Completely different to all the traditional place in Cologne if you are tired of Kolsch. Lots of taps, mostly Belgian and an interesting bottle selection. Has a small terrace

For Koln, best beer options avialalbe, and prices are not to bad. Did not have food, and I sat outside, service was pretty good.

A review of sorts as I didn’t actually purchase a drink in here !
Drawn by the allure of a multi tap venue of beers other than kolsch we hit the beer museum around midnight on Friday 26/04/13. Perhaps our timing was the mistake, or perhaps it is always like this ?
Loud Abba like Euro Pop was blasting out of the speakers at a volume to prohibit conversation.
The place was full of kids and pretty busy downstairs so we headed upstairs where there was room - we soon returned as this was the smoking area and stank of cigarettes. We attempted to get served but the 2 girls behind the bar were busy chatting to one another and after waiting for a minute or so we decided we really didn’t need to be in this bar and left. Beers I noted included Diebels Alt, Kulmbacher Dopplebock and other largeish players such as Erdinger.
If I returned here it would be in the afternoon.

Graet selection of German Bocks on tap /the only place like this in Cologne/. Welcome relief from ever- present Koelsch. Open till 2-3 am - another rarity in this well-ordered town. One serios drawback is music that is played so loud that you cannot think let alone talk. Bring ear-stoppers and enjoy Vitus.

Hofbrau Munchen Delicator from tap could be a reason to go. Otherwise this is extremely odd. Grown people dancing and shouting pop ballads from the 80’s mixed with really young people drinking Corona. Really loud music. Corona, Leffe and Germans from tap. Bittbuger, Erdinger, etc. Hmmh..

Zum "nur Bier trinken" ist das Biermuseum eine Top-Adresse. Mehr als 15 Biere vom Fass und diverse Flaschenbiere stellen so eine einzigartige Vielfalt in Köln dar. Essen sollte man dort eher nicht denn teuer und mittelmässig muss nicht sein.

Not the most exciting place to be, the whole place seemed a bit tired. They may have a German beer you haven’t rated, and you may be looking for something other than kölsch, which i the best reason to visit

Rather dingy place with disinterested service. Quite a few tap beers, though not a whole lot of hard to find things. Had a Kulbacher Eisbock, though. Not that great, but at least I found it. Good for a couple if you get sick of Kolsch, which you probably will.

So the selection is not huge - but everything is relative, and in this town many places are 1 beer wonders. So aces for selection. It’s a bit grungy, despite a fairly recent coat of interior white paint. We were the only customers, and the service was surprised to find us. Tap beers might be difficult to identify as to brewer. However, it was a good break after walking the Rhine bank. Good place to go when feeling "kolsched".

If you are out to try some new beer, stay away Friday and Saturday night! It is to noisy, overcrowded, a lot of smoke and weird German pop music. Visit at daytime and you can get a table and enjoy a fairly nice selection of beer. The staff are rather unknowing, but I got a friendly service. A problem is that their beer list is inaccurate.I think that Kulmbacher Eisbock 11 % (40 cl, 2,9 Euro) has to to be EKU 28, which is 11 %. Another one is Kulmbacher Doppelbock. What have I been drinking? I see that some at Ratebeer think it is a Hofbräu München Delicator Doppelbock. My first beer was Vitus Weizenbock, a good change after lots of different 20 cl kölsches.
