Visited on a Saturday afternoon in July 2015. Place is on a lakeside so sat on the terrace to enjoy the sunshine and watch the boats go by. There’s also a self service section too. Service was excellent and had the 2 beers plus an unsullied Berliner Weisse. Beer was ok but the location is the star of this place.
I was on the verge of believing that my GPS had, quite litterally, taken me for a ride again, before I finally found the brewery, beautifully situated on the shore of the Jungfernsee. The interior, apart from the cozy restaurant, offers the visitor free insight into the process of producing beer, but that is roughly where the staff’s willingness to impart knowledge stops. I asked for the seasonal Top-Secret-Bier and had it, but the waiter refused to tell me what style it belonged to, giving instead some uneasy answers about the kind of hops used. The selection is impressive in theory, as each month there is a special brew for the thirsty visitor, but apart from it there is only the usual Helles available. The food is decent, as is the beer, and the praces, given the superb location, are fair. I will visit the place again if I fancy a walk by the lakeshore in Potsdam.
Ambiance sympa, surtout l ete parait-il, mais le lac etait gele en mars. Service sympa quoi que un peu lent au demarrage. Il y a 3 bieres, brassees sur place et qui suivent les saisons, mais cela reste pauvre en choix, comme souvent en Allemagne. Les prix sont correctes surtout vu l’environnement tres riches des maisons et palais aux alentours. Cela merite le passage, peut etre pas le detour... Sauf en ete ou cela doit etre tres sympa, meme avec de la pils, fan de bieres seront un peu decus.
Update, 21 janvier 2014, après plusieurs passages et plusieurs fois, la personne portant une barbe au bar est d’une impolitesse et d’une antipathie rarement vues. On attend 20 minutes pour rien, il se traine, est lent, puis nous engueule parce que SA bouteille a son flip flop monté à l’envers, alors qu’il nous l’a vendue comme cela!!! Est-ce de notre faute et une raison pour gueuler dans le restaurant??
Désolé pour le reste du personnel, qui mérite mieux, on va encore la bas en été, vu que LUI, ne sert pas dehors, donc Biergarten, sinon rien pour moi.
Value perd un point, tout a augmenté, le Brezel, les frites, les saucisses, et c’est devenu cher pour de la bouffe de ce genre. Le restaurant, je ne sais pas, je n’y vais plus.
Very picturesque brewery inside and specially outside. Located in the shore of Jungfernsee, it has great view over the lake. Couple of 100 meters from the park to the south which worth to check as well..
Beers are rather decent, Meierei Hell was good unfiltered, they also serve their own Berliner Weisse. Price is cheap and food little snacks are also accommodated on the menu. Definitely worth the visit just for the scenery which some unfiltered brew beer.
They local transit authority may have changed the route numbering since Marko visited, it’s currently #603 to Höhenstraße and about a minute’s walk from there (it’s also right on the Mauerradweg if you’re into cycling). Didn’t go inside, but who would want to on such a gorgeous day? Seems like a lot of others had the same idea, a popular place among both tourists and locals, lots of picnic tables and stunning views of the lake. Beers weren’t terribly good, but weren’t bad. A note from today that might save you some time (or a missed tick): there were two queues, one for food and beer, the other only for beer, and the offerings were different at the end of each line. Highly recommended for the outside ambiance.
Large brewpub in a beautiful part of Potsdam, the capital of the state of Brandenburg. In a building that lay derelict since WW II, painstakingly rebuilt. Nice interior, large terrace outside next to the lake, great view on the Jungfernsee. Food is good, beers are decent. Bus connection from the city center, tram + bus from the station. You can also get there by boat.
The perfect place to end a day trip to Potsdam. After visiting the gardens and palaces of Potsdam we went to see Cecilienhof. A few beer by the lake on a sunny Sunday afternoon was very nice. We walked both ways. It was about 3 kilometers walk from the city centre.
Visited with Tomaz. Nice location with an insane amount of work that went into rebuilding the whole area and building.
A great area to begin with, loaded with history from the Cecilienhof spot of the Potsdam Conference of 1945 to the surrounding park, residence to Frederick II. The whole place is filled with the vibes of history. Visit this place in the summer and try it in the winter when the water is frozen and snow covers the ground and you have one nice atmosphere.
The brewery has an inside dining area as well as outdoor where you can order light food and beers, while having a nicer menu inside. Growlers can be bought and filled inside. Found the beers to be interesting as far as taste goes, the choice much like everywhere in Germany is limited to the Hell, Spezial (seasonal) and the Weizen which was also available.
Service is nice, the staff still finds time to joke and chat even if at times there can be one crazy line forming for beers.
The older guy - metal dude filling the beers is just pissed off most of the time until you pay your beer or unless you have boobs.
I guess this spot is the proof that you can make up for the lack of beer by having one hell of a nice location. This place fits that bill.
The beer garden is a perfect spot on a sunny day, and two of the three beers on offer were really good. You can choose between the self-service area or sit down for table service. Did not try the food except the freshly baked bretzels. Relaxed, family friendly.
If you are on one of the hop off hop on bus tours of Porsdam, this is very close to one of the stops, the guide even mentions the brewery.
