Let’s start with the beers. Stiefelbreäu (Boots Brewery) and it’s twin restaurant Zum Steifel (The Boot) offers three different beers, a Munich Dunkel, a Munich Hell and a seasonal brew (Oktoberfestbier when I visited them in September). They sell and refill their own growlers, but none of their beers are bottled.

The brewery-restaurant is divided into three departments: A small cosy bar, a large room with a big copper boiler in the centre and parts of the kitchen at one corner. There is also a balcony with overview of the large room. Seating 180. The restaurant is furnished in a very 90’s way: Whitewashed walls with dark wooden details; the furnishing is mainly in dark wood and brown leather. The atmosphere is relaxed and still a bit stylish/trendy.

The service is good: They serve the guests without getting in the way and know the beers and food.

The food is traditional Southern German: Sauerkraut, gravy-boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes and lots of sausages and boiled meats. The food is served with home baked bread and lots of vegetables. Overall, the food is cooked with lots of love and butter and it tastes great.

The prices were not cheap, especially compared to the neighbour’s macro beers. But wasn’t very expensive either: 0.5 l beer was round €2 and a main dish is 9-20€.

According to a friend of mine living in Saarbrücken, Stiefelbräu is probably the only way to get micro beers in the town.

I really enjoyed the beer. Started with the festbier, which just had a wonderful, understated flavor that goes down incredibly smooth. The dunkel and the helles were just as good. Simple, devastatingly good beer. Nothing fancy, just extremely well done.

I had the fromage plate. In this region of Germany (and also in eastern France), I've found the fromage plate to feature baked potatoes cut in half, with cheese (brie and Munster) melted on top of them. Very nice dish on a cold, wet day in late October.

The service was very good and friendly. I am not sure if I will get back here because there's not much in Saarbruken to see, but if I do go back, it will be to eat/drink at Stiefelbrau.
