“Get yourself a Kanne!”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Great place for large groups of people. Outside seating, or a nice open air seating in the brewery. Food is average but they brew a pretty good beer and the prices are on par with the rest of the city.

“Love the Beer”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

Best Beer there is if you like it cloudy.
If you can't get enough you also can take it home with you in 3L bottles up to 50L cask :D.
The food is a very good match to the beer and portions are big.
Its not french cusine but its what you need when you have a few beers with friends and family.

“Absolutely THE place to visit in Hannover”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

This place enjoys to be THE place for our team when ever visiting Hannover. It offers great food ("Sweinhaxe") and their own brewred beer. Service is always very fast and evenings always very very nice. Also this time. Food quality is very good, atmosphere always extremely nice. This time they had some local houseband play all kind of music and party was really there. I can describe it, you need to experience it. Still prices are very reasonable.

“Large pub/brewery/nightclub”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

I have been to this place at three different occassions(2009,2010,2013). All of them around January after visiting the floor fair Domotex.

The restaurant part of this place is located on the right hand side of the entry. It's quite a small place and looks more like a burger place than a restautrant. All of us had steaks for dinner and we were pleasently surprised of both the quality of the food and the service. There are better restaurants around Hannover if the purpose of the dinner is a quite evening out, but it really serves it's purpose of feeding customers on the way to the pub/night club part next door.

The actual pub, or more beer hall is cool and large. It's usually a lot of international people attending this place in times of ongiong exhibiting in the large Hannover Fair.

Try the large cags of beer than can be ordered out and put on your table...

The dance area is really good as well so this is a place for a full night out :)

“Good food and beer”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

I went here a couple of times while staying in Hannover and enjoyed it both times. The beer is tasty, not standard eurolager crap. I had the currywurst and the brauhaus schitzel and both were very good. You can sit outside if the weather is ok which is a bonus.
