Take this establishment with a grain of salt and enjoy it for what it is: a quality brewpub. Settled in the midst of an historically German town, there is little German authenticity about this place, including the brewed offerings. But as a brewpub, it's quite good.

Modern decor, lots of nice rockwork with the brewing equipment just behind the bar. Didn't try the food but looks like above-average pub fare (burgers and fries, etc). Larger room in the back for bands.

The place is usually packed and the beer is excellent. Only four styles offered, none particularly German but I liked everything I tried. Good place to waste a Sunday afternoon, seems like a lot of local regulars present.

This city is a tourist trap, so the beer is made for the masses (the average beer drinker). And, the masses in this area drink "Lone Star" and "Shiner". So the beer is kind of like both of those. I had the pale ale and the IPA - well that is what I ordered - they both tasted the same and not too bad, but no hop bite at all. The food was average bar food and was alright. With all of that said - It was the best place to go in this town, so if I was there, I would go again.

On the Main Street to where you can buy a beer and walk down the street as you drink if you like. Beer was average but for $1.25 for a 4 oz sample you can't beat it. Nice area to relax and cool off from the hot Texas sun. This is a German style pub.

Atmosphere: nothing special. A pretty average brewpub with nothing to make it stick out from the rest.

Quality: I had two beers and tried a third. I'd say they are average at best. Nothing worth making the trip for

Service: a little slow. Waitress was new so I will give them the benefit of the doubt on this one

Selection: six beers all home brewed and nothing special.

Food: some pretty good German foods and regular pub bites. Fairly tasty but nothing that is too special

Overall: I was not impressed with this place. I prefer places that work hard on their beers and have an more standard menu. This place had a clear German theme and sub par german beers

I tried three beers when I visited this pub: Enchanted Rock Red Ale, Pioneer Porter and Peacepipe Pale Ale. The Porter was the only one I enjoyed. The other two were somewhat disappointing.

Nothing particularly novel about the atmosphere. Service was alright, though the chick seemed short and brisk when speaking to us. Decent prices - I'm glad they offer samples. Unfortunately, we were unable to try the food.

Next time we'll try another brewery in Fredericksburg, since this one wasn't quite convincing enough to visit once more.

They make about 20 something beers, but they only carry about 6 at any given time.

None of the 3 I tried were particularly good, but I still had a fun time trying them out.

They sold 4oz samplers for $1.25, so that helped make for a better tasting experience. I wouldn't have really cared for full glasses of the ones I had.

I wish I had the time to try some of the food, but I'll have to try that out this summer when I pass through on the way to Austin again.

Not a bad experience, but I wasn't impressed. Will stop by again though to try some more beers next time. For the price and location, why not?

This is right on the main drag of Fredericksburg. It is a charming little brewpub. There is a large room in front as you walk in. The bar is to the right with all the brewing equipment behind the bar. The room is pretty much a big concrete building. There are a hand full of rooms that people can stay in upstairs as well. There is a beer garden in the back with an excellent sign that says "Less Government, More beer." That says it all. Very relaxed like the rest of the town.

The bartenders are very enthusiastic about their beer. Which is always good. The service was fast, friendly, and knowledgeable. No complaints here.

The selection is a bit to be desired. Pretty much a standard selection. A porter, pale, red, helles, ext. Nothing exciting, but nothing bad either. The helles was very good and an excellent example of a lager. If you hit the brewery at the right time they can have some really good offerings though (an Imperial Stout, a Maibock, an excellent coffee porter). Mostly the aforementioned beers though.

The food is all over the place, and nothing really excellent. I have not tried the German sausage plates, which are probably very good. Though the rest is just typical pub grub. There are other places in town that I would go to for a meal first.

Overall, a very nice place to grab a beer. They don't make a lot of crazy beer geek styles, but are very good at what they do. Which is making good quality beers in a fun atmosphere. I would be a regular if I lived in the area. Recommend if visiting the area.

Got the pleasure of trying out this place out over the weekend during Oktober Fest in Fredericksburg. Beer was very good, smapled there red ale and there seasonal oktoberfest brew, but i fell in love with there aniversary ipa, had several pints during the course of the afternoon. Staf is very knowledgable on the beers that are brewed there. Worth a day trip (depending on how close you live to Frederickburg) to go have some great food and great beer.

The food is exceptional, great sandwhiches, pizza is to die for, german style food, scotch eggs, and fried pickles that will make you wet your pants. Everything that they have on the menu will strike anyones fancy. Great atmosphere to be able to eat and drink right inside the brewerey. They also have a "bed and brew" where you can come stay the weekend right above the brew pub, how cool is that, walk down stars and go have a tastey brew. I highly recommend stoping in it is well worth the wait on a busy afternoon, and while you wait have a couple of their tasty beers.
