This brewpub of the Borbecker Dampfbierbrauerei lies -very easy to find- just beneath the train station and pedestrians area of Essen-Borbeck. But there are also plenty of parking spaces just on the brewpub area. The service is very welcoming and warm, also very fast and efficient. Food is solid: Big portions for the big prices, small portions for the small prices (soup begins at 3,90 €, a pair of Weisswürste with homemade bread for 4,90 €)....overall it was little bit too expensive. But the beer was great. I asked for the seasonal and got the Fastenbier first, which was really delicious. Also the Zwickel was quite good. You pay around 2,30 € for 0,3 l of beer, which is quite fair I think. We were sitting in the dining area (comfy, dark wood but with lots of daylight), but beside that was a big pub-style area with dark wood, old bottles, dimmed light etc. where you can sit just for a drink. It is a really nice place and we plan to go there as soon as their next two seasonal beers (Maibock and Kräusen) are out in the beginning of May.

Sehr gute und urige Atmosphäre, haben dort ein Buffet innerhalb einer geschlossenen Gesellschaft bestellt und hatten eine gute Auswahl an typischer Hausmannskost. Das sesonale Fastenbier ist auch zu empfehlen.

Immer wieder besucht und immer wieder nicht enttaeuscht worden. Die Auwahl an Bieren ist vertretbar, die Qualitaet hier neben vollkommen ausreichend. Den Service kann ich nur als zuvorkommend und humorvoll bezeichnen, aber am besten hat mir bisher immer noch das Essen gefallen, bei dem selbst die Pommes sogar noch Klasse haben. Einzig Weisswuerste wuerde ich da nicht nehmen. Denn davon haben sie keine Ahnung.

Nice place with large biergarten; Bavarian deco inside (is it because of the oktoberfest or all year round?).
Food is good (but the menu is messy). The beers are useless macro stuff.

A nice place near the Essen-Borbeck train station. I went here under the impression that it was a brewpub. Turns out I was wrong. Well, sort of. Most of the beers they serve here (I believe) are older recipes that were once brewed by the Stern brewery, but after Stern went under, the Stauder brewery was contracted to continue brewing some of the Stern brews. Some of these beers are locally distributed (Borbecker Helles), but others such as the seasonals are as far as I know only available here. So there were 4 or 5 Borbecker beers, plus some Schneider on tap. A big restaurant, inside the old brewery. Was packed on Saturday night. Had several different rooms, some dedicated to drinking, others with more of a restaurant feel, and a private party lounge as well. I believe there is a beer garden in the summer. The brews were good and fresh. I didn’t try the food, but it looked good. Overall this was definitely a worthwhile stop.
