Nice restaurant with good food & prompt service. Cozy beer-garden. The brewery building is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. Beer-wise you get 7 taps, all a bit generic but not bad. Typical "regional" brewery fare.
Visited on 21st April 2014. Got a taxi out from the Hbf as it was a good way out of town.
Huge beer garden but we opted to sit inside as the weather wasn’t so good. Lots of the usual wooden seating and decent decor that German brewery taps favour. Decent range of beer, prices good, service was good. Liked the place although not sure I’d rush back as it’s such a hike!
A good walk out from the centre of town, but worth it when you get there. The Hacklberg brewery is a large complex with two buildings and a large beer garded to seat aroound 1000 or more. It was a lovely summer’s evening and the beer was very pleasnt. They had a large TV showing the football, but it wasn’t intrusive. 3 beers available on tap at reasonable prices.
Very dissapointing. We’d travelled a lot to get to that point, since this is a bit far from the center. And we had to encounter probably one of the rudest service in my experience. Beer is nice, food is good (although portions are pretty small), prices - ok. If you are nearby, come to visit, but travell there specially for that place? Don’t be silly like us.
PS: There is a very good beershop close to that place in the brewery, there are very friendly staff and good options in german beers. Go there instead.
The biggest Biergarten we came across, but not the most impersonal or crowded. People are scattered all over the big garden, mostly locals just enjoying their beer and having some food, meeting friends, etc. Service was quick and polite, a bit Eastern European, namely: always taking your empty glass from the moment you’re finished and asking if you want another. For Western European people this might seem rude, but I know it’s good etiquette in Eastern Europe (Czech Rep, Slovakia, etc...). Food was ok, but rather expensive. Did like the buffet style thing, where you could choose your stuff. Did not like them charging for ketchup and mustard bags. That’s just cheap! Probably also Eastern European. In the Biergarten beer choice is limited to about 3 or 4, but they told us we could try more beers inside the brewpub. The whole place had a good feel to it, and should I ever be around Passau again, I’d visit it again. Preferably in summer time. ;-)
The huge beer garden, a lot of steps away from the castle-like brewery in the Hacklberg quarter, is the real attraction here. Very popular with locals, bikers and other beer-lovers. Don’t miss it......
