Cramped and touristy with nothing about the beer intriguing. Small wood-paneled interior, pretty much your classic German setting. Four beers on tap and 4-5 in bottles at the shop across the entrance hall. Bockbier on tap for the fall was decent but unexciting. Worth checking out as the beer isn’t terrible but don’t expect anything to wow you.
This is well on the tourist trail and the prices reflect that. Beer goes for €3+ for 40cl pours. The quality was hit and miss. Attached gift shop for takeaways. Convenient with Hutt’n over the road.

Really nice brewpub that we visited on Tuesday 5th June 2012. I have to say that I was mightily impressed with the Maibock in particular but the other beer that I had was also pleasant. Nice surroundings, service fine, food looked very nice as well. The shop was closed for lunch when we were there so missed out on visiting that. This place is located directly opposite Hutt’N and was open when Hutt’N was closed, though we did get to the latter, later on in the day.
December 2011 - Tiny even by Germany standards, this cozy little brewpub is not far from the center square, up the hill near the Burg. We scored 4 seats at the bar to eat dinner, a good find since otherwise the few seats were taken. Altstadthof offers a slightly broader variety than most German brewpubs -- including seasonal offerings. The food was delicious and firmly within the classic, regional style -- with a heavy emphasis on wurst, of course. The bartender was efficient and quite friendly, despite being nearly overwhelmed. We would most certainly return! (Brewery #563)
Conveys a more upscale take on the traditional Bavarian decor but still has quite a bit of character. A rather large complex with the bar/restaurant, a large garden/patio, and a gift shop selling the beers, the beer schnapps, and glassware. A bonus is that you can get sampler size beers at the bar, which incidentally turned out to be all we wanted...unfortunately the beers were a bit limp when we were there.
Visited several times with my parents, places in the citycenter close to the old castle. Nice, cosy place, with a few outside seatings as well. Easy to get to the brewpub, if you are in Nürnberg. Friendly staff, and normally the beers are in ok condition. Can at times be crowded and busy, then you have to be very patient to be served..
I score my beers and until I tried the Weiss all 3 (red,black and helles) all got A+. No other brewery of my 9000-odd beers had such consistent high scores. Their beers are in the league of Trappist beers. They are simply superb. I have a tear in my eye just thinking of this place. If you like tasty beer then come here. At times the bar is a bit clicky but put on a thick skin and enjoy superb beer. I am already planning a re-visit!
