Karlsruhe/Strassbourg would be the best in the area - several breweries/brewpubs in Karlsruhe and surrounding area, and a good beer store in Strassbourg - nothing spectacular but not bad. Freiburg/Colmar is prettier but only a couple of places in Freiburg and nothing in Colmar beerwise.

Im from freiburg so i can tell you something about this city. The city has one brewery (Ganter), two brewpubs (Feierling and Martins Bräu) and one beerbar (Bierhaus). BEsides that, you will find some smaller and bigger breweries in the region. Some of them produce quite good beer. But don’t expect something extraordinary here.
