76 /100 KERßENBROCKSTR. 8
“Visited on 31st Jan 2020. Large single roomed taproom out in Munster's suburbs. About a 25-30 min walk to centre of town I reckon, we took a cab from the hbf. 12 beers on, board hadn't been updated but 2 set flights available plus small pours. Tried the standard range and seasonal flights. Beer quality is OK, not top draw craft beer but OK. Good mix of styles. Service at the bar and not table service. Staff friendly, prices good. Decent enough venue and a should visit if in town but don't make a special journey“

“Moderate sized, modern looking tap room, with a big wooden bar and brewing equipment to be seen in a tiled area at the back. Decent amount of seating inside with tables also outside on the street. Service was friendly. 13 beers on tap, mostly own with some guests, all own beers are bio. When I visited the tap selection was strongly dominated by light hoppy beers. Tried several house beers, most were OK or better but nothing was spectacular. Prices quite reasonable. The best house beer that I had was the Maibock. Worth a look if in the area.“

“Back in the progressive late 1970s and early 1980s, this was a place for very non-progressive students to hang out... which is why I disliked it. Times have changed and Pinkus' organic beers are now sold in the respective food stores all over Germany. Objectively, I ought to like the place now - but old prejudice dies hard, and to walk in still requires a slight effort. ;-)“

Mole (Restaurant)

AN DER GERMANIA BRAUEREI 5
“Rather large place, mixture of a bar and a restaurant. It is located next to the 'Dackel' brewery which also provides beer for this place and it's just around the corner from 'Flaschenmeisterei'. Looks very modern, somewhat minimalistic, almost sterile. The tap and bottle selection are overall not bad at all, however not very exciting by ratebeer standards either. Some german and Scottish craft beer accompanying the obligatory macro Pils and Weizen, supported by a handful of Belgian and US choices. Prices are decent but not cheap for such a remote place in Germany. The bartender was very friendly and attentive, had a good time there overall. In itself not really worth a detour but a combination with the two other places mentioned above is possible.“

Flaschenmeisterei (Beer Store)

“Medium-sized bottle shop a bit off the city centre with all kinds of beverages available, but mainly beer and lemonade. Beerwise, it has international craft beer like Brewdog, but also some locals like Finne and German beer in general on offer. Not the most interesting selection in Münster, but still above your average selection in German bottle shops. The staff is friendly and attentive, prices are solid. I prefer Getränkefeinkost and Braukunstwerk nevertheless.“

Stuhlmacher (Restaurant)

“Pretty nice restaurant in the not so old old town of Münster. Looks very traditional with lots of wood and old interior, maybe not as unique as Pinkus but still a gem. They have twelve taps if I recall correctly, mostly macro stuff, but they have their own beer as well, a classic but well-hopped and pleasant Lager. The staff was very friendly and talkative, had a small conversation about beer in general which I didn't start. Overall a really nice place, although I didn't try the food. Wouldn't come here for the beer again, but it might be worth a visit for their house beer.“

“Pretty standard organic grocery store in the city centre of Münster. Has many of the Pinkus beers available but not all of them. Other beers are the usual suspects in these kinds of shops like Finne and Neumarkter Lammsbräu, plus there are some organic ciders which might be of interest. Prices are average, staff is friendly.“

“Organic super-market in the basement of a dull shopping-mall, close the Muenster Picasso Museum; ridiculously small selection of some german organic brews, mainly from Finne, Pinkus and Lammsbräu. Nothing of interest there, that could not be found in any other german " Bio-Markt". Not recommended!“

“Classic Brauhaus with lots of wooden interior and blue tiles on the wall. Very cozy with a relaxed atmosphere, although it can be very crowded during the weekends when finding a free table can be difficult. If you were able to get one, you can expect hearty dishes with lots of meat and potatoes for reasonable prices. It's not really sophisticated but great when you crave for that kind of food. More than a handful of taps available which can be ordered in 0.1 l portions, all the other Pinkus beers can be ordered in bottles. If you cannot drink them all in one session, you can pick them up in the shop as well. Service was quick, prices were reasonable. Recommended!“

“Typical and traditional food for the region of Münster in Westphalia. Also seasonal and regional dishes on the menu. Very traditional and historical house with an open fireplace in its dining room, very cosy. They serve all the Pinkus Müller-beers in proper glassware. The restaurant is in a street next to the brewery.“

“Visited on Friday 11th December 2015. A good trek from the Hbf gets you to the brewpub, smallish rooms, dark and cozy, traditional wood panelling, plenty of blue and white crockery adorning the walls. 6 of their own beers on and available in 1 euro tasters, which was handy. Food good, service good. Liked the place and worthy of a visit.“

“nice place. Very English looking. Good tap selection of English beers. Bottled English beers were interesting but way too expensive. The Gruthaus Uberwasser-alt was amazing. If they have more from this local brewery I suggest you try them.“

“Located on the edge of the beautiful Old Town, this brewpub, renowned for its Altbier, is a nice and cozy place to enjoy decent beer and a good Westphalian meal. The interior consists of two fining halls, a little dark. and some benches and tables outside in good weather. The selection consists of six different beers produced on location, and more can be bought in the adjacent shop. Friendly and reasonably knowledgeable staff. Not very cheap for Germany but definitely worth a visit.“

“Really great food with some typical specialities from the area of Münster served in the restaurant or on the pati, directly in the most famous street of Münster. Several beers on tap and also several bottled beers. Also available is the "Stuhlmacher Lager", which is brewed for the restaurant in Bamberg.“

“For tourists, Pinkus is a very nice to experience the typical Münsterland style (although I personally only like the malt beers there). The food is quite good, and the ambience is typical for a German brewery.“

“Visited several times. Good oldfashioned brewpub, typical German. Good beer, all biological. Typical German food, tasty and not too expensive. A small shop sells the beers of the brewery. Heartly recommended when in Münster.“

“Brewery and brewery-tap in the heart of Münster; the tap is a gorgeous, old fashioned restaurant : old furniture, low ceilings and several cozy rooms, partially ornated with blue ( dutch) tiles… Do not only sample the special Pinkus brews, also the meals are far better than in most of all these depressing german! restaurants“

“Only brewery left in the beautiful city of Münster. Rightfully famous for their Altbier that is very different from those of Düsseldorf. They brew quite a few other beers as well, all biological. Very good and atmospheric restaurant, great beers. There are in fact two restaurants, served from the same kitchen, the one furthest from the brewery front is the real Brauereigaststätte. A small shop sells all their beers plus some other stuff, you may have to ring the doorbell.“
