Visited 11.10.17. Lots of framed old local ephemera and newspaper clips on the wall and a Heinrich Heine protema - made the booknerd me happy. The regular Altbier's good but the 1838er had some off flavors. Service was friendly.
Nice looking place, one of the more modern Alt-places I visited. Service wasn't unfriendly, but showed quite the opposite of passion. They have 2 alts available, which makes it a double as big beerlist to chose from than most other places. Prices were OK.
(visited about once a year since 2012, last: late 2016) - My preferred Alt’s home is not an instantly lovable 2nd living room as one of the Uerige parlours, but functions pretty well. I now mainly stopover here to pick up my supply of Schumacher 1838 which has dropped off a bit since its initial jubilee introduction. -
Köbes waiters, many of them of Greek and otherwise imported origin it seems, are very matter of fact and can be as efficient or rude as you provoke them to be, depending if you want the full experience of the Alt Safari in group or on your own. - Speisekarte: can’t leave without a fresh and on-point Rindertatar or Schweinemett-Happen to go with your rounds, nicely seasoned to fit a traveller’s liquid appetite. Fair pricing considering the posh general surroundings of D-Dorf, still on a national brewery heritage level with Franconia, taking everything into account.
Ambiance - Big German style bar with plenty of room both indoors and outdoors. We went for one of the tables on the street so we got some rather nice busy street life but not much ambience of the actual place. Service - Friendly but not very interested. Selection - The Schumacher alt which was solid. Food - Did not eat. Value - Fair Additional comments - None!
