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.

Because the brewpub concept fits so perfectly with the old world-noveau hipness of the Texas Hill Country, I was excited about an opportunity to visit the Fredericksburg Brewing Company. I had expected an honest German "brewpub" atmosphere, which shouldn't have been difficult, considering the place is in the middle of a German settlement. But, although it had a slight charm about it, the atmosphere was artificial.

In all fairness, it was a weekend lunch hour in the middle of spring. This is the time of year when bluebonnets and peaches are in full bloom and so the Hill Country becomes a tourist mecca for cabin-feverish Texans. Not exactly the ideal time to 'review' a brewpub.

Either way, our server seemed frustrated as she made us wait 15-20 minutes between visits to our table. The German Sausage sampler was mediocre (at best), coming to the table at room temperature and tasting like it came straight off a Sysco Foodservice truck. And the beer wasn't terrible. It was just.. Blah -- every one of them (I had a sampler which included bock, pilsner, a wheat ale and a blond ale). No bouquet.. Semi-flat in the flavor department.. And no finish whatsoever.. It was what you would expect out of a big brewery's version of a crafted beer.

Next time I'm in Fredericksburg, I'll probably give them a chance to redeem themselves, but with lower expectations. By the way, the manager was nice enough to send us away with a handful of souvenier coasters
