Located at the heart of what can reasonably be called the Old Town in Kiel, the big brewpub seems to draw crowds of all ages and from all walks of life (well, I visited the place on a busy Saturday evening, so that might be one of the reasons.) Not exactly beautiful but still cozy, with copper brown walls and (vaulted) ceilings, it creates an atmosphere of a stylish but pseudo-oldie place to hang out. The staff are busy but friendly, although not all seem to know enough about the locally brewed beer, which is acceptable, if not extraordinary. Other than the local produce only a few basic German beers are to be had but that is acceptable in a brewpub, I think. The food is decent, too. Not pricey, not poshy, just a little to noisy but that is OK on a Saturday night :-) Will be back one day for sure.

The selection is not of the greatest, but more understandable because they brew their own beer. The athmosphere is ok, a bit touristic.

Visited september 2009, just before running the Berlin Marathon :-). Nice cosy brewpub, placed in the citycenter. Easy to get to and parking is within walking distance. Friendly staff, the beers were well served in ok condition.

Nice brewpub in Kiel with their homemade beer. 2 available at the time Kieler bier & Kieler Pils- for the moment they were out of their seasonal choice.
Nice outdoor seating. Had some very good flammenkuchen. They also make their own licquer- decent.
We really enjoyed ourselves for a couple of hours and also brought 2 bottlers of Kielerbier home with us

Ideal location walking from where the cruise ships dock and the main train station. A fair amount on tap and a nice space for a snack or meal.

Neat place in downtown Kiel. They have about 5 beers on tap including one or two from outside breweries and a few bottled beers to choose from. I had a couple of their beers which were not bad at all. The service was good and servers were very friendly. A nice relaxing atmosphere. The meals served seem to be good German pub fare. The brewery is not fancy but just a nice place to stop by, relax, have a few pints of the local beers and something to eat. Good place to check out if your ever in Kiel.

A dark cozy cave at the end of a walking street downtown Kiel. Really polite, quick and well English speaking staff that made the stay quite nice. Did not try the food, but It both looked and smelled quite good from where I was sitting. Downstairs you can see the brew kettles fermenting. The place was actually quite a big place, and I can imagine the noise level is quite high when the place is packed. They were unfortunately playing the CD "The best of summer 1999" on repeat when I was there which naturally drags the total score a bit down... Otherwise a must if you are in Kiel.

A short visit in November 2009. A nice place and easy to find. Did not try the food but tried a Kieler bier, 20 cl Helles and 20 cl Schwarzbier. Ok and easy to drink, before I ran down to the harbour. I had to reach the ferry to Gøteborg!
