Stumbled in here just in time for the last round after a 13-hour train ride. Four beers on tap, all rather average. Bog-standard brewpub decor, copper kettles on display, lots of wood, though not too cramped. Very friendly service, got a complimentary beerschnaps before leaving.
Tillhör klassen stordriftspubar. Furubord, enkel klassisk tysk mat. Öl från det egna bryggeriet. Det funkar, men är inte heller så märkvärdigt. Plus för den ekivoka automaten på herrarnas. I de djupaste vattnen simmar...
Located in the heart of the poshy area of the city centre featuring expensive shops, the brewpub has ample space for a thirsty and hungry visitor not willing to spend a fortune on food and drink. The selection includes 4 beers brewed on the spot. The staff kidly informed me that no flights were available, but, well, there is no problem that cannot be amicably resolved, so I got my flights of all the four beers, and paid just a minor donation. The beer may not be anything extraordinary, but it is decent, especially the Winterbier and the Hefeweizen. I have only tried tomato soup from the impressive menu, but it tasted good. A nice place, friendly staff, decent beer, and good food. Will gladly drop by again.
This place used to be it, more or less, when it came to (slightly more) interesting beer in the city. Recent developments have changed that, there are more attractive destinations for beer geeks now. Nothing wrong with this place, though, the beers are quaffable, albeit rather safe, the cuisine is pretty decent comfort food, and prices are fair. The seasonals can be pleasant surprises; I recall their raspberry wheat (in Reinheitsgebot country, no less!) fondly, for instance.
BrewPub in an attractive convenient location on a canal in the centre of Hamburg. 4 of their own brews on tap. Fast enthusiastic service great food & decent prices. Nice atmosphere and decor. Although the beer is just OK I really liked this place. This for me is a great model for a place to enjoy beer. I wish there were more like this in the UK.
Visited July 2013. A pleasant enough place near a canal. There is some shiny brewing equipment on show. I ate the house schnitzel which was quite good. The beers were cloudy and boring in the German brewpub tradition and the prices were a bit high.
Brewpub in central Hamburg, right by the Alster. Narrow patio facing the water, lots of seats indoors. Traditional German beers, regulars and seasonals along with more common German restaurant food. Beers was fresh, not spectacular in any way. Staff did not speak English, and was not too busy with service. Worth stopping by, if passing by. Not worth a detour.
Very fresh and light place with a nice view over the canal. Only their own beer on tap, but I liked them. The dunkel was great! Friendly staff, not too chatty though. It’s not the end of the world if you miss this place, but it’s kind of central so it’s a good waterhole while strolling the city.

Nice place with good space and good view of the copper used for brewing. I had their three regulars and their märzen so they must have 4 taps and not 3 taps as is shown. Beers were all fresh and good quality and were all quite malty.
Visited on a Friday night in July ’08.
Quite a well furnished modern brewpub by the canals in the centre of Hamburg.
Good atmosphere - pretty busy, we just stood up around a table and worked our way through the house beers which were adequate.
Ok modern brewpub but nothing to rave over.
Have visited this downtown brewpub a couple of times. Can at times be very crowded. It is a brewpub, with both regular and season beers, but it is more a restaurent, meaning they are not that much inte the beers. The food are lovely german dishes, if you are in the citycenter of Hamburg, it´s a nice place to make a pitstop.
