4 Biere vom Fass, darunter immer ein wechselndes Bier des Monats, die wechselnden Gerichte der wirklich sehr guten Küche aowie die immer freundliche Bedienung machen einen Besuch in Kölns kleinstem Brauhaus zur Pflicht.
Visited 10.10.17 in the evening. Far from the city center but 5 minute walk from the crummy hostel we stayed at. It was busy with early diners when we arrived but service was friendly and patient regardless. Braustelle beer on tap and in bottles, local gin bottles too. Prices were reasonable. Vegans - note that they dip the pretzels in butter. We would've been just as happy if we had to do the 25 minutes train ride from the city center + walk.

An unassuming bar that’s fairly small by local standards and situated out of the city center but easily reachable by public transport. It’s got a slightly run down charm and there’s a varied selection of Braustelle beers on tap and by bottle. Friendly helpful service and fair prices.
Very easy too reach by subway. Drank every beer on tap (8), pretty nice overall. I didn’t have any food. Place was really full, and cosy, but there was still room at the bar. Staff was nice and knowledgeable. Service was immediate. Prices were fair, but varied quite a bit.
Don’t miss it when you are in Cologne!
Rather small, a little run-down bar close to Ehrenfeld station. Up to eight of their own beers on tap of which four are available all the time, plus a few from bottle which can be taken home as well, nothing else. Quite a lot of variation of styles for decent prices. The service was quick and attentive, but the waitress was rather new and did not really know anything about the beers. Some simple, but local and traditional food is also available, but I did not try it. Probably the most interesting beer place in Cologne so far, would come here regularly if I lived here.
Nice pub with a student/alternative feel to it. Small brewkit is in the back corner. Good selection of beers from the brewery, with a nice, though atypical Kölsch (which I’d personally prefer over a typical Kölsch every day. Also selling bottles for takeaway. Food is decent pub fare, bit international style.
Would recommend for anyone who is in Koeln, especially as a good break from the standard Kölsch places.
Visited in April 2016. Relaxed brewpub / restaurant in Ehrensfeld area of Cologne. Food looked good but didn’t try any of it. Beer servings are sized according to beer strength (high % beers are only served as a 200 ml pour), which I quite liked. Prices were OK too, most beers were less than 3€ per serving. I tried most of the 7 - 8 beers on tap, most of which I liked. All were own brews, apart from one guest. Favourites were: Wilde Wutz (wild ale), Amarillo Weiße and Tzarina (oak aged imp. stout). Least favourite was the Helios (Kölsch), which i thought was far too bitter for that style. Service was fast and friendly. I also bought a couple of bottles to take with me. Would go again and try the food next time.

Looks like a student’s dive bar, which I like. Quite a nice selection of self-brewed beers and some others, with a variety of styles on tap. Some beers are really good, some are so-so, some are boring, but in general, they’re pretty good. Nice service, sometimes they have live jazz music. Worth a visit if you are in Cologne.
