The name of the street was not mentioned on my map. It did not appear at the street. The easiest way to find the place is to find the casino, go to the opposite side of the stret, enter between the Italian restaurant Voglia toward the Vogila Hotel, turn left and pass the Chinese restaurant - excellent by the way - and you will find the BräuHaus. Wonder why they use the 2 dots above the a (probably lousy German). As mentioned by others the place is huge and in German Beer Hall style. You can see the brewing equipment but they were not currently brewing at it as they could not get raw materials. Only 1 beer on tap, a witbeer, brewed in Rumania. 2 bottled beers, lagers from Carlsberg and Tuborg. Friendly English and French speaking bartender told me that people came to the place to eat, not to drink beer. Food looked good and cheap. Go into the supermarket next to BräuHaus. There you can get the same beers as elsewhere plus a few more, just cheacper.
Massive place, just under ground, with a sleak restaurant setup. They only had two beers on tap when I visited, and both were infected - sad to see. Huge food menu too, with an English version available. Hopefully they clean those beers up.
Huge underground beer hall, with pretty brew setup behind the bar. Beer was pretty good, and this should be one of the first stops in Tirana. Pleasant service, huge food menu. Had a huge plate of grilled meat and it was fine. Only four of six taps were pouring on an April evening. Well worth a visit, I’ll come back when in the city.
A downstairs beerhall outside of the Albanian sun. Temperature was very cool which suited my friend and I as we had been bitten to death by mosquitoes in Durres. The staff were friendly enough letting us sample the beer before we decided which we were going to eat. It was just us there so a little quiet.
This place is tucked away on a side street just off the Rinia Park. Cavernous interior, beer hall style seating, gets busy around 8 PM. I sat at the bar and very friendly and efficient staff, lead by assistant brewer Egin lead me through a complimentary tasting flight of their beers, six of them when I visited. All were tasty, and several were tasty enough to order more. Food was good as well. Nice to see a place brewing something other than pale lagers, keep it up!
Thoroughly enjoyed two visits to the Brauhaus during a stay in Tirana. It’s only just off the main boulevards but in a back street area which means it doesn’t seem to attract anywhere near as many people as other places very close by, which is a shame. You need to be looking for it to find it. In a country where beer is dominated by fairly non-descript lagers, both local and imported. the beers Brauhaus produce are to a very high standard in comparison. Staff are friendly, food menu comprehensive, what we had was of decent quality, and very reasonably priced. Well worth searching out if in Tirana.

Albania’s first(?) brewpub is large German beerhall style restaurant. We could find address easily but restaurant itself is not as easy to spot as there is no BrauHaus-signs outside. But take the door with "Beerzone"-sticker. Service was excellent, English was spoken and credit card accepted. Food was also good. Beers - 5 available (excl. Helles) - are quite typical "not the most premium brewpub" products, but perhaps the best you can get which is brewed in Albania. Brewery equipment is visible when you go to toilet. Quite big capacity and modern SALM-brewing system.
