Stayed across the road and this seems a popular choice, we went twice and enjoyed both experiences. Firstly, great range of craft beers and enjoyed the six taster tray also. Good wine selection also. Food was good - generous burgers and my wife had a veal steak. Lots of options, get a menu, don't just look at the simple menu by the door, indoor and outdoor options, enjoyed sitting under the wisteria and people watching. As in all of these parts, smokers can make or break the experience!

Had dinner with friends and were really looking forward to taste their beers. I saw their seasonal Habanero pilz and really wanted to taste it, but unfortunately they did not have it. Instead I ordered a Colonial IPA (I think) and schweinshaxe. The service was super fast, however one of us did not get his beer, so we asked for it again. They forgot to bring it again, so yet again we reminded them about the beer. The guy that we asked counted the beers on our tables as if he thought we were fooling him, and then confirmed that he saw that it was missing and walked away. After waiting some more time we had to ask for it for the fourth time and finally we got it! (But no excuse at all for the bad service). In general the service looked completely disorganized with staff running randomly between tables.

We tried a few different of their beers and all except the Barley wines were rather dull. We could just as well have ordered a Heiniken or something like that.

The schweinshaxe was dry and also lacked some taste. The only two that were happy with their food were those that ordered the beef.

Had lunch on a Saturday. Tried the Artist's platter which included a pork shank, grilled ribs, grilled sausage with potato wedges, sauerkraut and dumplings. Meat a tad dry but overall a good meal. Cover charge of 2 euros (for bread which we didn't consume). Tried the dunkel (dark wheat beer), gose (salty and sour beer). Both were great. Friendly servers, many spoke English. Meal for two with 3 small beers cost 46 euros.

Ate here while staying in Bologna, very popular and good atmosphere. They did seem a bit short staffed so took a while to get our orders in. Great food (starter of Melon and strawberry chilled soup, followed by Groestl). Great selection of beers...went back the next day for beer, loved the Colonial IPA. They also had live music on when we ate there. Good value for money. One our companions had a beer tasing selection which he enjoyed.

Yum! Very helpful server & even I drank a beer though I don’t normally! Batzen Spritz was my girlie beer version. My husband had the Vienna beer, too mild for him & then tried Batzen Viennarillo & likes it very much! Fun place, helpful staff.
