Cozy, rather spacious brewpub located in a residential area off the centre. Always quiet just after opening, no music, just the waiters and a handful of guests. Hearty, typical Brauhaus food is available but didn't try any. They offer four regular beers (Pils, Dunkel/Schwarzbier, hoppy Weizen and a hoppy ale called Zwickel) and seasonals/one-offs, three at the same time right now. Flights with five of their offerings are available if you ask kindly, at least the regulars can also be taken away in 1 l-bottles. Quality of the beers can be from okay (Weizen, Zwickel) to great (Dunkel, Schwarzbier). Staff is very friendly and attentive, quite different to some other brewpubs or Brauhäuser, prices for the beers are still ok by German standards (4 € per 0.3 l). Will check out more of their one-offs and seasonals if in the area again.

More or less a regular 'trinkgut' like most in this area. Has some more Altbiers (Uerige, Schumacher etc.) and a small (very small) shelf with craft beer with the likes of Schacht 8, Brewdog, Insel-Braurei or Bergmann, probably much less than some years ago. Staff is friendly, prices are the same as in every other 'trinkgut', lots of parking space in front of it and very close to the highway, so nothing to moan about. Not worth a detour, still a reasonable place to stock up on standard German ticks.

0.5 l bottle from local 'Trink & Spare', best before February 2024. Hazy, golden yellow with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, slightly sourish, rather fruity aroma of lemon, lime and traces of grains. Fairly sweet, moderately bitter, a bit sourish, rather fruity taste of lemon, some lime and hints of grains, followed by a short, gently bitter, a bit tart finish. Almost medium-bodied, gently effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice Radler.

Large bottle store located in a former industrial site, surrounded by a large supermarket, a foodhall, coffee roaster and butcher. Lots of parking space outside. I'd guess they have around 500 to 1000 beers in stock, mainly Dutch craft beer with quite some locals but also from American, German and other European breweries. Average prices measured by Dutch standards, friendly staff, modern appearance. Highly recommended, would definitely come back again if I was around.

Ordered from their web shop as I wanted a specific wine as a gift for friends. Fortunately, they offer a small selection of local beers as well. Most interesting to me was Batzen Bräu and maybe Pfefferlechner, other than that there is not much else. Shipping was fairly slow, prices are alright. Spirits can't be shipped abroad by the way. Should have visited their store in person but I wasn't aware of it when I was there.
