You have to go or drive up a narrow street to get there but it is worth it. It was already full just after it opened at 12 am. Ok service, food was not so good. But let’s be serious - you’re not gonna go to a legendary place like this for the food, will you? Their lichtenhainer is very good, its legendary status is well deserved. What I found slightly disturbing was that the overall sales volume of the pub might be on the side of the Kostritzer Schwarzbier, which they also have on draft. And what I found most intriguing was that most of the brewing equipment was placed outside in the garden, in the heat of the sun. Go there, by all means. Just for the beer. It’s a one beer destination like Prague’s U Fleku, and not one to be missed.

It’s a fantastic house-garden, charming, relaxing, with water flowing next to the biergarten; full of wood decoration, indoor and outdoor; the food is quite good; they brew only one beer, simple, but it’s a pleasant one.
This place really deserves a visit, for the experience; amazing to find a brewery in a residential area like that; I was there in the summer, but I believe in the winter, inside, it gets warm and cozy, the best place where to spend a snowy evening.

Visited summer 2011. Had to park the car in the city center ( due to road work ) and we walked up some narrow streets, and it was a very, very hot summerday, at last we arrived at destination, ready for a beer... We sat in the lovely beergarden, enjoying the well served beer, and had a nice chat with the landlady. This place is for sure worth a visit if you are in the area.

Food was excellent and the beer was deeply satisfying. Love the place itself, quiet and shaded, breezy, sound of running water from the fountains, lots of tall trees and flowers about, very peaceful. Absolutely worth the trek from central Jena, and I’d argue worth a sunny afternoon’s visit from Leipzig or Weimar.

In a residential area (thought the GPS was messed up and passed by the place initially). Restaurant is in the back. Nice little place with good food. Have a couple other beers on tap, but if you make the effort to get here, you’re probably only interested in the Weissbier anyway (available to go as well).

From the street it looks like a ordinary house, walk around and there is a large outside area, partly covered, and the entrance to a cosy place with good food at very decent prices, and of course the main attraction: Wöllnitzer Weisbier, a sour wheatbeer. Like Berliner Weisse and Gose you can also get it with syrup or some Schnapps. Bit out of town, there are regular buses, but it is still some 10 minutes walk from the busstop.
