telling me taht that beer was a local and maybe a seasonal one. Does any of the ones listed fulfill this?

According to the menu and your (lack of) description, it could be any beer from this brewery http://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/furstlich-furstenbergische-brauerei/767/ . The brewery is in Donaueschingen and not in Freiburg, though.
Or, as your visit was "few years ago", the selection of beers at this place may have changed altogether.

As Sigmund says, none of the ones on the menu are "local". The big brewery in town, Ganter, would’ve been my first suspicion, but then again, who knows? If you were a tourist there, they might’ve thought that Fürstenbergische would be "local" to you, since it’s from the same state, anyway.

I remember the beer being a bit malty, some amber, and served in pottery mugs. I should check the Fürstenbergische beers.
Thanks.

That description could also fit the Riegeler Landbier - if that is from Riegele (Augsburg) however, it is even less local than Fürstenberg.

You know I hate to nitpick(!), but...that’s supposedly brewed by or at Fürstenberg.
