The only Kölsch brewpub I attended during busy time. I was here on some middle-of-the-week evening and place was quite packed with mostly old men, and also some old couples. No-one under the age of about 45-50 besides me and my friends. Surprisingly for this kind of German crowd the place wasn’t very smoky.
The waiter looked a bit grumpy when he told me there are no english menus, but was friendly and helpful later that evening. I had some baked potatoes and my friends had some sausages on bread and some other small German cuisine dishes. Everyone was quite happy with the food and the service, and above all with the very good Kölsch! I also bought a glass and a bottle at a ridicioulous price (I think I paid about 2 Euros for a 0.5L bottle and a glass). Overall a great place!

The brewpub is located outside the busy tourist attractions around the city center, well hidden and quit. It is probably a five to ten minutes walk from the main rail station. The service was ok, the Kölsch was refreshing and enjoyable, the interior very oldschool with some old mans charme. Recommended for the tick and the atmosphere.

My second favourite Kölsch, nice prices as well, and nicer service than what you’d expect from Cologne. Overall recommendable!

Decent kölsch place, very intimate garden. Service was friendly. The Kölsch was average.

Visited on a Friday evening. They have a nice quiet garden out back, the place was not so busy considering the hour. The kölsch is not super classic but quite tasty, and the prices are good. We got some pretty friendly service. Didn’t try the food. Might not return, but it was a fun stop.

One of the better kölsches for my palate, crisp, woody, well-developed, it was a real surprise. Also the cheapest by a lot. This is away from the tourists but so close to walk...

Visited at opening time on Saturday 27/04/13 just after 11am. We were first in the door for a quick breakfast kolsch and another party of 3 followed us in a few minutes later.
2 rooms with wooden floor scattered with sawdust - old skool !
Basic wooden benches and tables throughout, stained glass windows, some breweriana adorning the walls.
Service was a little slow - very un-Koln like, I don’t think they normally get a pair of tickers marching in at 11am! 1 kolsch and an aklofrei offering available.
About a 6 / 7 minute walkd from the HBF away from the tourist areas.

Hard to find spot 10 minutes from Dom. Place was fairly quiet when visited. Beer was just OK. Service was average , did not care much for my presence.

Kolsh is way better than the commercial examples (Fruh, Sion, Gaffel), very aromatic and offers a complex taste. Big tasting rooms comes with good service and a lively ambiance. Doesn’t feel like a tourist trap.
