Visited on a cold January saturday with family and friends. The ambiance is comfy, with decorations related to hunting and beer. The restaurant was quite full when we visited. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, willing to offer background info on the beers available. The food was excellent, and the prices reasonable, especially for Potsdam. Getting there might be a bit troublesome for people without a car though.

Located on a woody slope of the hills between Potsdam and Caputh (Kaput??), this (former?) hunting lodge is am oasis of tranquility, far from the madding crowd of the city. The interior is decorated with hunting trophies, and has ample space for visitor, wishing to enjoy a quiet evening or afternoon sitting on a wooden bench and eating very decent food and drinking reasonable beer. The selection includes the brewery’s own produce, 3 beers on tap, 5 bottled, and 2 kinds of mead. The staff are very friendly, and the place, despite its location off the beaten track, seems to have a core of regulars. Inexpensive, unpretensious, and decent. I will gladly come back again one day.

En plein milieu des bois, nourriture très bonne, BIO, les bières sont sympas, le perosnnel aussi, mais parfois pas rapide, mais bon, on va quand on a le temps! Le prix sont logiques. Leur bière se trouvent aussi dans le Bio-Markt de la ville de Berlin.

Place review #100 !!! After a seven minutes bus ride from Hauptbahnhof (on foot it’s quite impossible) I came to this beer oasis in Potsdam. I’ve visited the town the whole day, so I needed some fresh, well made beers and they satisfied my needs. Stange, Lager, Potsdamer Weiss, Pils and Nikolator, all fresh, all more or less tasteful, all cheap. Loved the cosy atmosphere and the fast, friendly and caring service. Will surely come back when in Potsdam.

Of all the beer venues I’ve visited over the years this one involved one of the most ardous journeys - Oct ’10 (DM’s 40th bash).
We took the RB train from Berlin HBF and some 30 minutes later alighted at Potsdam HBF. There is a bus from said HBF that takes you within a few yards of this venue - I do encourage you to take it !
We took the other option for some reason which was a tram to near Templiner see after which we got hopelessly lost, spent more than hour than we should have done, walked (trespassed?) down a railway line, jumped a fence onto the footpath bridge over the lake and eventually arrived at the Braumanufaktur some 2 hours after arriving in Potsdam!
The place is akin to an old hunting lodge with deer/moose heads adorning the walls.
3 of their own beers were available on tap - all decent enough.
Service was more than decent as was the food - in fact the food was top notch - a couple of game dishses being on offer.
Well worth a visit.
Just get the bloody bus !!!!!!

Was there quickly at night to try the beers. Quite far, but with frequent bus service you get there quickly. Worth seeing, beerwise, but I would definitely return in spring or summertime during the day, also to enjoy wonderful forest and lake sights. And have a lunch, I remember menu looked nice. Even a walk from Potsdam in such conditions would be very nice. Service was very helpful, quite wide selection of beers for a brewpub, including mead.

My favourite place in Potsdam. It has the best beer, the Potsdamer Stange.
2nd reason to go there: The big Brotzeit for just 5,90 incl. self made bread.
We went there by bike, the cycle path from downtown Potsdam has a brand new tarmac.

Save yourself the aggravation and take the bus from the Hbf (#607, which only runs hourly, so some planning needs to be done). Actually, that was without a doubt the bumpiest bus ride I’ve ever been on (have been on smoother roller coasters), so the bicycle option might indeed be preferable. Sunny, foresty outside with an interesting play area for the kiddies, inside has lots of mounted dead animal heads and horns for those of you who like that kind of thing. Beers are, of course, worth the trip, especially their Berliner (er, Potsdamer) Weisse. A Dixieland/oompah band sent me off, complete with a ... charming German accent on the vocals (Louis couldn’t have helped but smile).

In Berlin for Green Week and we decided to have Sunday lunch somewhere out of the ordinary: a trip out to the Templin Forest on the far side of Potsdam was chosen, we knew this brewpub was here somewhere. ‘S’ Bahn out to Potsdam and then bus 607 takes you along the Templin lakeside right to the place. Across the road is a campsite and beach along with a ferry jetty and boat hire places: too cold and quiet on our visit for anybody to be about, so we had a nose around before retiring into the pub.
Lovely gardens, but empty and cold in mid-January: so we join everyone else inside. Large oblong shaped room, bar just to your left as you walk in. The walls have the heads, horns and antlers of various animals caught in the area otherwise you could have been almost anywhere. Basic wooden everything, tables, chairs, floor, bar, coat stand, etc, etc.
Service was good, English menu if required, other customers well dressed and well to do, it’s a classy place for a Sunday lunch.
The food was wonderful and filling, tradition German fare and priced keenly. Four draught beers available on our visit, all four in the party were impressed with both the beers and food, long way out of Berlin city; but worth the journey, if only to sober up on the way back!
