Interesting restaurant inside the 'Krakauer Haus' with a Polish touch although the menu also features Franconian food and especially beer. Sat outside in the beergarden during a sunny afternoon waiting for my train to arrive at the main station, had enough time to enjoy a Spalter Zwickel on tap. Five other draft beers are available, mostly Franconian lagers. The small bottle list focuses on Franconia as well. Very relaxed atmosphere, solid service, very decent pricing. Is apparently very crowded during the evening, so reservation is recommended. Nice venue!

"Liebesbier" is more or less in the cellar of "Maisel's Bier-Erlebnis-Welt", located in the old brewery of Maisel's, where there's also a beer shop with Maisel beers, German craft and some standard craft beer which can be found everywhere, a museum and so on. "Liebesbier" looks rather modern and isn't intended to be a traditional brewpub. There's lots of wood and metal, while the old bricks are covered by that unfortunately, interior is rather modern, still cozy. Fortunately, they have a spacious patio as well with some sort of a garden as well. The beer menu is mainly Maisel (most of the taps), but there is quite some space for German and international craft as well (a few guest taps but mainly from bottle). Maisel's India Ale and Maisel's Dry Stout are only available here. Tasting boards can be ordered as well. Nice beer selection, but many of the guest beers are widely available. The food is rather modern, hardly any traditional dished on the menu, think of burgers, pulled pork, veggie options or steaks but often with a twist and definitely not as simple as it sounds. For a beer place, the food is pretty high class, but I rather prefer the more traditional, less fancy and less expensive menus. Service is quite attentive but not too knowledgeable, prices for the beers are average (rather high for Franconia), prices fo the food are a little high. Overall, this is a must visit if in Bayreuth, maybe even if in the area, but I don't really get all the high praise for that place as it feels a little anaemic, even if it was well-visited on a Friday during lunch time, still within pandemic times.

Rather large, classic Brauhaus with loods of wood and visible brewing equipment. Three beers on tap (also ready for takeaway in 1 l growlers): Pils, Weizen and seasonal. Food is classic as well, had some hearty "Maultaschen" which were tasty but nothing extra-ordinary. Prices are reasonable, service is very attentive and friendly. A good stop for combining some food with solid beers.

Small but well-assorted liquor store, rather focusing on whisky and other spirits instead of beer. However, there is a small (and I mean small) corner for local beers like Vermeersen or Dutch Bargain. The store itself looks rather old-fashioned (in a nice way), very inviting. Super friendly owner (I guess), would rather like to spend my money here than a few doors next. Worth a stop if you are looking for local beers in Sluis.

Very small beer store in the picturesque city centre. Unfortunately, it wasn't possible to enter it, probably due to voluntary covid restrictions, but only to be served at a bar. However, I had a glimpse a their selection which mainly consists of Belgian beers including lambics (often in 75 cl), but also British, German and some local beers as well as cider. Didn't check the prices as I don't like it if I can't browse the beers by myself, would have liked to do so. Other than that, it's an interesting beer spot in the middle of Zeeland.

Medium-sized liquor store, I'd say rather focusing on whisky but also with a large corner for craft beer. Mainly Dutch craft, but also with some Belgians and international stuff. The selection is a little deeper than at 'Kijk op Drank', the prices minimally steeper IRIC. There is a small seating area, maybe for tastings etc. The owner (I guess) is quite chatty and friendly, really appears enthusiastic with what he does. Nice shop!
