This is one of my favorite places in Germany, in the world for that matter, again been going there for over 25 years. I used to give tours of the city to visiting soldiers. The beers are fantastic and the Brewpub is nice and small. Food is quite good and you can walk around back and see the brewing process through the large glass windows. If you sweet talk the staff you might get a private tour. Also a little secret is that at night under the brewpub is a full swing music club that serves the same beer as above while playing 20 year old music, a fun place, one of the few breweries that have a club in it. Try the bock beer in season.
They don’t fool with the beer here. On visiting day 5 superb beers were on tap, fresh, clean and tasty. Competition stuff. The food was not bad either. The beer goulash I had was solid. Menu and service are available in english, no problem of communications here. They give free bols of malt to chew instead of peanuts, and you can buy a bag of it as well to take out. Original idea. About 15 minutes walk from main train station. Well worth the detour.
Nice place - great traditional food and fresh delicious beer (Dunkler Bock is my favorite), but service is average.

I really enjoyed the ambience, the food, and the beer. When I visited the Altstadthof during one afternoon, a retired American serviceman came in with his family, and employees came out from everywhere to greet him. He told me that he been a regular there during his enlistment and this was his first return after years. I would have liked to have spent as much time there as that guy obviously had done in the past.

This brewpub proved a good place to shelter in a snowstorm in November 2006. It is well-situated in the Altstadt with friendly, attentive service and a comfortable, tidy interior. The beers were very good, particularly the Schwarzbier. Excellent.
