Canít begin to think why this place is so popular. Basically a small sports bar, quite cramped, with nothing interesting on tap whatsoever. The bottle list is more impressive, though seriously overpriced. The bar tender also seemed more interested in his telephone conversation than serving me. Why waste your time here with the Hanging Bat just around the corner?

I like this place and have spent many happy evenings enjoying all manner of beers from every corner of the globe but Iím about to give it a very low rating because it is breaking a golden rule.
If a bar claims to be open to a particular time and I get turned away well before itís published closing time itís just not on. I donít care how good your beer selection is, if you claim to be open then you should be open full stop. Donít you undertstand that sometimes people will turn up at your door expecting to be served a beer if you claim to be open?
When I canít rely on a bar being open when I expect it to be, I move on. I recommend everyone else does the same. Damn, now I have to find a new hotel to stay in when Iím in Edinburgh. One with a bar next door that I can trust.

What an amazing place. Small and not very typical british.
I was there just after opening hour on a Thursday. Crowded after 30 minutes...
Not to many on tap but an amazing amount of bottles from all around The World.
Nice friendly and helpfull staff.
Placed a little bit outside the worst touristtrap places.

Excellent street corner beer bar with some well-chosen top beers of the world, ancient and modern, but some right old crap too, especially an abundance of Belgian fruit syrup pseudo-lambics suggesting that the owners do not see beer education as part of their role. I am guessing nearer 150 beers than 450. Nonetheless well worth wasting an evening of your life to visit.

This is my favourite pub in Edinburgh, Scotland and pretty much is only topped by Delirium in my pub experiences! A fantastic selection of 300 beers from all over the world (with some notable mentions for tap - Franziskaner!!) Staff are friendly and more importantly actually know, and love, the craft themselves! This is an all round great experience! Must see if your in town!

The largest selection of beer youíll find anywhere (for several hundred miles at least). If youíre looking for something in particular, unless theyíve ran out, theyíll have it or extremely friendly staff will recommend others. Gets extremely busy on certain days, as itís relatively small, but if you can sneak in on a quiet weekday, very worth it.

Excellent selection of beers but in dire need of refurbishment (or at least it was when we there in Jul 2011). The toilets stank and even in the bar the smell was that of a bar cleaned with a dirty mop. Perhaps easier to ignore when itís busier but the place was tatty when we were there.

My only problem with The Brauhaus is the constant sport (usually football) on the TV, I find it distracting and unpleasant but I realize Iím in a minority on that one.

Small corner bar with an amazing beer menu. Lots of interesting ales from all over the world. Multiple large screen TVs so you can choose which match to watch. Close to Ninaís Mini Market & Cloisters. One of the best beer venues in Edinburgh.
