Description: Bratislava Burgess Brewery in Drevena Street follows an old tradition of the famous Burgess Brewery, “Die Bürgerliche Brauerei“, called the Burgher by residents. Nice beer was brewed there and the adjacent brewery restaurant was well-known for its domestic cuisine. The new brewery is on three floors and it aims to lure visitors mainly with a special kind of its own beer which it produces in opposition to industrially brewed beer. The Burgess Brewery is equipped with the most modern technology that is currently available for minibreweries. God bless you”, this is how also maltsters greet each other and this greeting is also in the house. “The process of brewing of our beer starts with the selection of the raw ingredients of the highest quality. Brewing is done by a traditional technology of double malting using traditional raw ingredients: malt, water, hops and yeast, nothing else to be added. It is brewed exclusively from hops of the highest quality, sourced from Zatevec region. Water used for production is filtered and adjusted. Our beer is the beer of Pilsner type, it is produced by the standard process of bottom fermentation,” says maltster Peter Pramuk. Besides the technology of the highest quality, the process of the beer production is imbedded also in the soul of three owners – beer fans who a few years ago were observing the conceptions of minibreweries with restaurants all around the world. They insisted that beer should be bitter exactly to their taste. And this was something that excellent maltsters – Mr Brauner and Mr Pramuk – have perfectly mastered. In order to produce 12 degree beer, the main fermentation takes 8 to 10 days, next fermentation takes 4 weeks. Beer is not filtered or pasteurized, and so it contains live yeast. Beer is carbonized which means that oxidation or beer aging is prevented. Since unfiltered beer does not come into contact with oxygen, rotting is avoided which has a positive impact on its quality. Subsequently, nice hop odour of beer is released and its repletion or greater taste richness is emphasized. Traditional, conservative, sound and hearty cuisine which goes with beer tries to follow original Pressburg formulas. Naturally, the cuisine is today technologically totally different but some traditional procedures in recipes work till nowadays. The chef Frantisek Sipos stresses the seasonality of some meals or raw food like asparagus, mushrooms, venison or slaughter season which will vary the rigid menu a là carte. Also sweet meals like “sufrle” (dumplings) come from Pressburg. Other caloric calibres are meals proved by decades, for example beef sirloin in cream sauce, dill sauce and homemade dumpling, roast knee or deliciously served brewery delicacy or tartar steak and toast.

I was introduced to Bratislavsky Mestiansky Pivovar by a local as being the best Microbrewery in Slovenia. It lived up to its reputation. I checked it out by giving a beer a try from the bar and ended up spending the evening having dinner and a few more beers. While at the bar I happened to meet a German beer connoisseur from Munich who was also visiting the Mestiansky pub to give it a try. He concurred it was the best he’s had in all of Slovenia. The food was also great.

A huge pub/restaurant but it can get very busy most evenings. There seemed to be a good mix of tourists and locals. The beer is excellent, loads of choice. The food is ok, nothing special and there is better to be found in town. Staff were ok. Overall its a lively pub and worth a visit if you're nearby but not worth going out of your way.

Great place to go to with friends. Great dark draft beer. Food is delicious great with their beers. Meat, slovak specialities, salads with goat cheese and so on. But the most favorite are their spreada with home made bread. How tempting tastes. Worth trying.

Very nice place serving not only local but also international pub food. The dishes are delicious and come in big portions, so don't order too much or you will end up like me feeling stuffed and miserable. They have a big selection of beer to go with the food and the prices are very reasonable. Value for money!
