If the place is that old it was renovated because the interior looks very new. I stopped by in the evening to enjoy a beer as many other customers did the same thing. The beer prices are very reasonable and competitive with all other bars...More

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.
