I visited the Kloster Machern on a wet Monday lunchtime (June 2007) with my wife and three people with walking difficulties. This review has therefore, to be taken with a pinch of salt.
The whole set up is very impressive (see the website), but it wasnít all open when we went.
We went straight to the brewhouse and I got two bottles of each beer they brew (helle, dunkell and wiess) from a chap who was cleaning the brewing equipment. Sadly the main drinking room (brauhaus) was closed.
We found the wine stube, a smart, light, airy room with a bar in it. The had the helle and wiess on tap, which were both in good order.
The ladies in my party had coffee and cakes; they were also fine, according to the girls. The young lady that served us was lovely, didnít much like her sour faced female overseeing person though.
The car/coach park is huge and there are hundreds of tables on the well kept lawns, all empty on our day, but it must fill up at weekends and sunny days. I will revisit one day, hopefully when the whole place is available for me to enjoy. I want to attack the real menu and drink in the bar I can see on the website.

Beautiful location on the Mosel river. Have a nice menu of regional food with their own beers. Ample parking and lots of room outside for kids to run around. Very nice - definitely worth a visit.

Went here with my family for a Christmas party. I was impressed with the size and ambiance of the place. It was very cozy (Iím sure the fireplace helped). Their was a descent variety of food but the quality was mediocre at best. The beer brewed on premises is excellent! I highly recommend the hell. The only beers served were their own brews and three selections of alcoholfrei (Bitburger and two others). I didnít have a chance to visit the store or the museum unfortunately. Overall, I enjoyed my visit and would recommend others to check it out.

Spent an interesting evening with Steptin here. Is very nice getaway place. They have kept up the old Kloster very well. The eating hall is large and maintains a Bavarian menu.The service was outstanding. They have three of their beers on tap. There is a shop selling all of their beers next door.

Went on a sunday afternoon and unfortunately the "beer store" was closed. I did sit in the bar/restraunt area and enjoy a few of their brews though. Very nice atmosphere, nice people. Will be stopping by if Iím in the area on a weekday to grab some beer to bring home.

Taken from my notes on my Euro tour. A fantastic small town place. Both beer and food are very good. A must stop in this wine region.

Of the three beers available, the Hefeweizen was by far our favorite. It had that banana-y taste to it, but it was really pleasant to drink. Food was excellent, too. MrReaves and I are going to go back for their Oktoberfest celebration starting 2 Oct 09 to see if they are offering anything special.

Stopped by during the summer on a Monday off, thought it would be slow. I was wrong very packed! Due to all the people the staff had their hands full and took thier time. The food was very authentic and good. I think this is worth a stop if your following the Mosel River.

Itís annexed to an abbey it looks quite recent, even if it has the classic bršuhaus decorations (hanging branches of hop, a lot of cooper and wood etc). Their 3 beers are not bad, even if the taste of the region seems to be for low hopped ones. When I visited it was late Sunday and it was empty, otherwise I would imagine that it will fill up with a lot of people and become very chaotic, and the average patron must be 50 years old with his lady...
