I’ve been here many times, and continue to go back time and time again. The ambiance is really nice - a large, open drinking and eating space right across the walkway from the brewery, as well as a wonderful beer garden - they even keep it open in the winter with huge heaters and umbrellas. They also carry seasonal specials, including a GREAT maibock. My favorite brew here is their kellerbier, which I usually grab a growler of on my way out the door. Heidelberg is a college town, and this place really draws a crowd.
Vrey busy when we went. Waiter was a bit snobby, though our server was nice. Only 3 beers available, and we had two. One ws an amber ale that was very fruity but way too sweet. The other was a sommer pilsner that seemed to be trying to IPL territory but came off as pissy and stiff. Both were less than average. Not impressed, and slightly expensive as well. Wanted to try the slomewhat acclaimed pilsner.
Schönes altes Brauhaus mit kleinem Biergarten; nette Atmosphäre, ansprechender Service; die Küche bietet traditionelle deutsche Brauhausgerichte in ordentlicher Qualität; im Ausschank sind 2-3 Standardbiere ergänzt um saisonal wechselnde Biere
Visited on a Thursday evening. Huge rather modern place with large tables. 3 regular beers as well as a seasonal winter bock were available. The unfiltered helles is a hop bomb and quite decent. The winter food menu included 2 wild game choices which was nice. Prices were a bit high but the portions were also huge and the quality was good. A nice place I wouldn’t run back to but also wouldn’t mind revisiting.
Stopped in autumn 2014. Modernised beer hall feel welcoming bigger parties, with updated traditional German food menu, slightly upmarket in comparison with other BW Gasthausbrauereien. Very fresh beers in good condition with a great, well-hopped Kräusen. No bar or area to sit at if you just want to sample the beers, though.
It’s a small brewery, restaurant and hotel. They had three brews on when I visited. The food was great: beef rouladen, red cabbage and potatoes. The service was fine by normal German standards. Not worth going out of the way for, but a sure to visit if in Heidelberg.
This is a great local pub at the very end of the Hauptstrasse (on Leyerg.). Authentic food, great atmosphere, and good local brew. It is worth passing all the touristy stuff along the Hauptstrasse and continuing to the end for this place. Thanks to dlovell2 for finding this place.
