Restaurant Wienges (Restaurant)
NEUSSER STR. 55
“Former Wienges brewpub, at the moment the beer (a lovely altbier) is being brewed for them, supposedly by Frankenheim, though the beer tastes different than Frankenheim. As for the aesthetics, it is a fairly typical Rhine area restaurant, with a wood-laden, brown interior, occasionally adorned with stained glass. The slightly snappy waiter is also something typical for this region. I deem this to be worth popping in, if only for a small glass of "their" delicious altbier. It might also be worthwhile to try their mussels - we did not have any but their smell reaching our nostrils from nearby tables was rather enticing.“

Dachsbau (Restaurant)
HUBERTUSSTRASSE 79-81
“Yes, this one is really rather a kitchy establishment. When you have 18 beers on tap, you better arrange for the offer to rotate, otherwise your patrons will grow tired of the selection and some beers will eventually go stale. Frankly, I’ve never experienced such an amount of flawed, old beer in a pub with so many taps. I would have been better off choosing a pub with a single Diebels tap than this one. Oh, the food was ok, while the prices were rather hefty.“

“Classic interior, a bit old style, even dull and a bit sad (high ceilings, poor decoration), I feel like in an old canteen. Three beers usually on tap, but frankly you can miss them, although the Weizen is quite perfumy. From the plates I see, I would not bother eating here.“

“Very traditional brewpub, which means also sort of ’cold and lifeless’. Almost exclusively woody interior, quite dark. Their main beer, an altbier is a good one but this place should be visited for its excellent kolsch and original, out of the ordinary hefeweizen. Service was ok, food was nice - both pork knuckle and mussels.“

Dachsbau (Restaurant)
HUBERTUSSTRASSE 79-81
“Wow, what a broad selection of widely available and - with the exception of the Bohemian beers - pretty mediocre beers in this kitchy and bourgeois pub… It is really hard to find such a modest Beer Menu in any other german restaurant. Only recommended for beginners. “

Herbst Pitt (Restaurant)
MARKTSTRASSE 77
“Traditional large mock-brewpub ( brewing ceased here in 1972), quite similar to Düsseldorf and Cologne brewpubs or - maybe - a bit more bourgeois. The house-beer comes from Gleumes and is worth a detour!“

“Very traditional looking Brauereigaststätte, small patio, large and roomy interior. Three beers: Obergäriges Lagerbier (Alt), PIls (since october 2010, used to be a Helles) and Weizen. Very good food, both classical and special dishes.“

Herbst Pitt (Restaurant)
MARKTSTRASSE 77
“Was here back in mid-July. I love places like this: old and worn and dark and wooden with modern people somehow inhabiting a pre-modern space, and cheeky waiters who aren’t afraid to sit down with them. Hearty, delicious food, and though you’re looking at filling up on the house Alt, it’s a good one.“

“The alt tasted like a cross between an Alt and a Kolsch, and was no more than OK to my taste. The food was beautifully cooked and on this evidence it is worth a visit“

“As far is I know, it’s Krefelds oldest (and propably the only actual) brewpub on the margin of the centre with a traditional ambience and a nice homely, familiar atmosphere. The attendants there were kind, friendly and advertent, (beer)prices were reasonable. Tasted there the 3 kind of brews (Hell, Lager, Weizen) their have in March. Deservs anyway a visit, if you maybe visit the city oneself or the Niederrhein-region. “

Dachsbau (Restaurant)
HUBERTUSSTRASSE 79-81
“Thanks to eaglefan538’s rating, I found this place too. Nice food, friendly waiters and quite cozy interior. You get the feeling you are in someones living room. For a German place, the selection is vast and varied. Some Czech beers, year-round doppelbock on tap, and some 25-30 bottled ones, including a sticky kriek. Unfortunately only had the time for dinner and three beers here, would have loved to be here all night.“

Trinkgut (Beer Store)
WEGGENHOFSTRASSE 31
“There’s a lot of beer shops all over the area, try a google search for getränkemarkt krefeld, but this is the one closest to city centre, just a short walk from Gleumes Brauerei. It is also one of the two best stocked of those I visited. Well worth a visit if you’re looking for German beers. As usual in Germany, not much foreign, but on the other hand, it’s not needed either.“

Herbst Pitt (Restaurant)
MARKTSTRASSE 77
“A regular restaurant, only interesting because of its housebeer brewed by the local brewpub/restaurant Gleumes Brauerei. The waitor was friendly and quick, the prices on the meny seemed fine, but only had a beer. If you visit Dachsbau, this is worth a visit as it’s just around the corner.“

“Krefeld is probably not the place you go to for the beer, but if you find yourselves in this town, be sure to visit Gleumes. Fine beer, also their weizen, and the food is worth a try too. I went there twice, and was lucky to get a new beer the second day. The waiters were quick and friendly, and the interior sort of thirties in a more modern way. Be sure to visit the place called Herbst Pitt as well when in town, that’s the only place you get the Herbst Pitt beer from Gleumes.“

Dachsbau (Restaurant)
HUBERTUSSTRASSE 79-81
“Man, what can I say? You can’t get any better than this for a pub in Krefeld. Stop by if you are in the area, the selection of taps is impressive and the bottles don’t disappoint, either. Very nice atmosphere, all sorts of photo-sakes. The outdoor biergarten was very relaxing on a nice cool summer evening and we had a great time sipping beers that just aren’t that easy to get in the States. Gleumes and Dachsbau are two places I wouldn’t miss in Krefeld.“

“Another fine German stop. Beer is the highlight, although the food and atmosphere is likewise enjoyable. Only had lunch here, so not sure about the dinner scene, but the outdoor patio was very enjoyable on a sunny day. Their altbier is worth a sampling or two!“

“Great Brewery and restaurant. Local German clientele. Bauern-Omlette always a good choice to go with their lager. Service friendly and quick. Will bring a new glass if they see yours is empty. Not expensive. Enjoy! Open all day on Saturday. Sunday: 17-24.“
