Great brewpub by a lake a little drive outside Potsdam. It was raining so we sat inside. The biergarten looks fantastic for a sunny day, though. We were offered a spontaneous tour of the brewery. They have recently expanded with extra much bigger tanks in order to accomodate the increased demand on their bottled range. They had seven or eight of their own beers available in either bottles or on tap. The food was okay.
Well situated in a pretty town by a lake, just near the town of Caputh, so we got some jokes out of that one. Inside has a copper mash tun and boiler at one end of the long hall, maybe just for decoration, and lots of stuffed animals, for roughly the same purpose. Six beers or so of draft, another four in bottles. Didn’t try the food but it looked tasty. Staff was friendly than average. Pleasant stop.
Charming rustic brewpub built out of an old hunting lodge, amid the trees not far from the lake. Lots of hiking trails and plenty of parking, but there is a bus stop not far down the road (Kieskutenberg stop, for the 607 bus from Potsdam’s main train station). Solid German comfort food and lots of antlers on the walls. I think the coppery kit on display is just for show, with the real thing in the back. I’ve had a hard time finding the beers in good nick -- lots of diacetyl -- but if that doesn’t bother you then you might love them. What I really like is the playground and petting zoo out front for the kids. Everybody wins.
Visited on a cold January saturday with family and friends. The ambiance is comfy, with decorations related to hunting and beer. The restaurant was quite full when we visited. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, willing to offer background info on the beers available. The food was excellent, and the prices reasonable, especially for Potsdam. Getting there might be a bit troublesome for people without a car though.
Located on a woody slope of the hills between Potsdam and Caputh (Kaput??), this (former?) hunting lodge is am oasis of tranquility, far from the madding crowd of the city. The interior is decorated with hunting trophies, and has ample space for visitor, wishing to enjoy a quiet evening or afternoon sitting on a wooden bench and eating very decent food and drinking reasonable beer. The selection includes the brewery’s own produce, 3 beers on tap, 5 bottled, and 2 kinds of mead. The staff are very friendly, and the place, despite its location off the beaten track, seems to have a core of regulars. Inexpensive, unpretensious, and decent. I will gladly come back again one day.
En plein milieu des bois, nourriture très bonne, BIO, les bières sont sympas, le perosnnel aussi, mais parfois pas rapide, mais bon, on va quand on a le temps! Le prix sont logiques. Leur bière se trouvent aussi dans le Bio-Markt de la ville de Berlin.
Place review #100 !!! After a seven minutes bus ride from Hauptbahnhof (on foot it’s quite impossible) I came to this beer oasis in Potsdam. I’ve visited the town the whole day, so I needed some fresh, well made beers and they satisfied my needs. Stange, Lager, Potsdamer Weiss, Pils and Nikolator, all fresh, all more or less tasteful, all cheap. Loved the cosy atmosphere and the fast, friendly and caring service. Will surely come back when in Potsdam.
Of all the beer venues I’ve visited over the years this one involved one of the most ardous journeys - Oct ’10 (DM’s 40th bash).
We took the RB train from Berlin HBF and some 30 minutes later alighted at Potsdam HBF. There is a bus from said HBF that takes you within a few yards of this venue - I do encourage you to take it !
We took the other option for some reason which was a tram to near Templiner see after which we got hopelessly lost, spent more than hour than we should have done, walked (trespassed?) down a railway line, jumped a fence onto the footpath bridge over the lake and eventually arrived at the Braumanufaktur some 2 hours after arriving in Potsdam!
The place is akin to an old hunting lodge with deer/moose heads adorning the walls.
3 of their own beers were available on tap - all decent enough.
Service was more than decent as was the food - in fact the food was top notch - a couple of game dishses being on offer.
Well worth a visit.
Just get the bloody bus !!!!!!
