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.

This pub spans 3 floors & gets very busy so finding a table isn't easy. You can reserve a table in advance.

The home-brewed beer & the food is excellent. We tried the "beer cheese" to start which involves fried bread which you DIY with mustard, a smoky cheese in a dark beer, garlic, onion & chilli. We shared an enormous piece of pork (it doesn't say it's to share on the menu but it's 20 euros & nearly 2kg). It came with a range of yummy chillis, peppers & gherkins & bread. This was divine & we couldn't finish it so a homeless man got a nice sandwich out of it! The menu is variations of traditional Slovak food which mostly involve dumplings & meat (there are 2 fish options) or cheese.

The price was very reasonable for the quality but everything in Bratislava seems relatively expensive if you've come from Budapest.

Travelers put this delightful 1752 pub on your must stop list. Nearby the Crowne Plaza hotel down an alleyway, the restaurant is located in close proximity to the the Grassalko-vichova and Hodzovo but towards the Centrum. Delicious food and homemade beer with low prices and I ended up having a gourmet meal for 14 euros, including tip. A roasted duck leg with stewed red cabbage, homemade ham dumplings and it included a potato pancake and their signature beer. Plus the third floor was a beautiful wood work and artsy setting.

I had just arrived at the Crowne Plaza after a long trip and I wanted a restaurant near the hotel with some authentic Slovak food and the hotel recommended Pivor which I could see from my hotel room and I must say I wasn't disappointed. I ordered a young Pork knuckle which I was told would take 40 minutes so I also ordered a grilled smoked sausage which was served with mustard and grated horseradish and a beer to keep me going. They have two types of beer light and dark. When the pork knuckle arrived it was huge so it much have come from a very large young pig!! It was served with Slovak Loksa which is a potato pancake and potato dumplings. It was excellent with plenty of crackling but the pancake totally defeated me. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and had an English menu. All in all a good dining experience at what I would consider a great price.
