Large brewpub premises about 20 minutes walk from the HBF (tram also available).
Located in a former railway station there are a number of rooms inside and some railway memorabilia is evident.
Have visited here a few time over the years and have set inside and out (you put a card behind the bar and kind of help yourself to beers!).
Most recent visit was Oct ’10 for DM’s 40th bash. We spent 2 hours here and took on a decent lunch as well as the more than adequate house beers including the Gose.
The place was fairly busy and the service held up well.
Definately reccomended when in Leipzig.

4 taps. Leipziger Gose is very good. Service was good. Food was OK. Reasonable prices. Nice interior. Easy to find/reach by car but I’m not sure how it goes with the public transportation.

OK brewpub. The food was very good, way better than the beers. The gose is a big disappointment : barely sour and closer to a belgian wit than anything.

Great brewpub. Inside a former train station (for lines linking Saxony to Bavaria). Outside, if you can see over the construction, stands the oldest remaining Kopfbahnof terminus in Europe, site of a future U-Bahn station. Professional brewer, for sure. The train-themed line of beers is worth steaming though, certainly for the Gose, but the pils warrants attention, too. Note: This Gose, while unique, isn’t the one you’re looking for.
I’ve had good and iffy service, though I’ve only ever been there during the dead hours. Lots of partitioned areas, includes an arcade-like Wintergarten and a small outside Biergarten, replete with sandbox and small play area for the kiddies. Inside’s a nice combination of steel, iron, copper, and wood, and I could tell I’d sat in a former ticket-selling area. Could do without the muzak. For the food, hearty local fare, good Haxe, and I enjoyed my Kraut and Leberkäs a bit too much - though the beer tasting might have had something to do with that..
Nearest tram stop is, of course, Bayrischer Bahnhof, via the 2, 9, or 16.

One of my favourite pubs in Germany. Always good food/service./beer! And not helping being a train buff this bar is like drinking in a railway museum! Have been here 5-6 times and the beers are all good examples of their styles, particularly the Gose, I could really taste the coriander, like Nethergate Umbel Ale in England! A must visit pub, you can’t be disappointed!

Hausbrauerei in a part of a former railway station, a beautiful building that will be a station again, albeit underground and for local traffic, instead of long distance trains to Bavaria. Very nice interior with a lot of different rooms around the shinig coppers. Good food and four regular beers, including the Leipziger Gose, plus seasonals.

Very nice brewpub, located in an old railway station, with a very thorough train theme throughout. There’s a railway car inside the place, as well as small model trains and other train references all over. Including the "motto", which has a pun on trains in it.
The place is pretty modern-looking, and in addition to style it has a bit of soul. The customers are mostly normal Germans out for an evening meal or beer, but the place is kind of noisy, because of the bare walls.
The music is dreadful.
The food is traditional German fare, and quite well made.
No complaints about the service. I had to do with 3-4 different people, and they were all very helpful. The amount of English they speak seems to vary, but they are helpful regardless.
You can buy Gose in bottles to take away.

Big, nice looking modern style German brewpub with a more ambitious lineup than ordinary. After trying the Gose at Ohne Bedenken their beers fell kind of short, but still a worthwile visit.

The old train station has been transformed in a nice, modern place. Great food, top service, and of course Gose.A must visit.
