"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.
