The kiosk is easy to reach along the Severinstraße. Went there on a Saturday noon and the fridges were completely empty, only some leftover bottles of boring beers were standing around. Very dissappointed. The beers that were left were a) boring, blend, overpriced Dutch lagers ( Albert Heijn Pils for 2 €) or b) overpriced craft beers (some standard 0.3l Britsh for 4,90€). No new ticks for me anyway. Would not recommend it and would never come back ( the advertised 450 different beers are clearly a joke).

It´s hard to rate this place. On one hand it´s a spectacular selection this little kiosk has, with loads of beer from all over the world. I can´t understand how they find the space. On the other hand the service is terrible. The lady (who worked when I was there) was nice and all that, but she hadn´t a clue what they where selling. So asking for a special beer was out of the question.
It´s rather expensive, around 3 euro for a pale lager. On the other hand (!) that´s rather cheap for a pale lager all the way from Nepal or Venezuela, countries hard to get beer from...
I had both hands full when I left the kiosk. If I ever come back to Cologne, I will for sure come back to this kiosk.

As far as appearances go, this place looks like your typical kiosk with one difference. It advertises itself as offering 300 different types of beer. After reading an article online, I decided I needed to check it out. Essentially, this shop is a novelty store boasting a lot of beers from around the world but with little consistent quality. There were a few surprises though: some Flying Dog from the US, some decent Belgian brews, and a fair amount of offerings from Bavaria. Unfortunately, the consistency just wasn’t there (there was one Flying Dog offering). However, when considering the beer store wasteland that is Cologne, this is an oasis. The big disadantage are the prices. Much international stuff they’re offering is extremely marked up, which shouldn’t be a surprise from such a small outlet. Regardless, it’s worth a check out. You’re sure to find at least some interesting, decent beer to take home.
