“Best beer in town”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

The establishment is in an old building which used to be the city townhall. It is very well kept and looks great.
They brew their own beer. It's fantastic.
The lower floor and the basement are more like a german-style of pub, with food like schnitzels, sausages and so on, but with great beer. The upper floor is a true restaurant, with good cuisine.

“Great place to have a beer in Darmstadt”
Reviewed 30 October 2012

I went there with some colleagues, after work. This is a typical german pub with their own brewery. The menu is all about german cuisine, the staff is extremely friendly, and the food we had was pretty good as well. A good place to enjoy the german brewery atmosphere, truly enjoyable if you are group of friends!

“Better than average beers with authentic brewery style”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

This is an excellent choice for "cocktail hour". I enjoyed quite a few beers from tap served by a very nice bartender at an excellent price (less than €4 per large beer).

“Nice place for a beer”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

If the weather is nice, this is a great place to sit outside on the plaza for a beer/sausage.

The ground floor has a rustic style restaurant with local cuisine.

Upstairs is a more upscale dining option with pretty nice dishes.

Overall a good place for a meal!
