This is no destination for beer enthusiasts. They serve two of their standard beers and one rotating special brew. All not very interesting. The place is loud, touristy, not much ambiance. Only positive thing is that it's not expensive.
Large single room brewpub with open kitchen to the right, bar to the left, and brew kettles to the rear. Plenty of seating scattered between. Large menu, not expensive. Four beers on tap including 2 "craft beers", in this case a blonde and an IPA.
Visited on 16th July 2016. In a little mews style road in the town centre, tables outside but we went in and the place was very quiet. Large single roomed brewpub with open kitchen. Staff were really friendly and service good. 2 regular beers on tap plus a seasonal (Saphir Lager at 2.7%, light but tasty), there is a list of monthly brews up around the place so obviously experimenting a bit. Food was good, prices decent.
A nice spot to stop and refuel.
You can choose only four beers and actually that’s all.
Food is quite good and combination with beers is quite reasonable.

Have been living around the corner at the next Tor for a while now. Depending on the time of year a rim-packed tourist Keller dive with a tiny alleyway terrace instead of a Biergarten or a basement-level Brauhaus with OK bar service. Bit lacking in space and atmosphere in either case. Waiters can be as snooty, pedantic or lethargic as anywhere to be found this side of the Alps. Redeeming feature is the truly stellar unfiltered Pils, rich and yet excellently sessionable, especially on pitcher nights - and which I invite you to compare with Feierling’s even sweeter Tettnang monobrew called Inselhopf. Other beers are so-so, with times of experimentation where they had a Rauchbier on offer apparently long gone. On-site sale of growler fills and 5L minikegs for €12. - - - Note to Freiburg vistors: always up for a quick trade, bottle share or pitcher chip-in, as I live at a stone’s throw from all 3 local brewpubs.
Visited on a wet and windy afternoon in Sep 2013.
I thought it a strange place: down a few steps from the entrance and you have to walk past the kitchen area and serving bar. Some seats (roped off) to the left, the rest are through towards the rear. The whole joint seemed to be aimed at food more than beer, at least it did at 13:30 on a Wednesday when we entered.
Brewing coppers and tanks in evidence and the semi- modern designed high tables with stools next to more traditional longer tables with benches worked well. Tiled floors and bar fronts and brewery stuff hanging around.
We shared a half chicken and a Laugenbrezel: the Brezel was lovely, the same could not be said of the chicken. The three beers were OK rather than exciting, the staff friendly and unassuming, only coming over when called.
Glad I’ve visited, not really bothered about returning though.
Spacious 20s-themed brewpub situated next to the Martinstor, lots of wood, comfortable enough. The food is ok, though quite expensive, and the three house beers, which are all rather sub-par, are served too cold. I’d say get the ticks and move on to Hausbrauerei Feierling for some food.
