Large brewpub premises about 20 minutes walk from the HBF (tram also available).
Located in a former railway station there are a number of rooms inside and some railway memorabilia is evident.
Have visited here a few time over the years and have set inside and out (you put a card behind the bar and kind of help yourself to beers!).
Most recent visit was Oct ’10 for DM’s 40th bash. We spent 2 hours here and took on a decent lunch as well as the more than adequate house beers including the Gose.
The place was fairly busy and the service held up well.
Definately reccomended when in Leipzig.
Absolutely beautiful setting for good food and great beer. Braumeisterpfanne and their Leipziger Gose is a killer combination. They have 4 of their own beers available (Schwarz, Weisse, Pils and Gose). It’s a bit far from the city center but on a sunny day it’s a nice walk. You can stop at the Panorama Tower on the way.
One of my favourite pubs in Germany. Always good food/service./beer! And not helping being a train buff this bar is like drinking in a railway museum! Have been here 5-6 times and the beers are all good examples of their styles, particularly the Gose, I could really taste the coriander, like Nethergate Umbel Ale in England! A must visit pub, you can’t be disappointed!
Very busy place, but surprisingly efficient and the food was nice. Typical German dishes. Large and very crowded biergarten (as it was a nice and sunny afternoon when we visited). Tasty beer! Well worth a visit.
5 beers on tap. Large and modern. Had spareribs and fries which was boring. My pops had a pasta chicken marinated in cheese which was also pretty dull. Fun to drink the Gose from tap. 4 other draught beers were reasonable. Fine place to drop by.
Fantastic old building. Looks beautiful both on the outside and inside. The four taps were all in good condition. Surprisingly for me as i’m not a big fan of pilseners the Pils stood out along with the gose. Both were really nice.
Came here 3 years ago looking for the Gose .. The place is big and nice but I think is more attractive from outside .. I had some food and it was good in my memories .. I had 1 Gose and 1 schwartzbeer both good with the Gose a step beyond .. I learned to enjoy a Gose more recently and if had to write this review 2 years ago it wouldn’t have been so good ..
Great brewpub. Inside a former train station (for lines linking Saxony to Bavaria). Outside, if you can see over the construction, stands the oldest remaining Kopfbahnof terminus in Europe, site of a future U-Bahn station. Professional brewer, for sure. The train-themed line of beers is worth steaming though, certainly for the Gose, but the pils warrants attention, too. Note: This Gose, while unique, isn’t the one you’re looking for.
I’ve had good and iffy service, though I’ve only ever been there during the dead hours. Lots of partitioned areas, includes an arcade-like Wintergarten and a small outside Biergarten, replete with sandbox and small play area for the kiddies. Inside’s a nice combination of steel, iron, copper, and wood, and I could tell I’d sat in a former ticket-selling area. Could do without the muzak. For the food, hearty local fare, good Haxe, and I enjoyed my Kraut and Leberkäs a bit too much - though the beer tasting might have had something to do with that..
Nearest tram stop is, of course, Bayrischer Bahnhof, via the 2, 9, or 16.
