Das beste Kölsch ist immer noch ein Päffgen. Essen kann man hier auch,, gut aber es gibt bessere Brauhauskost. Leider ist das Personal besonders an Wochenenden irgendwie immer überfordert. Aber das gute Bier mlässt einen darüber gerne hinwegsehen.

One of the most traditional Brauereigaststätten in Köln/Keulen/Cologne.Large with several rooms, behind it a large garden, and the brewery behind that. One beer only, but very good. Nice food as well. No bottles, but if you bring your own siphon (growler) they will fill it for you.

One of the nicer traditional brewpubs in Cologne. Good old school vibe. I felt like regular there with my friends.

Awesome place where the ambiance is a minimum of a 5. I sit here looking right at the gravity feed wooden dispensing barrel where three hop wreaths hang just above it. I sit at a narrow like birch wood table top that head straight back to the back of the space, something like 20 of them just along the center. Very unique aged wood and character everywhere. It has a stained glass look looking out both the front and back of the space. Big space that likely blows through kolsch by the barrel when its hoppin.

Wer nicht im Päffgen-Brauhaus eines der besten Kölschsorten probiert hat, ist selber Schuld.

Not only do they have the best kölsc in great conditionh, they also serve it in a lovely pub that appear very authentic and real. We visited just after opening, in fact they had’t brought the first barrel up from the cellar yet. Even if the köbes seemed a bit grumpy having to serve us this early, he was still quick and attentive

I stumbled into Paffgen in the evening of Rosen Montag to escape the Karnevale madness in and around the kolsch pubs centered around the heumarkt and dom. I immediately fell in love with the attitudes of my fellow revellers and the laid back "old school" look and feel of this hausbrauerei. Paffgen kolsch is easily the best in Koln, and the Paffgen brewpub is the best pub.

The ambiance is a bit too rustic and old-school for my personal taste, but the (one) beer is, or should be, a world classic. By far the hoppiest Kölsch at the moment. I have yet to actually eat anything there, so cannot comment on food.
